53. Take a ‘Prayer Journey’ through Scripture. Go through Luke, Acts, or Nehemiah and stop every time it says they prayed. Contemplate why they stopped at that moment to pray. Consider their prayers if they are recorded, is there a theme, or common thread? What can you learn from their fervency and consistency?
54. Have you asked God to make you into a “Prayer Warrior”? Invite him to teach you how to pray! This is probably the best, most important thing you can do in your prayer life.
55. Are you married? Pray with your spouse at least once a week.
56. Are you a parent? Pray for your kids everyday. Even if you don;t have children there are probably kids in your life that you can pray for. (nieces & nephews, church kids, godchildren, neighborhood kids, etc.)
57. If you are a parent, pray with your child after there has been correction (1 John 1.9)
58. Fast. Fast a meal, a day, a week, a month, or something you use or eat everyday (eg. coffee, tv, texting). During the time you would be eating or doing that activity pray instead. Fasting can be VERY powerful.(Read Isaiah 58.6-14)
59. Pray through Ephesians 6.10-20. Prayerfully consider how you can put God’s armor on each day. Make one or more of these pieces as a symbolic act of consciously acting upon what you learn from this prayer experience.
60. Use scripture to fight this spiritual war in prayer. Here are a few you can start with: Nehemiah 4.13-20; Psalm 8.2; Isaiah 54.17; Matthew 16.23; 2 Corinthians 10.4; 1 Peter 5.7-9.
61. Pray through the news. Get a newspaper and cut out stories of things and people you will pray for. Pray during and after watching the evening news. What better way is there to take all that negativity to God and see his hand at work.
