It’s Called Bold Prayer
“God so here you have me”… corner of the breakfast area – in a hotel- before work-asking for a BIG BOLD PRAYER REQUEST.
That’s where I am at.
Prayer can happen anywhere, at any time and for and reason. That’s part of its beauty. It can be filled with sparkle or tears, either way you give it; it doesn’t matter to Him.
I’ve been reading a devotional that is about praying for an elephant. Each day it brings me to tears and further confirms my heart.
It’s what I like to call a God Check.
This year is my year to be bold in pursuits and lean in on my Lord and Savior even more than I have in the past. As in… THE MOST I HAVE EVER DONE IN 34 YEARS.
I want to live the absolute best life going forward but in order to do so I know it will require a few things in order:
I intentionally did not list my faith because I don’t have to.
God didn’t ask me to be perfect, He asks me to come to Him as I am.
So chipped,withered and all I am keeping Him off my list because He is going to walk beside me.
That’s faith works.
The knowing that this journey may shift and change things on my “to work on” list but He won’t leave me.
So I am praying for my elephant this year. I’m scared beyond measure – I cry each time I pray about it. But I know it’s time so I am going to obey the conviction in my heart.
God asks us to pray boldly so He can show us His works.
I’ve never been shy to pray boldly for others – but I’ve never laid something at His feet that I love as much as my own life.
That’s what I keep feeling I’m being asked to do.
So here are to the bold prayers we need to send to heaven to be answered.
