Amen means so be it, but how many times have you said the word amen without thought to its meaning? The word neatly closes up our prayers and then we are on to the next thing. I hope through this book study something about your prayer life has changed. Perhaps you linger a little longer, speak with more intention, or simply saw the value in being prepared with the various strategies. Whatever your take away, I pray you have been blessed and feel some sense of renewal to your prayer life.
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours. Mark 11:24
There have been times when I could not pray. I was in a bad place in my life. I would ask others to pray because I was certain God hated the way I was living my life. In fact, I feared He hated me, but you and I both know, God loves His children. I’m certain that fervent prayers brought me back into the fold. It’s fervent prayers that hold my life together now and keep me from unraveling at the seams.
Do you ever feel like you’d like to get away from it all? We all face our storms in life. Sometimes the storm is like a light rain and other times it’s like a hurricane with gale force winds. If you’ve taken time to write out your prayer strategies as covered in this book study, you will have a firm foundation for facing the storms. It may be smooth sailing and clear blue skies today, but it can change in a flash.
Let the church say, “Amen!”
I encourage you to get specific and intentional with your prayer life. Find a prayer partner who will keep you accountable. Do what works for you? Journal. Meditate. Ask with believing heart and let the church say, “Amen!”
