1 John 5:16-17

If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death. There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this. All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death.
1 John 5:16‭-‬17 NASB

Lord God, I offer up a prayer by faith for my brother/sister who is caught up in a sin. I pray You will restore him/her and forgive him/her. Lord, I know intercession on behalf of those who once were enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, blaspheming the Lord, You will not hear my prayer on their behalf. In the case of those who have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame. God, I pray for Your extravagant love to be poured out on my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and keep us from falling away into blasphemous sin. Father, God I pray I will not neglect to pray for Your saints. Thank You Father for the offer of salvation through Your Son. Thank You, Jesus for Your sacrificial obedience on the cross and thanks be to the Holy Spirit who convicts and leads to salvation, forgiveness, and guidance to walk into eternity by faith through grace. To You, Father, Son and Holy Spirit be honor and glory forever, amen.
James 5:15/Jeremiah 14:11/Jeremiah 7:16/Numbers 15:30/Hebrews 6:4‭-‬6 NASB

🌹For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
Hebrews 10:26 NASB

1 John 3:17-20

But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. We will know by this that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart before Him in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things.
1 John 3:17‭-‬20 NASB

God, You are great!! I draw near to You with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith; please draw near to me. I cleanse my hands before You seeking Your forgiveness for that which condemns me. I then can willingly approach Your throne with a pure heart and clean hands. You know my heart and all things God.
All that I have, Lord is Yours. You have given me all I possess physically and spiritually. God, I pray that I will not close my heart to a brother and/or sister in need. How can I if You are abiding in me? Transform my heart to love in deed and truth. You abundantly bless Lord God. I pray I will freely open my hand to my brothers/sisters in need and  generously lend him/her sufficient for his/her need in whatever he/she lacks. All to and for Your glory! Amen

🌹You shall generously give to him, and your heart shall not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all your undertakings. For the poor will never cease to be in the land; therefore I command you, saying, ‘You shall freely open your hand to your brother, to your needy and poor in your land.’
Deuteronomy 15:10‭-‬11 NASB

God’s Purpose

Now do not be grieved or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life. God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant in the earth, and to keep you alive by a great deliverance. Now, therefore, it was not you who sent me here, but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh and Lord of all his household and ruler over all the land of Egypt.
Genesis 45:5‭, ‬7‭-‬8 NASB

God has a plan. Even when it looks bad, it is for the good of God’s people. His deliverance. Look at Jesus. He came for a mere 33 years and was persecuted, spit on, denied. But O, the Father had a grandiose plan.

When Joseph’s brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, “What if Joseph bears a grudge against us and pays us back in full for all the wrong which we did to him!” So they sent a message to Joseph, saying, “Your father charged before he died, saying, ‘Thus you shall say to Joseph, “Please forgive, I beg you, the transgression of your brothers and their sin, for they did you wrong.” ’ And now, please forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father.” And Joseph wept when they spoke to him. Then his brothers also came and fell down before him and said, “Behold, we are your servants.” But Joseph said to them, “Do not be afraid, for am I in God’s place?
Genesis 50:15‭-‬19 NASB

Joseph trusted God despite the circumstances that were tough and grim for him. God blessed him and many through him despite the circumstances he faced.

So therefore, do not be afraid; I will provide for you and your little ones.” So he comforted them and spoke kindly to them.
Genesis 50:21 NASB

🌹 God will provide, possibly through you and the circumstances you are in right now. Do you trust Him for the outcome?
