Promise and Prayer – Day 29 (Tuesday, Week 5)

New Study Begins Tomorrow

Thanks to all of you for joining in with this prayer experiment. Thanks for your comments on the web page and for ways you have let the readers of know your progress as you have prayed.

Tomorrow’s topic is: “How Did I Become Dumber than an OX.” We will begin a study in the Book of Isaiah with this theme. I hope you will join me for this new study.

Jesus’ Promise

1 John 5.14 – And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.

Suggested Prayer

Grant to me, O Father, the ability to see infinite value and importance in everything that you have made.

Personal Reflection

Richard Foster has been a very influential Christian author for many. When he speaks about prayer, he talks about joggers and marathon runners. No one starts out in prayer as a marathon runner, but as a walker or a jogger.

Joggers become marathon runners by running. Prayer-joggers become prayer-marathon-runners by praying. As we pray and as we align our lives with the will of God, our confidence will grow. We will trust God with more of our lives and we will see his activity on a greater level.

Your Turn

As we end this prayer experiment, let’s strive to become prayer-marathon-runners. I pray that God helps us all to grow and to expand our lives and ministry through prayer.

May God richly bless you.


  1. Absolutely! My daughter runs marathons (and competes in Ironman events) and I see her dedication, training, sacrifices. My training to be a prayer-marathoner may not be as physically demanding, but I believe I receive more joy! If I spend as many hours a day praying as she does physically training, think what could be accomplished! May my desire be deep enough to be in a prayer-marathon for Jesus.
