Finish 2019 with 40 days of prayer! Day 20
"Faith in a prayer-hearing God will make a prayer-loving Christian." Andrew Murray
You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. (Isaiah 26:3, NKJV)
This has always been a personal verse to me - I have laid in bed many times saying this verse again and again in my mind. Other versions translate it as steadfast, but I love this translation because it seems very specific - it is my mind that is stayed, fixed, focused on God and as I do that, I am kept in His perfect peace. What a great and precious promise!
Praise God for the things in your life that drive you closer to Him. If that's too much, praise Him for His presence even in hard things.
Pray that God would show you how you can best keep your mind stayed on him. What works best for you and your personality?
Pray that the Holy Spirit will specifically intervene in situations where there is stress and discord to bring His peace.
Pray that God would use the LOVE INC Christmas store to minister to those in need this season. Pray for opportunities for spiritual conversations as guests shop for their families.
Pray that God would minister His comfort to those grieving during this season.
Let's look with expectation for answers that God provides in these final days of 2019!
