40 DITW [ Days in the Word – Day # 18]

PROBE IT! We must forgive to be forgiven. Mark 11:25 [NLT] But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.

Note: You might not be able to answer every S.P.A.C.E.P.E.T.S. question. Don’t force it. If you can’t think of an answer, just move on.

S.P.A.C.E.P.E.T.S.

S – Is there a SIN to confess?

P – Is there a PROMISE to claim?

A – Is there an ATTITUDE to chance?

C – Is there a COMMAND to obey?

E – Is there an EXAMPLE to follow?

P – Is there a PRAYER to pray?

E – Is there an ERROR to avoid?

T – Is there a TRUTH to obey?

S – Is there SOMETHING to praise God about?

SIN TO CONFESS:  My sin is in the “but when” – I just don’t have conversations with God enough. It’s like prayer is an after thought. You’d think that by now it my walk it would be a default.

PROMISE TO CLAIM:  The promise is in the “so that” – forgive to be forgiven

ATTITUDE TO CHANGE:  Pray more!

COMMAND TO OBEY:  Don’t hold a grudge

EXAMPLE TO FOLLOW:  Time spent: Pray!

PRAYER TO PRAY:  Holy Spirit help me recognize your presence throughout the day, teach me to pray. 

ERROR TO AVOID:  Holding a grudge

TRUTH TO OBEY:  Forgive

SOMETHING TO PRAISE GOD ABOUT: That He is there to hear my prayers.   

APPLY IT! How does this passage apply to your life and what will you do about it?

For me it’s a reminder to pray more often and a reminder to do so with a right attitude. Forgiving others, because I’ve been forgiven.

PRAYER

Father,

My prayer is that I’d pray more often, that I’d come to you throughout the day. I pray that I’d come with the right heart and a contrite spirit. My prayer is that we’d get beyond pillow talk.
