Finish 2019 with 40 days of prayer! Day 36
"The whole reason why we pray is to be united into the vision and contemplation of God to whom we pray." - Julian of Norwich
"See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him."
What a joy and privilege to be called a child of God! We are so loved by Him. Zephaniah 3:17 says "The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing." He rejoices over us, over you and me. He rejoices over the people in our lives.
Praise God for His extravagant grace and loving-kindness to you.
Pray that God would increase our desire to intercede for others and make prayer a constant part of our lives.
Ask God to increase our desire for His word and for transformation in us.
Pray that God would protect leaders and their families.
Ask God to show us where we can reflect the compassion and grace of Jesus in our families and neighborhoods.
Let's look with expectation for answers that God provides in these final days of 2019!
