Suggestion for today from there:DAILY PRAYER from Germaine Copeland author of "Prayers that Avail Much"
Day 26: Pray and ask God for a stronger faith for this New Year. Figure out those things that you lack in your character or need improvement. Once you figure a few out ask for growth in these areas. Let your prayers be active! If you know of someone who can help you, then ask God for the courage to ask for that help you need.
When I was very young my family met a man who had been everywhere, seen everythig and knew more about everything than anyone else. Although he experienced success at various levels he never reached his potential. In the process he lost his family and friends; he ended up dying alone. Choose the way of life and always remain teachable. Our God created the universe, and He is a many faceted God. He sent the Holy Spirit to teach you how to live the more abundant life until it overflows!
Teach me, O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end. Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight. Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word. Fulfill your promise to your servant, so that you may be feared. Take away the disgrace I dread, for your laws are good. How I long for your precepts! Preserve my life in your righteousness. Amen.
Scripture Reading: Psalm 119:33-40
The daily prayer is written by Germaine Copeland, author of the Prayers That Avail Much family book series.
