P.R.A.Y.E.R. Journal for June 2, 2024 "Is Normal Your Goal?" Psalm 139:1-6, 13-18




The message this week was inspired by Larry Price who gave a message at the National Association of Conference Presidents of the United Methodist Men in March of 2017.

Pray:

God I am blessed, let me be a blessing.  God, you have given me many gifts, help me to share them with others and not hold on to them as my own personal treasures.  Help me use my gifts to serve others to make a difference and add souls to your kingdom.  Help me to let go of normal and BE RADICAL for your GLORY and HONOR.  In Jesus name, Amen. 

Read: Psalm 139:1-6, 13-18

Apply:

When was the last time you shared anything about Christ outside your little comfort zone?  Do we have a one minute “Elevator Speech” ready just in case an opportunity comes up?  Would we recognize it when it does?  Questions like:  Why do you go to church? Why do you pray? Normal would say “just because” whereas when we rely on the Holy Spirit we become energized and are led to share Words given to us by God to share that will make an impact in that person’s life.  Matthew 10:19 tell us, “Do not worry about what to say or how to say it.  At that time, you will be given what to say”. 

 

Yield:

What are the graces, gifts, and talents that God has blessed you with, and how can you use them to fulfill God’s plan for your life? In Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. 

 

Engage:

Write down one goal for this week to share with another person that is outside your comfort zone and take one step toward achieving that goal.  You are never too old to set a new goal or to dream a new dream (C.S. Lewis)

 

Remember:                                                                                       

Remember who created you and who you are and praise God.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful; I know that full well (Psalm 139:13&14).
