Start with Praise

A woman prays in the morning

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”—Jeremiah 31:3 (NIV)

Try this powerful prayer technique: Begin your prayer time with praise. Praise God for His glory and mercy and His ability to redeem every situation and convert challenges into positive growth. Then confess your wrongdoings and bring your requests to Him.

Today's Prayer:

Merciful God, thank You for giving me so many reasons to praise You.
