The Prayerful Word - March 6

  • Psalm 90:1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.

    Luke 14:23 The master said to the slave, “Go out into the roads and lanes, and compel people to come in, so that my house may be filled.”

    2 Corinthians 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

    Hebrews 4:3 For we which have believed do enter into rest.

    Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

    May you be willing to separate yourself unto the Lord on occasion, and for a period, devoting the time and concern ordinarily allotted for the ease and care of the flesh to the renewing and refreshing of the spirit, not gratifying the desires of the mind and body, but giving your focus and strength to the discipline of the spirit, that your conscience may be kept from dead works and not touch on unclean things, but present yourself holy to the Lord for His purposes and to His glory and praise. Numbers 6

    May the Lord bless you and keep you; may the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; may the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace. Numbers 6

    The Lord will kneel before you [as a father presenting gifts to his small child] and will guard you with a hedge of protection. The Lord will illuminate the wholeness of His being toward you bringing order and He will give you comfort and sustenance. The Lord will lift up His wholeness of being and look upon you and He will set in place all you need to be whole and complete. Numbers 6 []

    May the Lord's name be upon you to bless you. Numbers 6

    May your gift to God be given, not in comparison to what others give, but in proportion to your love for Him, which is through your understanding of what you have received from Him, for as you grow in knowledge of His Word and in revelation by His Spirit, you will see the depth of your dependence on His mercy and grace. Numbers 7

    May your devotion to God be in purity toward Him, and not deceitful disguise toward others, and may it start in private with your thoughts and intents toward God that it may blossom in love and good deeds toward His people. Mark 12

    My child, you are right to glory in what I have done for you, bragging to others of how I have lifted you out of the pit you were trapped in, setting you free, and boasting of how I have emboldened your heart and guided your feet and strengthened your hands and given you words that touch others, bringing light to lives that only knew darkness until My power touched them.
    I have loved you from eternity and gladly gave all I have to bring you into the family of God, sharing that which was Mine alone, that you may be accepted in the Father as His children, My brethren, and recognized as co-heirs with Me.
    Be cautious, therefore, My exuberant one, to remember that you were My enemy when I did this for you. Remember to remain at the foot of the cross, My rambunctious one, even as you celebrate the empty tomb.
    When I send you out on tasks and assignments, never fail to recall that your testimony is about what I did for you, My lovely one, not about who it is that I did it for.
    It is through the power of the resurrection that the victory was won over the death on the cross, but it is on the cross that My love was fully expressed for you. I joyfully choose to carry those scars as emblems of your value to Me and as badges of recognition so that you will know and recognize Me. Therefore, let the knowledge of how I was pierced and how I was crushed and how I was scourged travel with you so that your devotion toward Me remains fresh and true, and your heart remains humbled by the depth of My love for you.
    It is in the lowliness of your spirit that you will be able to effectively and powerfully minister My resurrected life to others, for that is when your view of My majesty will be the clearest.

    May you give unto the Lord as the widow who gave from her need, and not as the rich who gave from their surplus, for when you give all you have to God, God gives all He has to you. Mark 12

    May you be on your guard and remain alertly attentive to God, for His Spirit will give you the words that need to be said at the time and place that He brings you to, and each one who stands firm to the end will be saved. Mark 13

    May you not be overawed when a man grows rich or the splendor of his house increases for he will take nothing with him when he dies. Psalm 49

    May you not fear when evil days come and wicked deceivers surround you, for God will redeem the lives of those who trust in Him from the grave and take each to Himself, and the upright will rule over those who trust in themselves. Psalm 49

    May you fear the Lord and add length to your life, rather than have your years cut short, as do the wicked. Proverbs 10:27

    May your prospect in the Lord be joy, as is that of the righteous, rather than have your hopes come to nothing, as does the wicked. Proverbs 10:28
