Prayer

imageJust a few verses to start off your day!

 

1 Timothy 2:1-2–  “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”

1 Timothy 2:8–  “Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.”

Ephesians 6:18–   And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”

Philippians 1:9-11–   And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,  so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.”

 

As Christians, we should long to speak with our Father in heaven, praying for our brothers and sisters in Christ.  My prayer for you today is echoed in the passage in Philippians above.  I pray that you will grow in maturity in our Lord Jesus Christ and that he will continue to bless you with the fruit of his Spirit so that you may be effective in your life for him. I pray that your faith will daily grow in Jesus and that you will seek to glorify him in everything that you do.  I pray that we are unified in our desire to serve the Lord and obey him through his word.  And I pray that through us, we may bring others into the knowledge of the great and powerful love that our Father has for all of his children.

-Joe
