For example, I want to pray for victims of sex trafficking. My heart breaks for little girls sexually abused every day of their lives while I enjoy freedom and safety. My heart breaks…but I rarely remember to pray for them.
So I came up with an idea--a way to make prayer a habit in my life: Why not remind myself to pray by associating certain prayer needs with my daily activities:
- When I drink a glass of iced tea (I like iced tea), I’ll pray for those little girls, even if it's just a quick silent prayer at a restaurant.
- When I get in my car, I’ll pray for unborn babies.
- When I brush my teeth...well, you get the idea.
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
