Wednesday 3/6 Day 1
Thursday 3/7, Day 2
Friday 3/8, Day 3
Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
Psalm 103:12 “as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.“
Prayer is not a monologue. Prayer is a dialogue. Have you heard from God about your circle? Jeremiah 1:4 says…“the word of the Lord came to me.” God communicates with us through the scriptures. But also, in my experience like Jeremiah, His word comes to me.
If you struggle to hear His still small voice, make sure you have no unconfessed sin. Sin hardens our heart because we close ourself off from the conviction of the Holy Spirit. Sin creates relational distance. Without giving it much thought we hide. When we hide, our prayers are powerless.
Psalm 51:10 is a prayer written by David after he sinned with Bathsheba. Create in me…. I love that. David is praying to His creator to CREATE a pure heart. (Some versions say clean heart.) Think about the word create. Ian creates a painting. He starts from scratch. David is asking God to start from scratch. Sin makes a mess of things. But God creates something new and our steadfast spirit is renewed.
As you pray Psalm 51:10, ask God to clear the lines of communication. Perhaps he will reveal some unfinished business. Ask for his forgiveness today. It is that simple. And when you do, take confidence that He not only forgives, He forgets. Clean slate. Do-over.
The instant you do, your prayers are POWERFUL. Listen for His voice.
Saturday 3/9, Day 4
- 1. Pray, and ask the Holy Spirit to invade your heart and remind you THIS day how much God loves you, NO MATTER WHAT. And then believe what you just prayed WILL happen.
- 2. Google this… “scriptures about how much God loves me” Read every one out loud and insert your name where you can.
- 3. Review my valentines day blog article, You have always been mine, Jesus The Bible is God’s love letter to you and to me.
- 4. Take a small piece of duck tape and tape in on your wrist, so you’ll see it often. Every time you see it, be reminded that His love surpasses knowledge.
