Just imagine how different your life would be if, moment by moment, you were constantly OPEN to God. Think of how much your experience of yourself, others and the world would change if you were continuously attuned to the loving presence of God, and if you allowed the life of God to flow into and through you with each breath. Sounds like prayer, doesn't it?
As we transition into the second half of August, my hope and heart is for a greater openess to God through prayer. Would you join Gateway, during the next two weeks, as we focus our attention and intimacy on Jesus? Four ways to start your prayers:
1) Oh, God, I adore You and praise You for who You are. You are amazing and awesome at ___________? (Adoration)
2) Father, I confess/repent/apologize and come clean for my sin __________? (Confession)
3) Wow, Almighty God, You are so good, and I thank you for _____________? (Thanksgiving)
4) Jesus, with so many needs in my life, I'm asking for your assistance with ___________? (Supplication)
Open to God
