Gordon’s Blog: Dangerous Prayer

Gordon’s Blog: Dangerous Prayer

Bill Hybels wrote on article on prayer that will change our prayer life, our relationship to God, and our outlook on life.  Some of his thoughts might seem a little “radical” to our thinking, but remember:  “’For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,’ declares the Lord.” (Isaiah 55:8)

 

The title of the article is “Five Dangerous Ways of Praying” and he used five words that precede “ME” to guide our prayers:

 

SEARCH Me—Psalm 139:23, 24

Let the Lord examine our lives!

BREAK Me—Psalm 34:18

What areas might His examination expose that might break us?

STRETCH Me—Acts 4:29

Let the Lord use situations to help us grow spiritually.

LEAD Me—I Cor. 6:19, 20; Psalm 5:8

It can be risky to surrender our lives to the Lord.

USE Me—James 2:14-26

Be available to the Lord.

 

Pick one of these areas and pray to the Lord just as Jesus did—“Not my will but yours be done.”

(Luke 22:42b)
