How’s your prayer life? I keep hearing or seeing “prayer” popping up everywhere. I have to admit that my prayer life is not where it could be. In fact, I sometimes rush through my prayer time because I’m tired or not interested. I watched War Room and felt so inspired at Ms. Clara’s prayer life and the passion she has for it. I tried making a war binder thinking that it would be better than my prayer journal but it fell flat. I’ve had to learn to let go of the expectations and just focus on talking with Him but I’ve also learned that since this is a weaker area I need to pay attention and learn more about prayer. I’m reading Fervent by Priscilla Shirer and am learning how to pray strategically because we all have areas of prayer that we can improve upon.
I was talking with a friend the other day about how walls keep popping up and preventing us from doing certain things. Road blocks. Fears. Walls. Whatever you label them, they could just be ways the enemy is deterring you from accomplishing certain things. One of the walls I faced was when I felt convicted to get baptized. I had been baptized as an infant but felt called to proclaim my faith as an adult. As soon as I committed to the baptism, I felt dreadful and anxious. I didn’t want to share my testimony or get baptized in the ocean. I felt blocked in some regards but excited in other ways.
So what’s the point? My point is that the enemy studies us. He knows what buttons to push. He throws up walls and waters our seeds of self-doubt. The enemy wants us paralyzed and distracted from the things we could be doing. He wants us to think that we’re not worthy. He wants us to settle. What would your life look like if you were 100% confident? Take the step and walk out in faith (this is assuming that what you want to do aligns with scripture). Don’t let the enemy stop you in your tracks. God is with you so anything is possible! Tear down the walls and climb your mountain!
What’s holding you back? We’d love to pray for you specifically. What are your dreams? We hope y’all are having a wonderful Monday! As always, we love hearing from you! ❤
