Praying Bold Prayers (Written By: Joel Osteen)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE
“Then he touched   their eyes and said, ‘According to your faith will it be done to you’ ”
(Matthew 9:29, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
A recent study showed that   90% of people believe in the power of prayer. People typically pray over   their food, their kids, or they ask God for wisdom, strength and health. But   oftentimes, people pray what I call “get by” prayers. They pray, “God, help me   get by this year. God, help me endure this sickness. God, keep my child out   of trouble.” There’s nothing wrong with that, but don’t limit what God can   do. If you ask small, you’re going to receive small. But when you learn the   Word, your faith grows, your confidence grows, and you’ll learn to pray bold   prayers that honor God!

Instead of praying, “God,   help me pay my bills,” pray, “God, help me pay my bills and have plenty left   over so I can be a blessing to someone else.” Instead of praying, “God, keep   my child out of trouble,” pray, “God, let my child become a leader and   fulfill his destiny.” Instead of praying, “God, help me endure this   sickness,” pray a bold prayer, “Father, I want to thank You that I’m coming   through this sickness better off than I was before!” As you continue studying   His Word, your faith will grow. You will know Him more, and you’ll be   empowered by your union with Him to pray bold prayers and see those prayers   come to pass!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father God, today I   open my mind and heart to You. I receive Your Word which directs my steps and   builds my faith. Help me to hear Your voice clearly so that I can pray bold   prayers in line with Your will in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria   Osteen
