21 DAYS OF PRAYER

A COMPANION TO THE "A BETTER STORY" MESSAGE SERIES

DAY TWO

PRAY WITH HUMILITY

On Sunday we were reminded of the time when Peter put his own version of how things should play out as more important than God’s. When it comes to sharing good news and bringing in God’s harvest, the Bible is chock full of surprising accounts and unlikely heroes.

First Corinthians 1:27 says, “God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.” Then, verse 30, “It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus.”

PRAYER

Lord, we know that you are the author of life. We trust in your plan and your wisdom. Help us to not let our desires interfere with our service to you. May we remember that our own entry into your kingdom is not based on any good deed we’ve done. We weren’t called because of our power, influence, wisdom or wealth. We were like sheep without a shepherd and you rescued us. Remind us of that good news. Change us so that we see the world as you see it.
