Praying with Eyes Wide Open
Have you ever experienced prayer blindness?
Fixated on circumstances
Paralyzed by fear
Distracted by everything else
Prayer blindness leads to prayer atrophy.
How should we then pray?
Pray to proclaim clearly.
Pray to act wisely.
Pray to make the most of every opportunity. How?
Pray your conversations are full of grace and salty
Why? So you will know how to answer everyone
The great prerequisite is love
Will you help ignite a prayer movement?
Pray 2 Chronicles 7:14 daily at 7:14 with eyes wide open!
