The Prayerful Word - April 23

  • Jude 1:20-21 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.

    John 4:23-24 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.

    1 Peter 4:7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.

    Jeremiah 10:23 Lord, I know that people’s lives are not their own; it is not for them to direct their steps.

    John 16:13 Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come.

    Zechariah 4:6 …Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit', says the LORD of hosts.

    May you resist the influences and principalities which inhabit the land God has directed you to cleanse and make ready for His kingdom, the fertile and abundant territory of your thoughts and emotions where God's creativity can abide, and make no agreement with those corrupting powers, refusing to allow them to serve you in any way, lest you end up serving them as they become thorns in your side and a snare to your heart. Judges 2

    May you have the eyes to see and the understanding to realize, when you notice these things happening, that the kingdom of God is near, for heaven and earth will pass away, but the Word of God will never pass away. Luke 21

    May you take heed to yourself, and constantly be on your guard, aware lest at any time your heart grow cold because it is weighed down and dulled from self-indulgence, excess, and the cares and worries of your life in this world, but always be on watch, alert, and pray constantly that you may be found worthy to receive the strength to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able, in that day, to stand before the Son of Man. Luke 21

    May the Lord be your dwelling place throughout all the years of your life, for before the mountains were born or the world was brought forth, from everlasting to everlasting, He is God, to Whom a thousand years are like a day just gone by. Psalm 90

    May you learn from the Lord how to number your days aright, so that you may gain a heart of wisdom, for who knows the power of His anger since His wrath is as great as the fear that is due Him. Psalm 90

    May you sing for joy and be glad all your days when the Lord has compassion on His servants and satisfies you in the morning with His unfailing love, making you glad for as many days as you have been afflicted, for as many years as you have seen trouble, so that His deeds and splendor may be shown to His servants. Psalm 90

    May the favor of the Lord your God rest upon you to establish the work of your hands. Psalm 90

    Turn to Me, My child, only to Me, that your testimony may be pure.
    I am not a concept or a vague, impersonal power - I am your loving Creator, resurrected Savior, living Redeemer, and soon-returning King. You must know Me personally to introduce Me, by your witness and testimony, to those who are seeking Me.
    Know Me, not as a tradition or as someone else’s benefactor, but personally, individually. Bring Me your needs and receive My abundance. Share your burdens and let Me lighten your load. Pour out your sorrows and know My joy. Confess your sins and receive My forgiveness and acceptance. See My wounds, and receive your healing. View My death, and partake in My life.
    If you are not changed by My Presence, if you are not convicted by My holiness, if you are not humbled by My majesty, if your world is not turned upside down by My revelation, then it is not Me that you are learning of.
    Learn truth and wisdom of Me as you study My Word and let it renew your mind. Come into My presence through worshipful praise, and let your times of prayer draw My Spirit to you as He helps you pray those things on My heart for which you have no words. Walk with Me through the marketplace and the byways as I pursue those whose hearts are Mine, those who feel the drawing of My love but are held captive by the enemy of their souls, those of My sheep who have lost their way back or been injured.
    Let your voice speak My words of life to them and proclaim liberty and victory over them. Let your hands and feet find practical expression of My love for them in ways that bring solace to their souls and healing to their hearts.
    Philosophy reaches the minds of the hearers, but cannot touch their hearts; religion can reach the soul but does not change the spirit. I am the way, the truth and the life, and it is through Me, the Door to the kingdom, that all must enter who come to the Father.
    Abide in Me in humility and obedience so that I may abide in you in truth and in power, and the will of the Father be done in earth as it is in heaven.

    May you dwell in the shelter of the Most High and rest in the shadow of the Almighty, saying of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” He will save you from the fowler's snare and the deadly pestilence, covering you with His feathers so that you will find refuge under His wings and be shielded and protected by His faithfulness. Psalm 91

    May you not fear the terror of night nor the arrow flying by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday, for though a thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, it will not come near you, and you will only observe it with your eyes as you see the punishment of the wicked. Psalm 91

    May you make the Most High your dwelling, even the Lord, Who is your refuge, for then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your dwelling. He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways, and they will lift you up in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone, even though you will trample the great lion and the serpent. Psalm 91

    May you love the Lord, for then He will rescue you and protect you because you acknowledge His name, calling upon Him for He will answer and be with you in trouble, delivering you and honoring you, satisfying you with long life and showing you His salvation. Psalm 91

    May you accept the love of the Father as it is demonstrated in His discipline, for those to whom He spares the rod are those whom He hates. Proverbs 13:24

    May you dine at the Lord's table and be refreshed to your heart's content, as the righteous do, and never be hungry for lack of the Living Bread as the wicked are. Proverbs 13:25
