How Can We Be On Fire for God?

by Janis Cox


Last week I wrote about why we pray. I came to the conclusion that the best reason for prayer was to build a relationship with God.

Now a reminder – God does want to hear from us. So make your requests known to Him. As you spend time with God your requests and His desires will move you closer together.

“I take pleasure in hearing your prayers. So feel free to bring Me all your requests” (Jesus Calling March 23).

And the God of abundance will answer you with even more than you ask.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20, NIV).

I think that is really awesome – that we can continue to pray and expect great answers.

The more you pray, the more answers you
can receive (Jesus Calling).
Tweet this.

So this week my request is based on the song Light The Fire Again by Brian Doerksen.

Don’t let our love grow cold
I’m calling out
Light the fire again
Don’t let our vision die
I’m calling out
Light the fire again
You know our hearts, my deeds
I’m calling out
Light the fire again
I need Your discipline
I’m calling out
Light the fire again
I am here to buy gold
Refined in the fire
Naked and poor
Wretched and blind I come
Clothe me in white
So I won’t be ashamed
Lord, light the fire again

More lyrics:

Let us be on fire in our conversations with others about our God. Let our words be many; let our hearts and souls reverberate in Heaven; Let this be a loud cry.


Father, you tell us in your Word to pray – to talk to you – at all times. Help us be a people of prayer. Draw us close to You. In Jesus’ name. AMEN.
