To pray big, you need a 4th quarter mentality.
You need to keep the goal in mind and recognize that the end is near. Yes, I am depleted of strength and all banged up, but I must “suck it up.”
Keep pushing forward. Never give up.
The problem is that some days, I don’t even want to put on the uniform. I don’t want to walk out on to the field and execute what’s written in the playbook. I’d rather be on the couch painting my nails.
I don’t like hard things.
Not to mention, it’s incredibly hard to get enthusiastic when you keep getting pushed back every time you step on to the gridiron.
I guess you’ve got to trudge on through the gore to truly appreciate the glory.
Here’s the thing — I’ve got a winning quarterback. His mighty arm never gets tired. He runs on to the field waving a victory banner over my life every time.
Even if my scoreboard reads zero at this moment, the clock is not going to run out before my comeback.
I’m on the conquering team. There is no doubt about it.
Nothing is too hard for my God. He’ll flatten the opposition every time.
Are you tired of the fight today? Put on your helmet and pray a simple prayer:
Lord, give me help for the hard task.
Let’s Talk: Have you pressed through the gore to experience the glory? How did God help you keep pressing forward even though it was hard?
This year, my desire is to lift up holy hands and “Pray Big.” Want to join me? I’ve created a private “Pray Big” Facebook group for like-minded sisters to share their stories and surrender each one to our mountain-moving God in prayer. Let’s cry out to God together.
