21 Days of Prayer: Day 21 – Contentment

Categories: Principles,Stories

Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
– Philippians 4:11-13 (NKJV)
Godly contentment is a righteous satisfaction that belongs to the believer. As you have consecrated yourself over the past 21 days, you have allowed the Lord to reveal to you His plan and purpose for your life. God has promised to satisfy your mouth with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s (Psalm 103:5). His desire is always to bless you more than you will ever want to be blessed.
Contentment is a result of open and honest fellowship with the Lord to remind yourself how much He loves you. An awareness of God’s love will produce a rest and revitalization in your life. As well as build confidence that no matter what transpires around you, God is with you and will never fail you.

Thought for the Day:

Your Needs (Be Specific) and Thanksgiving for All that was Prayed

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

Philippians 4:6 (NKJV)


We are using daily prayer targets as a way to encourage our families to pray for their children each day during 21 Days of Prayer:
Now godliness with contentment is great gain. – I Timothy 6:6 (NKJV)
  • Contentment – Heavenly Father, I pray that you help my child fight the urge to compare and complain.  Instead, reveal the secret of being content no matter what situation they find themselves in. In the Name of Jesus, Amen!
