40 Ways to Pray – Devotional

Day 36 – Pray using a Daily Devotional

So the first key to pray using a daily devotional is to first set aside that time with you and the Lord each day for Bible reading and prayer – I call that quiet time.  The second is to use some kind of devotional to help you during that quiet time.

I like to use a short daily devotional as part of my quiet time.  Just a verse and short story to set my focus.  I don’t use this for all of my quiet time usually, but some days that may be all I use.

A devotional is helpful because they will cover the scripture in a variety of ways and help me bring attention something that I may not have looked at in a while.  It is almost certain to cover more topics of praise than I could come up with myself.

So go online or to your local bookstore and find a good Bible based devotional to help you find a daily topic of prayer.

My Prayer for Today

Lord I thank you for the devotionals that you have shown to me and allowed me to purchase.  Please use those to guide my mind and deepen my relationship with You.  In the name of Jesus I pray.
