The Culture Of Prayer

I believe you are not in haste to bump into the prayer for today’s section. There is something equally important that you must acknowledge.

It is about what we call the culture of prayer. This simply means you must treat prayer as your daily food for survival. It must be a custom that you perform every day. Meditate on the scriptures day and night as stated in Joshua 1:8.

Again, pray daily just like how the scriptures say Daniel used to pray 3 times a day.

“… Three times daily he was kneeling and offering prayers and thanks to his God just as he had been accustomed to do previously.” (Daniel 6:10).

Our Bible has also warned us to say daily prayers on every occasion:

“With all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints.” (Ephesians 6:18)

Selected Prayers For Today And On Every Occasion

Now get ready to read each prayer for today on daily basis. You may read on every single day. You can find different prayers cutting across different situations or activities we find ourselves doing.

It could be about your health, life, education, job, marriage, protection, etc. You can be selective about the ones that meet your current needs.

However, let the greater part of your prayers be thanksgiving unto the Lord. Be glad for showering his loving-kindness on you. Rejoice each day by being gifted with the gift of life.

“This is the day that the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalms 118:24)
