21 DAYS OF PRAYER

A COMPANION TO THE "A BETTER STORY" MESSAGE SERIES

DAY FIFTEEN

WATCHFUL AND THANKFUL

Zacchaeus’s story in Luke 19 happens because Jesus notices him.

God is going to do some amazing things through you and your friends this year. Many people you are already connected with are yearning for a relationship with the Lord, as are many others who you’ve never met.

Today as you pray through Colossians 4:2–4, ask that God will give you an eye to see the Zacchaeuses in your life.

PRAYER

Lord of all creation, open my eyes. Who are the people I encounter in my life, yet overlook? Show me the ones to whom you are calling, but are waiting for some acknowledgment or an invitation. Keep making me into the humble servant I want to be. I repent of the times I’ve tried to shape your kingdom after my desires or fill your church with the people I’d like to be around.  Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
