THE PRAYER I.O.U.S.

 

Let me share with you a way of praying daily that I have learned from John Piper that has been of incredible value to me. Each day when you wake up pray these 4 short little prayers from scripture and it will put your heart in the right place before God for him to move in you. The acronym is easy to remember and always reminds you that we owe everything we have to the Lord. This is a perfect way for students to foster a habit of prayer in their life. Take it, adapt it, and share it with your students and always remind them that you are praying for them every day!


I. - Incline my heart to your testimonies. (Psalm 119:36)
Let my heart be set on what you have done and are doing in my life. Don't let me be tempted by selfish gain, but help me to seek you first above all things today.


O. - Open my eyes, that I may see wonderful things from your Word. (Psalm 119:18)
Help me to spend time in your word today and open my mind throughout the day to remind me of great truths from your scripture. Allow it to be the lamp that lights the way for me to walk intimately with you.


U. - Unite my heart to fear Your name. (Psalm 86:11)
Help my heart to not be divided and my life to not be compartmentalized. I desire for my entire heart and body and life to follow after you in every word, action, and situation I am in.


S. - Satisfy me in the morning with Your love. (Psalm 90:14)
May you be all that I need. Help me to find my satisfaction only in you and not seek after money, possessions, relationships, or any other thing to find worth and fulfillment. Thank you for your incredible for me.



In Jesus Name... Amen
