From Handbook to Prayer
“My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Neither are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8–9)
You are the Lord, the God of all mankind. Nothing is too difficult for You. (Jeremiah 32:27)
Pause to express your thoughts of praise and worship.
The heart is deceitful above all things
And incurably sick.
Who can understand it?
You, the Lord, search the heart
And test the mind
To reward a man according to his ways,
According to the fruit of his deeds. (Jeremiah 17:9–10)
Ask the Spirit to search your heart and reveal any areas of unconfessed sin. Acknowledge these to the Lord and thank Him for His forgiveness.
