The Prayerful Word - April 24

  • John 8:12 [Jesus] said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

    Nehemiah 1:11 Nehemiah prayed, “Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name."

    Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!

    Psalm 16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.

    Luke 14:26-27 If any man come to Me, and hate not…his own life…he cannot be My disciple. 27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross and come after Me, cannot be My disciple.

    Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart.

    May you keep the way of the Lord and walk in it as you are tested by the spiritual powers and authorities that are around you and that come against you. Judges 2

    May you allow the Lord to teach you spiritual warfare against the evil powers and wicked principalities that continue to resist God's will in your life and seek to influence your thoughts and motives, as they test you to see whether you will obey the Lord's commands. Judges 3

    May you be among others as the youngest, and as one who serves those around you, for though the Lord has given you to eat and drink at His table, you are to follow His example as He moves among us as the Servant of all. Luke 22

    May you know, and be certain of the fact, that the Lord is interceding for you so your faith will not fail, and you will be able to strengthen your brothers as you draw closer to God. Luke 22

    The seasons and cycles of your life are ordained by Me, My child, and are a natural and beneficial process that you go through.
    Just as day follows night, there are times of plenty and of famine, times of great awareness of My presence and times when you feel alone. This is part of the mutability and changeableness of the natural world.
    Since I am spirit, and I inhabit eternity, there is no shadow of turning with Me, for I change not, but your awareness of Me drifts and shifts.
    Although the sun disappears for the night, it will return unchanged. Even though the sun shines constantly, the wobble of the Earth changes how much heat comes through the atmosphere, causing winter and summer. The sun has not changed, for it puts out the same light and heat, but Earth has inclined away from it.
    There are times for rest and consolidation, My precious one, that I build into your life to prepare you for the times of activity and vigorous growth and ministry. This, too, will run its course in due time and, like the seventy disciples sent out to minister, you will return to Me for further teaching and growth.
    Let your faith rise, for it will carry you through the quiet times, and let My Spirit teach you to be, before He leads you forth to do.

    May you praise the Lord and make music to the name of the Most High, proclaiming His love in the morning and His faithfulness at night. Psalm 92

    May you be made glad by His deeds and sing for joy at the works of His hands, for the works of the Lord are great and His thoughts are profound and, while the wicked will be destroyed, the Lord is exalted forever. Psalm 92

    May the Lord increase your strength and bring fresh vigor to your life as your eyes see the defeat of your adversaries and your ears hear of the rout of your foes. Psalm 92

    May you flourish like a palm tree and grow like a cedar of Lebanon, for the Lord will plant you in the house of God so that you may flourish in the courts of the Lord, bearing fruit in old age, remaining fresh and green as you proclaim, “The Lord is upright; He is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in Him.” Psalm 92

    May you confess that the Lord reigns and is robed in majesty, armed with strength, and His throne has been established from all eternity. Psalm 93

    May the statues of the Lord stand firm and holiness adorn the house of the Lord for endless days. Psalm 93

    May you fear the Lord, as all who walk uprightly do, rather than despising Him as do those whose ways are devious. Proverbs 14:2
