 31 Days of Prayer - in His Word 1-16-2024 

Sometimes when we pray we ask ourselves why we should bother. The thing is when we pray we should remember that God knows what we need, nothing is hidden, and so we should just trust that we are praying what we should. God knows our hearts and minds.

Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable. So then,  we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testing we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. Hebrews 4:13-16

In remembering that He is our gracious God who loves us and shows us mercy we should pray it anyway!

Heavenly Father, help us today to know where to go, what to do, and when to speak to someone. Give us discernment to know if the person we speak to is being honest and give us insight to know what to do to help them, in Jesus’ name, amen.
