You Have Been Prayed For… PROVERBS 20:9

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

‘Doing it my way’ is seen as a sign of individual integrity and creativity in a too-conformist world, whereas it is in reality a surface-level symptom of sin’s rule in the heart.

Proverbs 20:9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Who can say, “I have cleansed my heart,
I am pure from my sin”?

Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You.  Bless You, for the sacrifice You made that cleanses us from our sins. Praise the name of Jesus, which has the power to save. Your servant is guilty of a hard heart and a prideful spirit that attempts to play god by doing things that are clearly against Your will. Help Your servants stubbornness and relax this stiff neck. Help our unbelief and increase our faith, hope, and love in You alone. Open our eyes to the Truth and protect us from all unrighteousness. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You.  Bless You, for faith, hope, and love.  We realize the most important of these is love because Your Word says so, but we need an increase in all three my Lord.

If we could only trust more, we could avoid so much of the troubles and trials we find ourselves in. Help us to see things as Gideon did, that You alone shall rule over us. Be our lamp to ensure we do not turn down the roads of darkness to the ways of men, but stay on the paths that lead to eternal life with You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
