Do you want to pray a brave prayer?
This is a simple prayer today.
Praying brave prayers says less about you than it does your faith in God. You know your limitations. You also know that God can use ordinary people to change the world.
So you sign up, no matter what that looks like.
The thing is we can become super comfortable in our faith.
That’s why our revolutionary prayer is a cry for God to shake us up.
We are asking God to shake us up. Come join us. #ComeWithMe #13thdisciple http://ctt.ec/xOfR7+
Are you ready?
Your prayer might look very different from the one below, but this is what is simmering in this girl’s heart. If you don’t have words, just pray it with me.
Shake me up, Lord. You called me to live in faith. To believe in what you have said. To pray for others. To give “stuff” far less room in my heart than loving others tangibly. Shake up my dreams. Shake up my apathy. Shake up my pre-determined views of who you are, and what is possible through you. Shake up my excuses and shake up my self-imposed limitations. Shake up strongholds that I might not even know exists in my heart.
I give you total access, Holy Spirit. Make yourself at home in me and begin your work. In Jesus’ name I pray.
When you ask God to shake you up, it opens the door for his work in you. I don’t know what God will do with all these prayers, but I know that he searches for those who will pray them.
This is a prayer of surrender.
Write your prayer in your journal. Give him total access (one more time). Don’t try to make anything happen. Let God work in his timing. Just be open to whatever he desires to do in you.
