You Have Been Prayed For… 1 SAMUEL 12:23

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. Paul Reno.

“Is it not amazing that we have no problem with people wearing themselves out in sport for pleasure, work for money, politics for power, and programs for charity, but think it fanatical to so pray for souls?”

1 Samuel 12:23
New American Standard Bible

23 Furthermore, as for me, far be it from me that I would sin against the Lord by ceasing to pray for you; but I will instruct you in the good and right way.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You.  Lord, it is with a heavy heart that Your servant seeks You. The sorrow and sadness felt for those we love that refuse to repent from chasing the things of the world lead us to pray for their souls. We know You hear these prayers and we place our hope in You as we allow You to lead us in the good and right Way. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen. 

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

You Have Been Prayed For… JOHN 6:27

Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer these lines from Daniel Nash wrote in 1826.

“The work of God moves forward in power, in some places against dreadful opposition. Mr. Finney and I have both been hanged and burned in effigy. We have frequently been disturbed in our religious meetings. Sometimes the opposers make a noise in the house of God; sometimes they gather round the house and stone it, and discharge guns. There is almost as much writing, intrigue, and lying, and reporting of lies, as there would be if we were on the eve of a presidential election. Oh, what a world! How much it hates the truth! How unwilling to be saved! But I think the work will go on.”

John 6:27
New American Standard Bible

27 Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that lasts for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal.”

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You.  Bless You, for being the giver of all good gifts. Thank You for using brother Nash as an example for us to see what fervent prayer looks like. Help us pursue work that glorifies Your name and give us grace enough to succeed. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… ISAIAH 31:1

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

“Humanity has a stubborn habit of looking to the gift rather than the Giver for fulfillment.”

Isaiah 31:1
New American Standard Bible

31 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help
And rely on horses,
And trust in chariots because they are many
And in horsemen because they are very strong,
But they do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the Lord!

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You.  Bless You, for being the source of all mercy, lovingkindness, and grace. You alone are Lord. Praise Your patience and long-suffering towards our stubborn and rebellious hearts. Only Your love and grace are powerful enough to change sinners into saints. Help us to keep our eyes locked on You as our mouths profess the glory of God to anyone willing to listen. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… ROMANS 6:19

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

“Sanctification is “being salvationed,” the new life arising from the catastrophe suffered by the old upon hearing that God alone saves. It is the pure flower that blossoms in the desert, watered by the unconditional grace of God.”

Romans 6:19
New American Standard Bible

19 I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented the parts of your body as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your body’s parts as slaves to righteousness, resulting in sanctification.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You.  Bless You, for breaking the chains of bondage to sin and setting our hearts to be slaves to Christ. Hear our prayers for the needed heart change in our loved ones that refuse to pursue a relationship with You. Give the unsaved a desire so strong for the truth that it will result in finding peace as they place their trust in You. Please help us as well not to grow weary in prayer for our loved ones. Help our unbelief in knowing it is finished, and that the work has already been done. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… GALATIANS 1:6-8

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

“You accept the gospel. You don’t rewrite it, reshape it, revise it, or rework it.

Galatians 1:6-8
New American Standard Bible

I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel, which is not just another account; but there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and worships You.  Bless Your gospel and its power to turn the darkest hearts into radiant light for Your kingdom. Praise the perfection and simplicity of Your good news to all mankind as it opens a relationship with You, our Creator. Grant us wisdom and discernment in every circumstance so we rightly divide the words of men using the life-giving Word of God. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… MATTHEW 26:41

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

“A person’s inner nature, what he possesses in the inner, spiritual part of his being, determines what he is tempted by on the outside. The temptation fits the true nature of the person being tempted and reveals the possibilities of his nature. Every person actually determines or sets the level of his own temptation, because temptation will come to him in accordance with the level of his controlling, inner nature.

Matthew 26:41
New American Standard Bible

41 Keep watching and praying, so that you do not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and worships You.  Bless Your life-saving wisdom and instructions for living. Praise the simplicity of Your Word that makes it possible for us to understand and follow. Help us with Your Holy Spirit to be bold in our prayers as we keep watch for the snares and temptations of our deceitful hearts. Thank You for faithfully being all we need. Lead us in understanding that You alone are worthy of our praise. In Jesus’ mighty name, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… PSALM 40:17

Psalm 40:17
New American Standard Bible

17 But I am afflicted and needy;
May the Lord be mindful of me.
You are my help and my savior;
Do not delay, my God.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You.  Bless You, for the trouble and trials we experience. While uncomfortable at the time we know there is love behind it. We thank You for helping us in every circumstance and acknowledge Your hand in all our victories. Help us to see the love in each rebuke and correction that comes our way. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.
