HEAR // Sometimes when you pray it can feel like no one is listening, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. God always hears you. He hears our every prayer, every thought, and every word. Always. As you go through your day today, remember that God’s listening and is eager to hear your thoughts and prayers.
PRAY // Prayer should be our first response to anxiety. If we worry about something, we should find the time to pray about it. God is eager to hear from us, so don’t hesitate to bring to God whatever it is that’s weighing on you. Pray honestly today and ask God to fill your needs—whatever they may be. He is always listening.
LIVE // Sometimes prayer can seem like a huge and daunting task. “How do I start?” “What should I say?” These questions cloud our minds so much that sometimes we completely opt out of praying altogether. Well, in Matthew 6, Jesus outlines the exact way we should pray. He starts by saying we should address God as “Our Father.” The point here is that we are sons and daughters who can address God the same way a child addresses his or her father. As you go about your day today, remember that God views you as one of His children and He is eager to hear from you.
TALK // It can be mind-blowing to think that the same God who made everything around us also took the time to make you. He formed you with His hands and took great care to create you in His image. But God didn’t just make you with care in His image—He made the people around you, too. Today, text a friend and remind them how awesome they are, just because God made them.
LIVE // While God created everything on heaven and earth, humans are the only ones made in His image. But what does that mean for us? It means we are to live as image-bearers of the One who created us. Everything we think, say, and do should ultimately point to God. How can you reflect God’s image in your life today?
