Pray First

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may
open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.”
Colossians 4 verses 2-3

I have been reflecting this past week how often do we “Pray First.”

In every situation, whether good or bad, lets try to pray before we act. Many times people act first and then want God to bail them out of that situation, but prayer should be our first response, not our last resort.
Understanding the necessity of prayer is not enough. In order for it to become a part of our life, it needs to become something we look forward to doing. I’m convinced most people don’t enjoy prayer because they have never been taught how to pray. That’s where this simple prayer journal can help. Using several prayer models out of the Bible and having some guides to make prayer more personal, this booklet is designed to bring joy into your time with God. When you discover the beauty of daily conversation with Him, you’ll experience the presence of God that will change your life.

Once you learn how to pray, prayer can become a part of everyday life. And then…
Before the day begins—
Before you go to bed—
Before you go to work or school—
Before you send that text—
Before you eat, drive or travel—
When bad things happen—
Before bad things happen—
In every situation—PRAY FIRST!

Prayer changes everything!
