The Prayerful Word - September 15

  • Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.


    Isaiah 64:8 You, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, You are the potter; we are all the work of Your hand.


    Hebrews 4:13  Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.


    Ephesians 4:2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.


    Romans 6:13 Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. Instead, give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God.


    Colossians 3:1-2 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.


    May you seek for the sound and stable wisdom of God which comes from above and is given generously from the Father without reproach, not depending upon, but turning from and renouncing, the wisdom of man and the counsel of the world which the Lord will turn to foolishness, causing the leaders to be deceived and making the land to stagger as the cornerstones of culture go astray. Isaiah 19, James 1


    May you always walk in trust toward the Lord and exercise faith in God, for that which you see as impossible to have happen is already accomplished in the eyes of the Lord. Isaiah 19


    May you walk humbly before those God is drawing, as He makes Himself known to them, so they may know how to turn to the Lord and be healed, for in that day the Lord Almighty will bless them saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.” Isaiah 19


    May you follow the guidance of the Lord in obedient reverence, though you do not understand all that He is doing or how He is working, for He will support you and sustain you in your vulnerability and suffering, Isaiah 20


    May you ever recall that on the threshing floor, the harvest is trodden underfoot and dealt blow after blow, after the stalk that gave life and nourishment is cut off and dried up, to separate the chaff and straw, without harm to the grain, and even so, the afflictions and persecutions, the tribulations and troubles which come in your life will cause separation and removal of that which is useless, but cannot harm that which the Lord has grown and developed in your life and finds so very valuable and worthwhile. Isaiah 21


    My child, sin shall not be a master over you, for in Me you have died, and through Me, you have a new life. Live in the freedom you have been given by grace through the law of the Spirit of life that you have received from Me. Keep standing firm in My Name and on My Word, and do not allow the lies of the enemy to trigger conditioned reflexes in you to repeat old habits, lest you put on again the yoke of slavery that you were once subject to.

    Be renewed in your mind through the study of My Word, allowing My Spirit of revelation to make the truth of the scripture real to you, showing you how to apply it to yourself, giving you the means to put on the mind of Christ and be able to discern between that which brings life, and that which brings death.

    Let the peace that passes understanding dwell richly within you and around you in all ways and at all times, even as I am with you. As you grow in understanding that you are justified before the Father through Me, and are no longer subject to the judgment of wrath, there will be no more fearful expectation of evil befalling you. 

    Daily growing in grace and wisdom in the Father, you will be able to walk in peace within and without, at home and outside of home, with fellow workers, with fellow Christians, and with those in the marketplace. My peace withstands the attacks of the enemy when you stand up and when you lie down, when your thoughts are preoccupied and when you wait for sleep to arrive, for it is the confident assurance of victory in My name and through My power rather than yours.

    You will not dread bad news, for your faith is in Me, and you know that I will never leave you nor forsake you. Though terror fills the hearts of those who do not yet know Me, you are not of them and you are not subject to their master any longer. I place you in their midst, and let you live through the same experiences so that I can make a distinction in their eyes between you and them, that I may provoke some, by jealousy, to seek Me as well. Though some will hate you for My sake, others will come to Me through the witness you give as you remain confidently faithful and humbly secure in your assurance in Me without wavering.

    Be strong and of good courage, My love, for I will bring all things to pass as they need to. Simply draw close to Me and let Me love others through you.


    May you always be ready to give to others a full account of your ministry and service in the gospel, depending on God for success even as you exercise all proper caution to remove mistakes and avoid misunderstanding, never giving place to conduct by any which would reflect poorly on, or distort the truth and beauty of, the gospel of God. Galatians 2


    May you know that a man is not justified by observing the law but by faith in Jesus Christ. Galatians 2


    May you continue to remember the poor as you live the Gospel you preach. Galatians 2


    May you turn to God for deliverance from your enemies and protection from those who rise up against you as you seek to walk in God's will. Psalm 59


    May you depend on the Lord God Almighty to rouse Himself and punish all the spiritual principalities who lie in wait for you and conspire against you without cause or offense, ready to attack you, for He will look upon your plight and show no mercy to wicked traitors.  Psalm 59


    May you watch for God, your Strength, your Fortress, Who lovingly goes before you, scoffing and laughing at the powers of the air who snarl like dogs and spew swords from their lips, rejecting the will and the love of God. Psalm 59


    May you sing of His strength in the evening, and sing of His love in the morning, for because the wicked sin in their heart and curse with their mouth, they will be caught in their pride and consumed by His wrath until it is known to the ends of the earth that God rules over Jacob, and He is your strong refuge in times of trouble. Psalm 59
