What is prayer? Prayer is connecting with your Heavenly Father in an intimate relationship. Prayer is dialoguing with your “Daddy.” Prayer esteems Him. Prayer is surrendering to Papa God. Prayer is trusting in the Lord and His plan for you and those in your sphere of life. Prayer builds you up in your spirit resulting in faith and power. Prayer is using God’s methods and weapons against Satan, our enemy.
Who is God that we honor Him? He is our Creator. God created us to worship Him. When we honor (esteem, acknowledge) and glorify Him as our God, He makes Himself known to us. Honor the Lord by worshiping Him and surrendering to Him. “Be still and know that He is God (Psalm 46:10):
Lord, you are indomitable (strong, unconquerable, invincible) my strong tower, my rock, Savior, Lord, King, Master, God of all. There is no god like you, in heaven above or beneath the earth. You are my God and my Heavenly Father and I honor and worship you.
Why honor family and surrender self? We respect the temple of God as we pray for our families to reflect his glory and to see His glory in our lives and families’ lives. We respect the temple of God that He created by surrendering ourselves to the Lord and surrendering to His Lordship.
I pray that as we surrender to You, Lord, we will train our children to honor You. I pray that we surrender to your Lordship, respect the Temple of God, and reflect your glory as your temple of the Holy Spirit. I offer my body to you, Lord, as the temple of the Holy Spirit. Live in and through me today.
How may we honor others? Pray for those in your sphere of living to know Jesus Christ, to walk with Him, and hear His voice.
Practice praying a one sentence prayer to Honor God, Honor others, and surrender self:
Honor Family/Surrender self:
Set your sights on the realities of heaven (Colossians 3:1 NLT).
For we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord’s sight but also in the sight of man (2 Corinthians 8:21 ESV).
