DEVOTION: “When my life was fainting away, I remembered the Lord, and my prayer came to you, into your holy temple. Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love. But I with the voice of thanksgiving will sacrifice to you; what I have vowed I will pay. Salvation belongs to the Lord!” ~ Jonah 2:7-9, ESV.
CHALLENGE: The importance of prayer is undeniable. Most of us will admit this fact. But how many of us find it easy to pray? In chapter three of their new book, the Kendrick brothers remind us that “approaching a holy and sovereign God in prayer is something we should prize and never take for granted.” How often do we make prayer an “afterthought” or just a simple “add-on” to our daily routine? Do we prioritize communication with God high or low?
