Pete Grieg: P.R.A.Y.

“Remember to P.R.A.Y.! More than anything else, this simple acronym is the thing that will help you grow in prayer. ‘Pause’. Try to ‘be still and know’ God (Ps. 46:10). ‘Rejoice … always’ (Phil. 4:4). Your Father in heaven loves you, knows you, and interprets your heart perfectly. Give him thanks! ‘ Ask and it will be given to you’ (Matt. 7:7). Ask the Father for everything from peace in the Middle East to parking spaces. ‘Yield’. Offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness’ (Rom. 6:13). Wait and trust for the light and hope to come.”
