Dear Ones,
Hope you are enjoying this day. We are getting rain here but not snow.Emoji This morning I did food prep, went to Aldi’s and exercise class. This afternoon I have crafts and Al and I have an appointment after that. No time to get in trouble! 
Devotions from Judy’s heart
Pray, Pray, Pray! There are so many ways to pray and it’s wonderful that we can find the way that reflects our own personality or what we may experiencing at the moment. There is not one way to pray but many ways. The Lord loves diversity!
Recently I read what Dr. Brian and Candice Simmons had to say about prayer as they quoted Ephesians 6:18 (TPT), “Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all believers.” Every form of prayer leaves the door wide open to pray in whatever way that we feel impressed to call on Him. Sometimes it may just be silently and other times we might literally shout. There are so many prayer models in the Bible and we may use several throughout the day.
The Simmons mentioned praise and thank you prayer model that is like the password allowing us access to heaven. I think we find as we start praising him, we sense we are right in His presence. We might move on to asking in prayer and give the Lord requests we have. Often, we intercede and plead before God in behalf of others. Or we may have devotional prayer when we are alone with the Lord and pouring out our heart to Him. There is also corporate prayer when we connect with others in prayer like as a family, or church body. But it’s important to pray consistently and in in faith and right motives. It is likely that we are using all of these forms of prayer and more throughout our day.
Then Simmons closed with the following prayer: “Lord Jesus, I want You to become my  prayer life. I want You to empower me and set me apart for You today. I come with my heart before You. I long to be one with You in prayer and to reflect Your glory on earth. I trust in You, and I trust the Holy Spirit to pray through me today. I will walk in the Spirit and I will pray in the Spirit. My life will be Your love offering today. I pray in Jesus name. Amen.”
Challenge for today: Pray the prayer above and also pray throughout your day as led by the Spirit.
Blessings on your day and prayers and love, Judy
