CONCEPT (Day 1 of 7)
This week, let’s spend some time learning about prayer and working it into our lives and marriages (I figure spouses are a part of “all people”).
… I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people … 1 Timothy 2:1 ESV
Let’s begin by spending time just thinking about this scripture and the concept of prayer. Here are a few dictionary definitions to help us along.
supplication: the action of asking or begging for something earnestly or humbly
prayer: a solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God
intercession: the action of intervening on behalf of another.
thanksgiving: the expression of gratitude, especially to God.
Park this in your head for today and ask God to teach you about prayer. If you have the time, look up a few other scriptures about prayer and add them to your considerations.
