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

C.S. Lewis quote: Free Will

Posted on Updated on

This is one of my favorite quotes. It’s one of the few quotes that I actually have memorized. I think about this often: what free will is, and what its repercussions are, but why it’s ultimately necessary and even good.IMG_4796
