Have you ever been in a situation and you did not know what to do? Or, what to say? Or, what stream of action you should take? The days are filled with experiences that we often wish we were more ready to face. Good events happen as much as bad events, but knowing how to respond is not always easy. Like me, you may have questioned yourself, too. Does the situation need words of wisdom, words of comfort or should I just keep quiet or walk away?
When we don't know what to do or say in situations, our posture is prayer. Prayer prepares us with revelations and insights imbued by the Holy Spirit so that when life happens, we know how to respond.
Jeremiah 42:3 (GNB) reads, "Pray that the Lord our God will show us the way we should go and what we should do.”
When we pray, the Holy Spirit shows us the way we should go.
When we pray, the Holy Spirit shows us what we should do.
As we pray and seek God for the way we should go and what we should do, the Holy Spirit reveals to us what we should say.
You see, prayer equips us to face the day with confidence.
Prayer empowers our faith to be stronger.
Prayer enables us to have answers to the events of the day.
When you pray, you will not be clueless in how to respond. You'll be a light to the world because you received light when you prepared through prayer.
Dear Heavenly Father,
As I enter this day through the blood of Jesus Christ, I seek your face for peace, confidence, insights, and revelations to be a beacon of light to this world.
Show me the way that I should go. Order my steps by your word so that my confidence remains strong.
Reveal to me how to solve difficult problems. Give me solutions in times of uncertainty so that this generation will be blessed and you will be glorified.
And when I speak, Lord, let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer, (Psalm 19:14) in the name of Jesus, amen.
