Thoughts of John

What is on my mind.

Twenty Days of Prayer: Day 16

Scripture

Acts 1.8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.

Questions for Reflection:

Have you made a prayer list of people you consistently encounter in your daily course of life? Do you pray for them on a regular basis? Do you seek to show them special kindness? Do you witness to them about Christ?

Scripture

Ephesians 4.8 Therefore it says, “When he ascended on high he led a host of captives, and he gave gifts to men.

God has given spiritual gifts to every believer and your gifts are to be used consistently in the body of Christ. God calls every believer to serve Him and abound in His work.

Questions for Reflection:

Do you continually look for ways to serve God or are you content to sit and be served? Do you make excuses why you cannot serve God through the church? Do you refuse to serve unless it is a high profile job? Have you been willing for everyone else to do the work while you remain a spectator and receive the ministry of others? Are you lazy and irresponsible in the jobs you have taken? Have you failed to exercise your gift with all diligence?

  1. I like the idea of journaling through a 20-day prayer experience.
