It's not another day...

Today is not just another ordinary day!  Today is a day God made and ordained to be unique and different, our responsibility is to live and pray like it matters

Read the following verses and stop and think about they say to us as Christ followers.

Colossians 1:16
16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.

Ephesians 2:4-10
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
The question is how do we really know what God wants from us each and every day?
ASK!

Steve Gaines writes in his book Pray like it Matters the following; No one ever prayed like Jesus.  When it comes to prayer, he truly is the “expert”.  Reading the Gospels reveals how important prayer was to our Lord.  You can transform your prayer life by studying Jesus’ life and following His example in prayer.



Read the verses below and reflect on the importance:

Mark 1:35 
35 And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.

Luke 5:16
We can never fully learn how to do God’s work until we learn how to pray.
