Prayer J.A.R. Day 5

Posted on

Yesterday’s prayer J.A.R. challenge was to praise God for who He is and what He has done. 

This was interesting because it went deeper than just thanking Him for things that went well during my day. It was quite an experience to think about who He is, and praise Him by all of the names that describe His character: Rock, Provider, Merciful One, Lover of My Soul. 

When I got to the “what He has done” part, I didn’t think just about the things He has done for me recently, but also the things He has done for me since the beginning of time. Creating me, sending His Son to die for my sins, forgiving me, loving me unconditionally, blessing me when I don’t deserve it. 

I started thinking about all the little things He does for me everyday. As an example, I thought about if I was crossing the steeet and didn’t see a car coming, but God intervened and got the driver’s attention so they saw me and stopped. I would probably never know that even happened, but God was there, watching over me. 

There’s a quote (there always is, right?) about how God is always working in our lives. 

God is always doing 10,000 things in your life, and you may be aware of 3 of them. 

-John Piper

I find that so encouraging! Even when I feel like God isn’t doing anything, He is working behind-the-scenes to make everything work together for my good.
