Read Today’s Daily Devotional by Pastor Joel Osteen ”God-Sized Prayers”
Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it.
How you pray determines what kind of life you live. If you only pray small, ordinary, get-by prayers, then you’ll live a small, ordinary, get-by life. But when you have the boldness to ask God for big things, when you pray God-sized prayers, you will see the greatness of God’s power. All through the Scripture we see this principle. Elijah prayed that it wouldn’t rain, and for three and a half years there was no rain. Joshua prayed for more daylight, and God stopped the sun. Elisha prayed for protection, and his enemies were blinded.
The common denominator is that they asked God to do the unthinkable. If you’re to reach your highest potential, you have to have this same boldness. One reason we don’t see God do great things is that we ask only for small things. There should be something you’re praying about and asking for that seems impossible, far out, something that you cannot achieve on your own. What God-sized prayer are you asking Him for today? Dare to ask.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You created me to live an abundant life, not a small life. Thank You for the challenge to pray God-sized prayers and to see the greatness of Your power. Help me to dare to ask big and to believe for what seems impossible. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
