Prayer: Day

Day 15


Join us today as we read Day 15 of the YouVersion Prayer plan, then come back here and let’s talk about what we’re learning!

  • Alva Burnett

    When we pray "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. I feel that we are praying for Jesus to come. Until His second coming that IS impossible. His second coming is near at hand.

  • Community is so important as we walk this journey. I hit a wall of sorts in terms of posting but still like checking in to see what everyone has been saying, which has inspired me to jump back in. Thanks everyone!

  • The Acts verse today really made me think about our small group and other believer friends that we surround ourselves with and know are "joined in" prayer on a daily basis. What a powerful and comfortable feeling!

  • I had some trouble figuring out how to apply the verses today, so the comments here really helped. lots to think about with what everyone has said.

  • All of Psalm 88 reminded me of what Maria mentioned yesterday. The psalmist did not understand why God was allowing the things in his life to happen. Just as we cannot understand why God allowed the shooting in Colorado to happen. But the psalmist never stop praying and seeking God, even in the midst of such struggle. We indeed should never stop seeking God and His presence. Regardless of whether we are praying alone or in a group, like in Acts.

    I too loved the verse ini Acts. It reminds me the power of women joinig together in prayer! I want to thank all of you who prayed for my sister-in-law yesterday. Through surgery and the grace of God, the doctors were able to control the brain bleeds. and now there is a possibility that the carotid artery will not have to have surgery. It is going to be a long painful process and she will have to have speech therapy, but she is going to be okay! PTL! Thanks again!

  • Hmmm. I like this verse in Acts. I’m not sure that it means so much to pray while physically together, but more to stay united while apart. To stay connected through prayer ‘constantly’ – as it says. I really like this verse. My husband and I often talk about the degree to which it is appropriate to pray physically together, in a group setting. Because Jesus says to go in your room and shut the door, otherwise basically you are praying so others will hear your words. Not that this is what this verse is about, but that it doesn’t negate His teaching to pray alone.

      I think the verse about going into your room and praying alone may be more figurative than literal. I think it's more about the heart – you can be sincere while praying in a group, it's just harder. I know that I have been immensely blessed in the past through being prayed for and praying for others in a group.

  • The verse from Psalms made me think about what I spend my morning thinking about – rushing around, working out, trying to prepare for the day ahead of me. Most days, I roll out of bed thinking, "Where are my running shoes?" or "I wish the cats hadn't kept me up all night." It's only when things settle down that I'm able to pray and talk to God.
    I need to make more of an effort to pray as soon as my alarm starts going off, even if it's just a quick, "Thank you God for this day."

  • Brittney

    Today the verse in Acts really struck me to remind me that we should be joining together to pray. Asking others how we can pray for them, asking them to pray for and with us. While prayer is a great way for intimacy with God, it can also be a great community experience when we all pray together.

    • Sarah

      I completely agree! I found today’s verses so relevant to the community we have here!

      • Mama Pea

        I loved the way these two verses worked together. There is power in the prayers of many hearts joined together, but that in no way takes away from the closeness we can feel with God one-on-one and the impact of those prayers we say in those moments.
