FRIDAY, APRIL 12
Scripture to Read: Luke 11:1-13
Toward the end of Jesus’ life on earth, one of His disciples asked Him to teach them to pray. Jesus taught them to pray this model prayer and to pray with faith and persistence. But He also wanted them to consider what to pray for and focused their attention on the asking for the Holy Spirit. As regenerated, born-again believers, the Holy Spirit dwells in us. But we also need to be aware of and asking for the Holy Spirit’s work in our lives.
Father, we’ll pray as Jesus taught us to pray. We also need the Holy Spirit to fill us - to overflow us with His presence and power in our lives. Produce the fruit of the Spirit in us and use the gifts of the Spirit in our lives to build up the body of Christ.
