You Have Been Prayed For… MATTHEW 23:12

Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this from A.W. Tozer.

“Nothing is so vital as prayer, yet a reputation for being a mighty prayer warrior is probably the most perilous of all reputations to have.  No form of selfishness is so deeply and dangerously sinful as that which glories in being a man of prayer

Matthew 23:12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

12 Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.

Lord Jesus, Your servant prays for a humble spirit.  Let only praise and blessings come from Your servant’s heart and mouth.  Help Your servant to never boast in anything other than Jesus and His work on the cross.  Remove all pride, ego and remaining love of the self and replace it with a desire to serve, but in the shadows.  Lord, I gladly confess of my weakness so that the power of Christ may dwell within.  Set straight paths and protect the steps of Your saints as we head into this day, to bring Your glory.  In Jesus’ name, amen.

  1. Brother, when one such as you strives to be unselfish, it is sometimes hard to see ourselves as anything but selfish. That inward criticism is harsh. Please know that from this side of your eyes, you are anything but selfish. Thank you for your servant’s heart my friend. Thank you for these continued calls to His word. It helps us turn from self and focus on Him and others. I speak for many, we love you and appreciate you Matthew.

    1. Thanks brother and it is mutual, but I’ve come to realize it is Him in me that others appreciate. Striving for more of Him.
      BTW I’m planning a new series of posts about the questions I have in my Bible study on certain scripture verses that I cannot find good info for/on. Hoping it makes me better at the studying and brings His word to life for many. ❤️🙏🏼🕊
