Putting Prayer into Practice – Myles Munroe

Are You on “Someday Island”? by myles munroe
January 30
For several days, we have talked about our redemption in Christ. Now, ask yourself these questions: Do I ever feel isolated from God, unsure of where I stand with Him, or unclear about how to pray? Am I praying based on the effects of the fall or the effects of Christ’s redemptive work on my behalf?
Take some action steps in the coming days in regard to your redemption. Begin today to apply the redemption of Christ to your prayer life by acknowledging Jesus’ restoration of your relationship with the Father and your purpose of dominion. Remind yourself daily that your redemption means that Satan and sin no longer have authority over you, that you have access to the Father and authority through Jesus’ name, and that you have authority through the Word of God.
Start approaching God based on this promise: “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). Now let us pray together:
Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for never giving up on us but for redeeming us for Yourself and Your purposes through Jesus Christ, the Second Adam. Paul prayed for the Thessalonians that You would count them worthy of Your calling, and that by Your power You would fulfill every good purpose of theirs and every act prompted by their faith. We ask You to count us worthy of our calling and to enable us to fulfill Your purposes, through the grace, faith, and authority we have in Christ. We pray these things in the name of Jesus, our Redeemer and King. Amen.
Thought: Am I praying based on the effects of the fall or the effects of Christ’s redemptive work on my behalf?
Reading: Exodus 23–24; Matthew 20:1–16
