CHALLENGE TAKEN from the pdf mentioned back here
Suggestion for today from there:
DAILY PRAYER from Germaine Copeland author of "Prayers that Avail Much", I added in the comment section here that we call "Prayers Lifted to the Throne of God" (many times it is part of the challenge for the day as an example of how to Pray God's Word effectively)
[and also today's Daily Prayer is at the bottom of the blog posts]
"Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." James 5:16
Pray and thank God for the strength so far to keep this challenge.
Ask for continued strength to face this challenge and some of the weak areas that might be exposed in your life.
"To confess is to do two things with our sin: 1) to recognize sin for what it is in God's eyes and 2) to get rid of our secrets and be honest with another Christian. James' language is powerful. He mentions that this confession doesn't just bring forgiveness. It also brings healing." ~ Phil Ware
(example of a prayer)...
Holy Father, I have sinned. I now confess my own personal sin of ____________. I ask for Your forgiveness and for Your Spirit to strengthen me in overcoming temptation. I want to live for You and not let my sin, any sin, entangle me and draw me away from You. Through Jesus I pray. Amen

Comments are ON but were OFF last week because we only leave PRAYERS here not comments but thanks to the many of you that did visit and the ones that did make the extra effort to come and let me know. I've decided to leave comments open and up to you this week... if you leave a comment in PRAYERS LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD, it needs to be a prayer... Pray what is on your heart or your verse today or this verse, but if you'd like me to visit you just leave a word or prayer and link to you...
