1: Pray in the Light [What this Means]

Often times we complain about our jobs or about our lives and don't even realize we are complaining. It becomes easy to focus on the negative all the time, such as hating your job because you are not paid what you should be or aren't appreciated for what you do. These are things we should take to God in prayer.

Today in this Bold Steps Minute, Pastor Mark Jobe talks about not turning our prayers into complaining sessions with God and gives an example of "praying in the light."

Mark Jobe is president of Moody Bible Institute and Pastor of New Life Community Church in Chicago. Mark is the author of, What Now? How to Move into Your Next Season.
