11/5/14 Daily Devotion

James 5:15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.

Many people offer prayers on a daily basis. They pray for their food, for safety on the roadway, for their children’s day at school, as well as many other needs. Prayer is a wonderful way to convey your needs and the needs of others to God. That stated, there can sometimes be a small issue arise when it comes to prayer. Sometimes prayers become stale and/or habitual. More often than we realize, we offer the same prayers, especially when it is within the same context or situation. We might not even realize this is happening, but it does, unfortunately more than we would have guessed. These prayers then become emotionless and almost void of any reality or compassion. God wants to hear what we have to say, but He also wants us to offer it in a way that demonstrates the current level of our relationship. When we were newborn or young Christians, we prayed as if this were true; but as the days and years pass by, this must change. As the days and years pass by, our prayers must form from the depths of our relationships with God, form the depths of our hearts. If they do, they will be filled with power.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me pray in a way that demonstrates the position You have in my life, in a way that declares my trust and faith in You.
