Prayer For You

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:14‭-‬19 NASB

🌹I am praying God will use this prayer for you today. Even though I may not know you, God does, and I hope this prayer of blessing is bestowed on you.

Continually Seeking Him,

Continuous Prayer

pray without ceasing;
1 Thessalonians 5:17 NASB

Jesus spoke about prayer, modeled prayer, and is the recipient of our prayers along with the Father and the Holy Spirit. We are to pray at all times and not lose heart because God will bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night. God will bring about justice quickly for us – the faithful in prayer. Faithfulness in prayer increases faith.
Prayer unifies the body of Christ. Praying for one another, with one another in one mind continually devoting ourselves to prayer. And we each have the gift of the Holy Spirit who helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
Luke 18:1/Luke 18:7‭-‬8/Acts 1:14/Romans 8:26‭-‬27 NASB

🌹Let us give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and pray always for one another.
Colossians 1:3 NASB

1 John 5:5

Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
1 John 5:5 NASB

By faith in You, Lord Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner and in need of a Savior. Everyone is a sinner, as Your Scripture reveals, but it also reveals the promise that by faith in Jesus Christ the righteousness of God would be manifested, would be given to those who believe. And those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God overcomes the world. Out of Your love and care for Your creation, You have commanded that we believe in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, Lord God, and love one another. Your commandments are not burdensome but freeing. Thank You for loving me and for Your Scripture that guides me, shows me how to walk in step with You through obedience. To You, Almighty Sovereign God, be glory forever, amen.
Romans 3:22/Galatians 3:22/1 John 3:23 NASB

🌹that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;

1 John 4:1-4

Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and whoever loves the Father loves the child born of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and observe (do) His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
1 John 5:1‭-‬4 NASB

🌹Jesus, I believe You are the Messiah. I am born of God! I rejoice in You Father for sending Your Son. I love You Father. Thank You for Your great love poured out for me through Your Son whom I love. My being is from You, through You alone. Nothing comes into being apart from You, Jesus, and unless one is born again they cannot see the kingdom of God. I will show my love by my obedience to Your commandments. I will learn from Your Word, my gentle and humble Lord, and find rest for my soul, for Your commandments are not burdensome but light. By faith I shall overcome the world because You who is in me is greater than he who is in the world! Hallelujah!! Abide in me Lord I pray in Jesus name!!!

Philippians 3:13-14

Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13‭-‬14 NASB

🌹The only true God who saves and calls us to a holy calling, I put my faith and trust in You alone. I know my salvation was not according to anything I have done, but according to Your own purpose and grace which was granted me in Christ Jesus from all eternity.
I know, God, that You cause all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to Your purpose. The gifts and Your calling, God, are irrevocable.
I pray for strength  and stamina to run my race, keeping my eyes on You, in such a way that I will receive the imperishable gift of eternal life with You, my God. You are my true prize.
In the awesome name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.

Philippians 3:9

and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith,
Philippians 3:9 NASB

Righteousness in the law is to adhere to the law in obedience. Paul was righteous in adhering to the law being a staunch Pharisee, zealous for keeping the law even to the point of persecuting those who followed Jesus.
as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to the righteousness which is in the Law, found blameless.
Philippians 3:6 NASB
and I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries among my countrymen, being more extremely zealous for my ancestral traditions.
Galatians 1:14‭ NASB
but only, they kept hearing, “He who once persecuted us is now preaching the faith which he once tried to destroy.”
Galatians 1:23 NASB
What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, attained righteousness, even the righteousness which is by faith; but Israel, pursuing a law of righteousness, did not arrive at that law. Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as though it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone,
Romans 9:30‭-‬32 NASB

Holy God, I bow in reverence to Your perfect righteousness. Forgive me for thinking and trying to earn Your righteousness by works.
Father, You sent Your only Son, Jesus, who knew no sin to be sin on my behalf, so that I can become Your righteousness, the righteousness of God, in Christ. It is by Your doing, Father, that I am in Christ Jesus, who became to me my wisdom and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption. How can I possibly thank You enough for my having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of You, God? Bless me Lord, I pray, by satisfying my hunger and thirst for righteousness found only in Jesus Christ, my righteousness. My Redeemer. This I ask in the righteous name of Jesus, my righteousness. Amen.
2 Corinthians 5:21/1 Corinthians 1:30/Philippians 1:11/Matthew 5:6 NASB

🌹If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.
Romans 8:10 NASB
for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
Romans 10:10 NASB

Philippians 3:1

Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you.
Philippians 3:1 NASB

THE Holy God of all wisdom and knowledge, to You I give praise unto Your name! In You I shall rejoice.
Even in the sacrifice and service of my faith I rejoice. Safeguard Your people Lord and may we never get tired of hearing Your repeated word. I pray we rejoice and share our joy with one another as we work together in the fulfillment of Your word. My Peace. My Joy. My Safeguard. In Your name pray. Amen.

Philippians 2:17-18

But even if I am being poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice and share my joy with you all. You too, I urge you, rejoice in the same way and share your joy with me.
Philippians 2:17‭-‬18 NASB

God of my joy, I pray Your joy overflows to others through me so we may rejoice together in the service of our faith.
Lord, I pray asking for a heart that will most gladly spend and be expended for the sake of the souls of others so that the grace which is spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to Your glory, God! Therefore, Lord, I ask that I will not lose heart at my tribulations on behalf of others, for they are Your glory. In Jesus name, amen.
Corinthians 12:25a/2 Corinthians 4:15/Ephesians 3:13 NASB

Philippians 1:7-8

For it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I have you in my heart, since both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of grace with me. For God is my witness, how I long for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus.
Philippians 1:7‭-‬8 NASB

God, the Holy King of Your Church, the body of Christ. I praise You with a thankful heart for Your children in whom my heart is blessed, filled up, full of joy as we are fellow partakers of Your glorious grace. For I long to impart some spiritual gift to them, that they may be established; that is, that I may be encouraged together with them while among them, each of us by the other’s faith, both theirs and mine.
Help me to always be ready to remind them of Your grace, abounding love, and to be established in the truth which is already present with them and they already know and has been established and is present with them. God, through You, it is my request as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, my body, to stir up fellow partakers of Your grace by reminding them of this great gift of the gospel. May I in turn also be reminded by my dear brothers and sisters. May the words I speak not be condemning, Lord, as we live and die together for Your kingdom sake. For I am Your ambassador, my King, who if in chains, I pray I would still speak boldly, as I ought to speak. In Jesus name and for His glory, amen.
2 Peter 1:12‭-‬13/Romans 1:11‭-‬12/2 Corinthians 7:3/Ephesians 6:20 NASB

🌹For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

Attention to the Word – Part 1

He who gives attention to the word will find good,
Proverbs 16:20a NASB

The Bible is the word of God, the story of Jesus Christ. The Word is a person. Jesus Christ.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:1 NASB

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NASB

How much attention do you give to the Word? The word of God? It is impossible to know God intimately without reading the Bible, God’s word.

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
Romans 10:17 NASB

The word of Christ. The Word who brings forgiveness, salvation, life and so much more.

🌹O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
Psalms 34:8 NASB

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within me, with all wisdom. I will read Your word, teaching and admonishing others in the faith with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. I will sing with thankfulness in my heart to You, my God. (Colossians 3:16 NASB)
This I pray in the name of Jesus,  amen.
