21 Days Of Prayer | Day 4 - West Ridge Church

Prayer Guide: Day 4

Now without faith, it is impossible to please God since the one who draws near to him must believe
that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” – Hebrews 11:6 

Much of the depth and richness of our spiritual lives hinge upon the attitude and posture with which we draw near to God. When we approach Him, we must have the confidence and assurance that He is real, He hears, and He cares. God does not want us to draw near begrudgingly out of duty or obligation but with a sincere and genuine desire to be with Him and know Him.

According the author of Hebrews, faith is “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). However, faith is not something we produce or work up—it is a response to who God is and what He has done. We are able to draw near to God in faith, not because of our own strength or behavior, but because of Jesus and what He’s done for us at the cross. Let’s approach God’s throne with confidence knowing that He embraces us and rewards those who seek Him.

 Personal Prayer Focus:

Because of Jesus, God’s presence is safe for us to bring anything into. No matter what we may be thinking or feeling today, He is not only big enough to handle it but so good that He actually wants to. Maybe the greatest way to honor God and exercise faith today is by drawing near and giving Him everything on your heart trusting that He’s real, He hears, and He cares. Let’s do that now.

West Ridge Church Prayer Focus:

We are a family made up of many members. All that God has done throughout the years at West Ridge Church would not have been possible without the hard work and prayers of all who have led and served here. Equally, all that we are praying and asking God to do now and in the future will not be possible without the hard work and prayers of “Team West Ridge”. We want to spend time simply thanking God for our team members and asking Him to continue blessing and multiplying our efforts in the days ahead.
