Daily Devotional: Pray Persistently
James 4:2 You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask.
Prayer Starter: God, remind me to bring my problems to you. I'm tired of living in my own strength I need Your guidance and Your direction. As I seek You daily, I will put my trust in You.

James 4:2 You long for something you don't have, so you commit murder. You are jealous for something you can't get, so you struggle and fight. You don't have because you don't ask.
