Joyce Meyer – A Deeper Level of Prayer

 

. . . Not My will, but [always] Yours be done. — Luke 22:42 (AMPC)

Adapted from the resource The Power of Being Thankful – by Joyce Meyer

Asking God for what we need and want in the natural realm is definitely not wrong, but we shouldn’t have our main focus on those things. God’s Word says that He knows what we need before we ask Him (see Matthew 6:8), so all we need to do is let Him know that we’re trusting Him to take care of everything that concerns us.

After we ask God to meet our daily physical needs, we can focus the majority of our prayer time on talking to Him about our spiritual needs; things like spiritual maturity, developing and displaying the fruit of His Spirit, obedience, and walking in love, to name a few. We also have the privilege of praying for other people and being part of their victories. God is inviting us to a deeper walk with Him, and the closer we get to Him, the more our desires will become like His.

Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for hearing me every time I pray. Even though I have daily needs that I bring to You, help me grow into a deeper level of prayer where I can begin to hear and pray what’s on Your heart. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
