Prayer: Embrace the Kingdom and Love God Daily

Romans 12:12

“Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.” 

Prayer is a central feature of our lives as Christians. It should be woven into the fabric of our morning routine, our weekly schedule. Prayer is our opportunity to interact with the Creator of the universe. As we align our heart with his, we start seeing this world the way he does. Once we see this world the way God does we are naturally led to participate in his work of bringing redemption to earth and building his Kingdom in the world. As we spend time with God our heart starts to beat in time with his heart for his world and this will lead us into intercession, lament, repentance, and joy.

Suggested Habits

  • Download an app on your phone to help daily prayer, such as The Daily Office from Mission St. Clare or Common Worship.

  • Pray morning prayer from The Book of Common Prayer.

  • Write out the Collect for the Day and stick it to your mirror; pray it as you brush your teeth each morning.

  • Start a journal of your prayers for other people and the world around you. Keep a list of the people you are praying for each day.
