Tuesday, June 19: 2 Kings 10-12, 2 Thessalonians 3 ~ Danae

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 2 Kings 10-12, 2 Thessalonians 3

3a Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we ask you to pray for us.

Why is it so hard for us to ...

1-recognize the importance/power of prayer

2-ask for it

Why is prayer our last resource rather than our first response? Why do we do everything in our own strength & getting to the point of being completely overwhelmed & exhausted before giving it to God. Do we really understand the importance of prayer & the power it brings that is available to us? Do we understand how God wants to be not just a part of our life but our everything?  Only by seeking him daily & giving everything (the big, the small, the easy, the hard, the life changing & the day to day) will we have the opportunity to see him actively working in our lives.

Why are we too proud to ask our friends, family & other fellow Christian’s to pray for us? Why can’t we feel free to share our hurts, concerns, & even failures/struggles knowing that we are no more imperfect than the person next to us? “Where 2 or 3 are gathered”...imagine the power behind a few Christian’s lifting you up before God.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: 2 Chronicles 22-24, 1 Timothy 1
