It does not envy, it does not burst. Once we ask Jesus into our lives, the Holy Spirit takes up residence within us. He tells us we are called to serve one another humbly; to love others like we love ourselves. He goes on to list the fruit that comes from living in step with God, one of which is love. Love is a loaded word.
Love is patient and kind. Do you see the connection between these two pieces of scripture? They weave together quite beautifully and leave us with a clear picture of what love and living in the Spirit really looks like. Gracious God, thank You for Your Word that describes so clearly what love is and for Your Son Jesus who humbly modeled it on earth for us.
Help my family and I to produce the Fruit of Your Spirit and love each other in a way that pleases You. May we always have a love that protects, trusts, hopes, and perseveres. The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Believe in and on the Lord Jesus Christ—that is, give yourself up to Him, take yourself out of your own keeping and entrust yourself into His keeping, and you will be saved. He was close to graduating from high school, but the past few months had taken a turn for the worse.
Andrew was a smart kid, but academics were not his forte. Andrew laughed about it on the outside, but grew more broken inside. Early in the school year, he began to use drugs and drink alcohol with his friends. He kept it a secret from his family; he thought they would not understand. In the dark, his addictions grew, moving to harder drugs. His family tried every method to get through to him.
They tried punishment, and Andrew would rebel more. They tried loving him in every way they could think of, and he rebelled more. His family was exhausted and confused. His family cannot explain it, nor can he really, but when things seemed most hopeless, God saved him. Andrew struggles to put it into words, but somehow, someway, he felt the love of God, and that altered the course of his life. It was almost as if a light when on inside him; the blinders were off. He was saved and delivered into the love of God. His family counts all of their failed attempts and gives God the glory for doing in Andrew what human beings could not.
Father, I pray for the hurting and lost of this world. Be their Rock, their Redeemer. Use me in effective ways to show Your love. Enter into the hearts of those far from You. Be their Savior; deliver them into a transforming relationship with You. I pray for any loved ones by name who do not know the Lord or have fallen away from You. I ask You to reveal Yourself to them as the awesome God that You are. I pray a hedge of protection around my family from all deception, temptation, and any plans of the enemy that would thwart the good plans God has for them.
Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. The Christian life was never intended to be a solitary one. Jesus shared His life with twelve disciples and then taught them to share it with others.
Twogether For Ever – 21 Day Prayer and Fasting
The early believers gathered together to break bread and share the living Word. What we do each week in church is an expression of shared belief in Jesus — His body, a community of faith that gains strength and courage through worship. But a full and meaningful life of following Jesus is built on much more than one hour a week in church. It requires personal devotion and an interdependency with others in prayer, study, fellowship, and praise. In other words, the best way to follow and serve Jesus is in community.
Modern families come in all shapes and sizes.
Praying for financial wisdom
This cluster of believers is a smaller version of the church, or we could say the church is a larger expression of the family unit. However we view it, the purpose is to be a place for love, acceptance, prayer, and to celebrate the communion of Jesus among us. Finding time to pray as a family beyond grace at meals is an important discipline. To share our hearts, burdens, and triumphs is important, as well as encouraging each other to stay strong in the Lord Ephesians 6: Prayer is as uncomplicated as talking to God together. Seeking time with a trusted brother or sister can move us from defeat to victory.
Building the habit of worshiping together is critical to becoming the people God desires for us to become. Begin with my own family to teach me to be bold to lead in worship and prayer, to bring the greatest glory to You, the only wise God, forever and ever. He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction. The Scripture says in Matthew 4: There is no plan B.
We only know His complete plan for our lives as we look backward. This happened to a Pastor friend of mine.
His son and daughter-in-law, upon graduating from Bible school in Arlington, Texas, with a great ministry to the Mexican people before them, encountered some problems that provoked the son to think God did not really care for him, so he decided to quit the ministry. He was determined to separate himself from God. He stopped praying and reading scripture and instead began drinking and staying out at night, etc. But on his way to inform the missions director of his decision, the son came around a curve, just outside of New Orleans, Louisiana and a tractor trailer, trying to avoid hitting a deer as it crossed the highway, plowed into his car, causing him to go to the hospital.
Now he really believed God did not love Him. But during the next six months, God brought him back to good health, but most importantly reconciled him back to Himself. I have been there; we all have been there in one sense or another. And in all this, be it observed, permitted and ordered of God.
Sometimes, circumstances beyond our control can push us o the thin wire we walk on in this thing called life. It could be the ringing of a phone, a knock on the door, a text, an email. We fall immediately into worry and fear that separates us from God, from our friends, our spouses, etc. How can we not worry or fear when our out know exceeds our income, when a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, when layoffs occur at the company and our name is on the list, when our child is hurt or even killed, or our spouse wants to walk out.
What is our hope? Where do we look for guidance in times like that? We must pray to the One who has control over everything. We must ask Him to do what only He can do. And, we must consult the Scriptures for guidance and hope. Remember these men and women:.
Hagar, a single mom, was forced into a desert with her boy where they nearly died of thirst. Joseph, desiring to be used of God, was seized, stripped, sold, and imprisoned in Egypt. Peter wrote in I Peter 4: As a matter of fact, these things are to be expected in this venture of following Christ. If we are in a time of trial, He is here. But over and above that, our precious eternal Lord is here—He is the One who has promised never to leave or forsake us, never to forget or abandon us. Father God, You know everything about me.
You know the challenges and hope that I have. I pray that You would guide my prayers, thoughts, and actions. I pray that You would give me spiritual eyes to see You in my life and give me the desire and ability to respond in a way that pleases You. Teach me what You want me to learn and help me to grow closer to You each day. It seems for many believers a major disconnect occurs between the heart and mind. We must be aware of His presence more than our sin. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. There are many word pictures or descriptions of the Holy Spirit; one is water. The new wine skins spoken of in Mark can refer to fresh governing or new governing of our lives.
Prayer For Money, Abundance and Financial Breakthrough
Jesus started the church the way He wanted it; now He wants the church the way He started it! He wants us saturated with fresh outpouring! I pray that I will be spiritually-minded and that I will say yes to Your way and will through me. Thank you for Your faithfulness to me! I pray that my spiritual family will receive a fresh outpouring of Your Spirit! He rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven.
The crowd was buzzing. The morning dew was burning o under the heating sun. Dogs barking, birds chirping, and the announcers giving instructions to the trainers to bring their racing greyhound dogs to the track in the appropriate gates. These dogs have been bred and trained since birth to do one thing, run after the lure an artificial, mechanical bunny. They were made for this.
But this race had an unexpected turn…. Part way through the race, the lure exploded! Some ran around aimlessly, some ran back toward the gate where they began, and other dogs just laid down on the track pathetically with their tongues hanging out.
There was no way to determine a winner, so the race was called o. The race was over. So what caused the dogs to lose focus? They lost their vision. Even though they had received the strictest training, they failed to achieve anything because they had nothing to aim for. This story illustrates, in a simple way, the profound truth found in Proverbs Not just by human e ort and planning, but by seeking God through His Word and prayer.
Father, the giver of vision, help me to hear Your voice through Your Word. Mold and motivate me to chase Your vision for my life and the vision You have for Your Church. Answer the prayers of the leaders of this church; give them a clear and passionate vision. Help the vision to stick on the hearts and minds of this congregation — that we might win the race with You! Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.
For He is our God and we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His care. Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing. And He did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith. Oh, how Matthew Therefore, I must pray. Find out who the spiritual leaders of our community are and pray for them regularly. Attend community-wide prayer events where Christians gather to pray for the community. Pray for social justice and compassion e orts to rise up and be successful.
Join in public displays of your faith with other believers. Lastly, ask God to give wisdom about transforming the underlying issues in our community where powers and principalities derive their power. Heavenly Father, I lift up my neighbors before You Lord, asking for Your presence to all the atmosphere so that they will hear You speak and see You work in their lives. Right now I pray for all of my neighbors by name. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.
Above all else, guard your heart. If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a noise? Whether a noise is heard or not, the fallen tree is dead, and there is now a hole in the forest. It has been said integrity is what you do when no one is looking. Does it matter what you do when no one is looking? Do you think there is really an impact? How about with your relationship with God? God looks at the heart. We cannot hide this from Him. The core of who we are, He knows. What we look at, think about, talk of, and act on is all made clear to our Creator.
Integrity is from the heart. Poor integrity does not protect the heart; rather, it tries to destroy it and disobeys God. Good integrity protects the heart, keeps it pure, heals, and ultimately obeys God. Consistent poor integrity that disobeys God is defiance to God.
Prayer and Fasting
It slowly builds a brick wall in between us and God until we can hardly hear Him at all. Poor integrity hinders our connection with God. Good Integrity is not being perfect. It is humbling, repentant, and obedient to God even when no one is watching. Read more about private behavior in Matthew 6: Father, I know you can see my thoughts and know them completely.
I want to be obedient to you. Allow others to see that you change me from the inside out. Look on my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins. We have acted very wickedly toward you. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us. The scriptures reveal the sinfulness of cities such as Sodom, Gomorrah, Nineveh, and other cities too.
Those that repented and turned to God were blessed and those that did not, well, some of them do not even exist anymore. God loves to take a sinful city and turn it into a revival center. The real question is not, can it happen in our community, but will you allow it to happen in you? Confess our sins to Him and repent! That type of foundation causes the people to labor and gain nothing. Lord, we humbly ask Your mercy and for Your forgiveness to be poured out in the community we live in.
Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? Then we will not turn away from you; revive us, and we will call on your name. Restore us, Lord God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved. It is pointed out that 2 Chronicles 7: What does God want from us? First, we must humble ourselves. We must admit that God is God and we are not.
We must submit to God and come to Him in brokenness and repentance. If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. No revival or awakening comes without prayer. We are seeking God for Himself and not for what He gives us. Third, we must turn from our wicked ways. God wants obedience, not religious ceremony. We cannot just say the words of repentance and pray the prayers of repentance.
We must do the deeds of repentance and obey God in every part of life. If we do these three things, then God promises to respond in three ways. First, He will hear us. He will hear those prayers. Second, He will forgive our sin. He will remove our sin as far as the east is from the west. And third, God will heal our land. He will pour out His favor and blessing upon us. In , Abraham Lincoln had just been elected President. The nation was tottering on the brink of war. There was cruel slavery in the land. The President faced widespread opposition and hostility.
He issued a proclamation for our country, a proclamation which expresses the spirit of this passage. And whereas it is t and becoming in all people at all times to acknowledge and revere the supreme government of God, to bow in humble submission to his chastisement, to confess and deplore their sins and transgression, in the full conviction that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and to pray with all fervency and contrition for the pardon of their offenses and for a blessing upon their present and prospective action.
Therefore I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, do appoint the last Thursday in September next as a day of humiliation, prayer and fasting, for all the people of the nation. I ask, Lord, that You raise up dedicated Christians who will become a voice to reform our region and to make a difference in the lives of all who live here. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. My stomach dropped into my shoes as my eyes grew big. I had just heard that there are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in history.
How can that be true? In the progressive post- abolition culture that we live in, how can there be over 27 million slaves worldwide? And how could there have been over 1, calls to the National Human Trafficking Hotline in the past four years from the state of Michigan? But it does, and the reason is because there is heartbreaking injustice in the world. As Christ followers, God makes it clear that we are to take a stand against injustice and fight for those who do not have the ability to fight for themselves.
Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow. How do we even begin to act justly when injustice seems to be taking over? Where do we start? The best place that we can start is where many great Biblical leaders before us have started. Lord, Open our eyes of Understanding. The blind Bartimaeus asked for his sight but when he received his sight he followed Jesus, Solomon asked for wisdom, when he received his wisdom he wrote the Proverbs and Ecclesiastes. Paul prayed for the Corinthians that their eyes of understanding may be opened.
