Today (Thursday, August 10th) I had a personal breakthrough. God really spoke to me this morning in my quiet time. I have been reading “Spiritual Leadership” by Oswald Sanders. I am in the chapter that talks about leaders and prayer. I was moved. The area of my personal life that has been the most needy has been my communication with my God. I feel like I have been going to Him just for needs and basic prayer stuff. Well this morning I was challenged by a statement Sanders makes….”God-given conviction leads us beyond the prayer of hope to the prayer of faith.” I want to pray in faith. The Bible says “without faith it is impossible to please God.” I want to please God.
