We all know that prayer is important – it’s how we petition the Almighty God with our requests. And the sheer fact that He hears us, and wants to hear from us, is incredible.
If we really knew and understood just how incredible this is, we would be praying all of the time. Which is probably why Paul tells us to pray…all of the time.
So here are some of my favorite prayer Bible verses and quotes to get us inspired to pray! At the bottom of this post, you’ll find printable four memory verse cards on prayer. If you want to read a devotional on prayer, click here.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
This week’s fruit of the Spirit is patience. I gotta tell you that whenever I write a devotional, it seems like whatever I’m writing about becomes the battle for that week. I’m doing pretty well with keeping my anxiety in check until I write about peace. Or I’m feeling incredibly joyful…until I write about joy. And this week was no different with patience. I really had to battle this one out on multiple fronts.
Everything I write on this blog, I’m writing it to myself. This is an outlet of teaching and preaching to myself. It’s wonderful, and incredibly challenging. Just a reminder that we’re in this together, mamas.
I know we’re all probably going a little stir-crazy with the whole world on lockdown during this COVID pandemic, and I think it’s safe to say we could all use a little more patience. (And peace. Read more about peace here.)
