Following on from my post yesterday regarding your daily prayer routine (http://thedistinctdot.blogspot.com/2009/08/daily-routine.html), I want to talk about “crisis prayer” today.

Do you know what a “crisis prayer” is? It is often one we make when we are at rock bottom, when we are desperate and feel we have nowhere else to turn.


The prayers we utter at a time of crisis are just as legitimate as any other prayer, and they can often bring fantastic results. However, we should not pray only when we are in crisis. In other words, our crisis prayers should be bourne out of our regular prayer life.

Nehemiah 2:4-5 (New Living Translation)
The king asked, “Well how can I help you?”. With a prayer to the God of heaven, I replied”.

To be able to pray in a crisis, we must be in the habit of talking to God even when there’s no crisis.

God alone will help us whenever we instinctively turn to Him, so make praying to God your routine, not just a reaction during a crisis.

Child of God

Nehemiah 8:10 NIV
Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is sacred to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”

I am a child of God, His treasured possession. He created me in His own image. He chose the day on which I was born. He has a plan and a purpose for my life.

I believe these words – Do you believe them about yourself?

Whether you believe these words or not, God did create you in His own image and He has planned out your life for you. So do something for God in return, listen to Him, tell others about Him and live your life in His service.

God will give you the strength to do all He asks of you, so don’t worry about anything.
