Investing in Prayer
By: Rick Boxx
August 15, 2013

Integrity Resource Center co-hosted a prayer retreat years ago. I invited the CEO of a large organization to join us.

Due to his busy schedule my CEO friend didn’t arrive until late in the morning. He arrived just before a presentation was made about a prayer model labeled “SOAP.”

SOAP is an acronym that stands for Scripture, Observation, Action, and Prayer. You begin by writing out a brief passage of Scripture.

You then write down your observations about that passage. Next you determine an action you’re going to take, and finally you pray.

Colossians 4:2 teaches, “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.”

My friend later shared that the SOAP method revolutionized his prayer life. Investing in prayer became a profitable workplace investment. I encourage you to do likewise!
