Day 5: Prayers of Petition

Today’s Scripture:

One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.
Psalm 27:4

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
Hebrews 13:16

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.
Matthew 7:7-8

Additional Scriptures:
1 Peter 5:7
Matthew 9:36-38

Prayer + Reflection

  1. God invites us to come to Him, to know Him and to delight in His presence. Pause for a few moments today (2-5 minutes) and take some time to let God fill you with His presence.
  2. God is the giver of all good things. Take a moment to thank Him, then ask for those things you (or someone you love) need that only God can provide.
  3. Pray for God to direct you to someone who needs His generosity and to reveal how to live into being generous towards that person today.

Family Moment

Make two lists as a family; one of all God has blessed you with, and one of people with whom you can share your blessings. Say this prayer together when you’re finished; “God, You supply for our every need and have been faithful, thank you. Help our family to share with others. Amen!”
