You Have Been Prayed For… MATTHEW 23:28

Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer these lines from Ronald Rolheiser.

“To be connected with the church is to be associated with scoundrels, warmongers, fakes, child-molesters, murderers, adulterers, and hypocrites of every description. It also, at the same time, identifies you with saints and the finest persons of heroic soul within every time, country, race, and gender. To be a member of the church is to carry the mantle of both the worst sin and the finest heroism of soul … because the church always looks exactly as it looked at the original crucifixion. God hung among thieves.

Matthew 23:28 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

28 So you, too, outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.

Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You.  Bless You, for calling us to Yourself with saving grave and lovingkindness. Thank You, for searching our innermost parts to shine a light on the hypocrisy and lawlessness of our sin nature, working within us to correct the warring evil within us, Your chosen. We pray that You will continue to refine us to the point of receiving newness of life; a newness that is born of the spirit and not of the flesh. Remind us that our brother’s sin is no greater than our own as we encounter each other’s folly in hopes of leaving the old life in exchange for the glorious new life we have in You. In Jesus’ name, amen.

If this prayer blessed you or brought you peace, please share this with someone in need.

  1. Let’s consider David. His sin, his lust, yet he was called God’s man. The power Jesus provides is ultimate and final. Praise our risen Savior for complete redemption!
