“The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know.” (1 Timothy 2:1, MSG)
Today’s verse stopped me in my tracks. How about you? Paul wrote that the first thing he wants us to do is pray. Is prayer your first response or last resort?
All too often we are guilty of trying every fix imaginable before going to God in prayer. It’s unfortunate, but real. How would your life look if prayer was your first response as opposed to your last resort?
Make today the day where prayer is the very first thing you do. There will be all kinds demands for your time and energy, but make sure you keep first things first.
Prayer: Dear Lord, forgive me for the many times I make prayer a last resort as opposed to my first response. By the power of your Spirit, help me to turn to you always, so I keep first things first. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
