ROOTED (Part 2) CORE VERSES
KINGDOM OF GOD
Remember, prayer is a conversation between you and your Heavenly Father. And God deeply desires for you to be specific, to be relentless, and to gain His "kingdom" point of view.
What do you need God's strength, guidance, wisdom, direction on? Be specific. Be relentless. Be passionate. Be eager to adjust to God's will.
Listen to what God is saying to you. Maybe "how" He is answering you might not be what you what you are asking for.
Seek a Kingdom point of view that will help guide you through the most difficult seasons of life.

Write down what you are specifically asking God to do. And then keep track of how God answers your prayers. Remember, God's timing is seldom your timing. And God's answers usually are different than what we are wanting, but His answers are always part of a much better purpose and plan.
Jesus shared a parable about a Persistent Widow - LUKE 18:1-8. What is God saying to you through this story?
Read David's prayer found in 1 CHRONICLES 29:10-13. Write your own version using the words & thoughts that God speaks into your heart and mind.
Do you find yourself praying a lot more when life crashes in? It is easy to fall into this trap, and how we pray in these difficult moments can leave you more disillusioned with God. That is why Jesus, over and over again, tried to help people to have a different point of view - to help shift their perspective. And as you do, how you pray will start to shift as well - no matter how difficult life becomes.
