Prayer J.A.R. Day 3

Posted on

Today’s challenge was to pray for myself. I understand that sounds selfish, but it’s really not. See, I have trouble praying for myself. I feel like I don’t deserve to ask God for anything. After all, I’m a sinner who doesn’t deserve anything He does for me. 

The reason I made this a challenge is because I want to learn that it is not bad to pray for myself. I want to feel comfortable bringing my worries, requests, and feelings to him. I want to believe that He cares. 

Usually when I pray, I put myself last. I thank God, I confess my sins, I pray for others, and then I pray for myself. Since I do my biggest prayer at night, sometimes I fall asleep before I get to myself. 

Today was a great day to have this challenge because it was the first day of my semester. I had a lot to pray about! One of the biggest things is adjusting to school starting, and being in a different country where things are so much different than in America. Also, there are some things weighing on me emotionally, that it felt good to bring to God. 

There’s a quote that I really like that I often need to remind myself of. It goes like this:

God is not bothered by our constant coming and asking. The way to trouble God is not to come at all.

-D.L. Moody

Prayer J.A.R. Day 2

Posted on

I was going to post this yesterday, but I ended up not doing the challenge until I went to bed. 

Yesterday’s challenge was to pray for opportunities to share my faith. That was fitting because I started my semester today, which should give me plenty of opportunities to share my faith. 

I took it a step further, and asked God to help me to see the opportunities He gives me, and to give me the courage to start spiritual conversations. 

A lot of the friends I’ve made here claim to be Christians, but I intend to have conversations with them so I can discover what being a Christian means to them. Then I can tell them what it means to me. That’s another way to share my faith. 

This challenge reminded me of the importance of seeking out opportunities to share my faith. 

Pray, Prepare
