PRAYER FOR WHAT TO DO – WHEN
There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven – A time to give birth and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot what is planted. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to embrace, and a time to shun embracing. A time to be silent and a time to speak. A time for war, and a time for peace. Ecclesiastes 3:1-9 (assorted verses)
Time ~ Destined, to make ready.
I come humbly to You asking for direction today. Today is a new day. The things that you kept me from doing yesterday might be Your will today. You have destined me to take action where, before, You did not. You have released me to move where, before, I was standing still. Show me where. Show me how
Am I to give birth to a dream, an idea You planted in my spirit? Or has the dream run its course? Has its effectiveness passed?
Where should I plant the Word strategically by using my mouth? What should I tear down by speaking Your Word – to bring something unholy to ashes? Show me how use the Sword of Your Word to sever.
Where should I admonish so another may gain wisdom? Is it time to wound another so that You may heal?
Is today the day to speak where I have been silent? Until now, You have put a check on my mouth but everything is for a season. Are you releasing me speak Your words? Only Your Words, Lord Jesus.
My heart embraces easily, sometimes too easily. Have I have embraced indiscriminately and now it’s time to shun embracing? Are there unholy soul ties that need to be severed?
You are so uncomfortable when I make peace where there should be war. And how you grieve when I make war in the church when there should be peace. Show me what is appropriate for this season. You made war – and You made peace. I need to follow Your lead while You were on earth and never stop praying.
For the season of ‘today’, I listen to only You. My mouth is Yours. My energy is Yours. My mind is bound to Yours. Order my steps and give me courage for hard obedience. I stop now to be silent and listen for Your answers. Amen
