Long-shot Prayers

“My favorite exploit in Joshua’s life doesn’t get nearly enough airtime, if you ask me. From every angle, the story—tucked away in Joshua 10—showcases the kind of audacity we’re after. And it all hinges on a preposterous prayer. In fact, when you first hear it, you might even feel like it’s insulting or irreverent. But as it turns out, our God isn’t intimidated by long-shot prayers.

As the chapter opens, we read that five opposing Amorite armies were planning to attack…
Joshua sized up the situation, summoned all his available courage, and delivered one of the most gloriously unorthodox prayers in the entire Bible:

O sun, stand still over Gibeon,
O moon, over the Valley of Aijalon. (verse 12)

Now can you see why I love this story? Joshua had the audacity to ask God to make the sun stop in the sky. To freeze time on behalf of his people.”

Excerpted from Sun Stand Still by Steven Furtick

Daily Reflection: What do you need to pray for boldly today?

Ready to Act

If you’re going to have the audacity to ask God for something, you’d better be ready to act. Audacious prayer must be tethered to practical obedience. Or else it’s not faith. It’s just wishful thinking and positive mental energy. No wonder so many of our prayers aren’t answered. We pray for a miracle, but we fail to make a move.

And most of the time, if you don’t move, God won’t move. That’s just the way he designed faith to work.

Which personal prayer do you need to be ready to act on? How can you prepare yourself to do that?
