Today’s Verse

For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh.

Romans 9:3

Friday, July 8

Our third principle, pray with confidence, comes from a Jewish form of teaching that argues from the lesser to the greater. If a grouchy neighbor will rise in the night to meet your need because you persistently call to him, how MUCH MORE will a gracious, loving, faithful Heavenly Father give when you call upon His name!

For example, the Bible is filled with confident prayer warriors:

  1. We need to pray like MOSES who prayed that the Hebrews would not be destroyed for their disobedience.
  2. We need to pray like ESTHER who prayed that the Jews would be saved from the wicked works of Haman.
  3. We need to pray like DANIEL who prayed for Israel with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes for three weeks (Daniel 9:3).
  4. We need to pray for the lost as PAUL prayed for unbelieving Jews (today’s verse).
  5. We need to pray like JESUS in the garden who said, “Not My will, but thine, be done” (Luke 22:42).

Timidity in our prayer life is not healthy. Pray with confidence today for that lost person that you identified earlier this week.
