The Prayerful Word - May 28

  • Deuteronomy 29:29 The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the revealed things belong to us and to our children forever, to observe all the words of this law.

    Isaiah 9:6 To us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

    Luke 22:19 [Jesus] took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me."

    John 13:16-17 I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

    1 Peter 4:17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?

    Micah 7:18-19 Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? 19 He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy. He will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities.

    May you be willing to suffer the greatest wrong rather than to commit the least sin, lest like David, the anguish of chastisement persist. 2 Samuel 13

    May you ever feel the love of the Father for those who need it most, who are least prepared to die. 2 Samuel 13

    May the friends you choose and the counsel you seek be from those of the household of God, lest the advice you receive and the influence you accept lead you from the path of life and into wickedness and death. 2 Samuel 13

    May you bring glory to God on earth by completing the work He gives you to do. John 17

    May you reveal Jesus to those the Spirit leads you to, that they may, through Christ, come to the Father as you speak the words He gives you and you pray for those in whom He has placed a hunger for the deep and eternal things of God. John 17

    May you not expect to be rich or great in the world, but that you may receive the true and eternal treasure of unity in the affection of the Father and the co-labors with His children, as well as protection from attacks of the enemy, deliverance from the wrath of men, and strength to withstand the corruption of the sinful nature that remains in our flesh. John 17

    May you desire, and pray, for the sanctification of holiness through the grace of God which Jesus desired, and prayed, for you, and for which He sanctified Himself. John 17

    May you also be in the Father and the Son, so that the world may believe that the Son has been sent by the Father when they see the people who call upon the name of God keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, more and more united in one mind and one desire. John 17

    May you be comforted and receive peace with complete assurance that the desire of the heart of Jesus is for you to be with Him in the glory the Father has given Him Whom He has loved before the creation of the world. John 17

    The love that I have for you, My child, is strong and enduring, never wavering, always active on your behalf.
    Give Me first place in your heart, My dear one, and My love will flow out to all the others I have placed in your life – in your family, at your work, around your neighborhood.
    If you love yourself more than Me, you will care for others less, for you will be out of balance. If you regard anyone over Me, you will not have proper respect for yourself, for they cannot give you the strength of life you need.
    Honor Me highest, fear Me most, love Me first, and I will keep all things in balance in your relationships, and you will find you have power with Me in your prayers for others in need, and authority in My name on the behalf of those in warfare.
    My love, expressed through your life, will not seek for your own needs but will strive for the needs and the welfare of others. By this will all men know that you are of My family, for those in the world do not offer the open hand that I call you to offer.
    Just as My compassions are new every morning, so must you turn to Me each day. Release those aspects of your character that the world calls “strength” but that you will find to be isolating and separating from Me.
    Put on the new man daily, and be blessed with the riches I give you. These riches are not to be stored or hoarded as the world does, but given as I direct for the growth of My kingdom.
    When you follow My guidance, you will see My kingdom increase both in numbers, as others are drawn to Me, and in area, as more of your heart is reclaimed and brought under My loving care and watchful protection.

    May you put your hope in the Word of the Lord, even when you desperately long for deliverance, and your eyes grow weary looking for God's promises to be fulfilled. Psalm 119

    May you embrace God's precepts and obey God's directives, even though men persecute you without cause and the arrogant and lawless dig pitfalls for you, for all His commands are trustworthy and the Lord will preserve your life according to His abundant love. Psalm 119

    May God's Word be your delight for it is eternal, standing firm in the heavens, and remaining trustworthy through all generations, enduring to this very day, even to preserving your life as you have sought out the Lord's precepts, followed His leadings and remembered His promises. Psalm 119

    May the fear of the Lord keep you away from evil, as His unfailing love and faithfulness atones for your iniquity. Proverbs 16:6

    May your choices and actions bring pleasure to the Lord, for He can make even your enemies to be a peace with you. Proverbs 16:7
