Pray for Yourself with Reckless Abandon
by Audra Jennings Wednesday, May 26, 2010
God’s prayer directive doesn’t end with prayers for others. Throughout his years in ministry, Davis has encountered an area where believers felt inadequate in their prayer lives—interceding for themselves. Faith Set Free: Pray for Yourself with Reckless Abandon addresses a far more personal side to prayer. He encourages believers to ask God for specific things such as a greater closeness with God, an obedience to God, a guard for the mouth, a generous spirit, a stronger faith, and a courage to follow God wherever He leads. As lives become submitted to God through prayer, then believers become aware of the Holy Spirit leading them into greater areas of service and prayer becomes a more effective means through which they can reach others for Christ.
“God has given us the keys to the kingdom,” Davis explains, “and it is the responsibility of the believer to make either wise or poor prayer choices. God’s sovereignty does indeed determine the overall outcome of every area of our lives, but He loves and requires our prayer participation, and often our requests go unanswered because believers simply under-ask.” Rather than fear God will not answer or will say no, believers should commit themselves to the systematic study of the Bible and then, using it as a prayer guide, begin to storm heaven’s gates with powerful, pinpoint prayers. Davis states that there is no such thing as an elite group of intercessors, nor is he an expert on prayer. He confidently tells readers, “When it comes to navigating through the storms of life, the Bible really does provide the best instruction and guidance. And when it comes to knowing how to pray for ourselves and others, the Bible really is the best prayer script.”
Every believer is equipped with the mustard-seed of faith that makes prayer possible. So quit holding your breath, believer, and start breathing your heart to God in prayer! You will live differently, love differently, and begin to learn what it means to pray without ceasing.
