Prayer Encouragement - 10th May 2021
This week we encourage you to step back from the noise and business of life and listen humbly and quietly for the Lord's guidance.
1 Kings 19: 11-13 says this:
The Lord said, 'Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.' Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. After the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, 'What are you doing here, Elijah?'
Guide us Lord into your presence and help us not to be engulfed or go after the things that you are not in. Help us persevere in prayer and seek your face until we hear your voice. We want to go deeper into your presence and hear you more clearly. We don't want to become distracted and miss what you are saying, Lord. Help us to walk in obedience so that we are in the right place at the right time. Thank you for the gifts of discernment and prophecy and that you have poured out your Spirit on all flesh. So help us this week to be revived in prayer, and worship in thanksgiving to who you are Lord, as we seek your gentle whisper.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
