Lord Teach Me To Pray: Day 25

July 27, 2009

"To pray, therefore, effectually in His name means realizing our standing in Christ, our union with Him, and seeking His glory." Arno C. Gaebelein.

James 4:1-3 What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you? You want something but don't get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

Can we truly be united with Christ if we seek our own desires over what God's will is?

Father, You will stays the same and never changes but our desires quickly fade like the grass in the fields. Show us our motives and change our hearts! In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
