Prayer Is First … by Jaxon Erickson

Today’s Passage – Ecclesiastes 9 – 12 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – click here to view the text from the Blue Letter Bible website)

(Second Milers also read – Luke 9 – 10Psalms 126 – 130Proverbs 27)

Read the “0727 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

“And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” (Matthew 21:22)

Matthew 21:22 talks about how if you believe God, He will answer your prayers. If it’s God’s will, He will give you an answer. It may not be what you are hoping for, but you can trust in God that He will always do what is right.

So keep praying for your family, your friends, your games (in the future), and school tests.

Love you guys. Be safe.

    Jaxon, you are so right! We should not stop praying until God give us that answer, even if it’s not the answer we are looking for. I am so proud of you Jaxon, you are a wonderful testimony and God is already using you at age 9. Love you more Jax!!

    This is awesome Jaxon! I wish I remembered to pray before all my test when I was in school. It seems silly to me now that I forgot. Praying should have been just as important as studying for a test. Thank you for sharing your words of wisdom and reminding us to pray first!
