You Have Been Prayed For… JAMES 4:14

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

“The gospel is too important to be left to tomorrow, or next week, or when the crowd seems friendlier.”

James 4:14
New American Standard Bible

14 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. For you are just a vapor that appears for a little while, and then vanishes away.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and worships You.  Bless Your gospel that brings hope to the hopeless. Praise the good news of Your salvation throughout all the earth. Lord, help us not waste a single opportunity to testify about how You have changed our hearts and lives. Thank You for the reminder that there is no promise of tomorrow and we should act accordingly. We are even more thankful that we can call You Abba. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… ECCLESIASTES 4:9-12

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

“The Bible speaks more about resisting the devil than it does about binding him.”

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
New American Standard Bible

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor; 10 for if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up! 11 Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone12 And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and worships You.  Bless Your patient compassion towards us, and praise Your perfect instructions and wisdom that tells us to flee from evil. Help us to obey and to leave Your part to You. We thank You for our brothers and sisters that come to our aid knowing all good things are gifts from You. Help us to be humble and helpful for Your glory. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… MATTHEW 6:6

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

“The more we pray, the more we sense our need to pray. And the more we sense a need to pray, the more we want to pray.”

Matthew 6:6
New American Standard Bible

But as for you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door, and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You.  Bless You, for giving us prayer so we can communicate with You, the God of all creation. Please forgive us when we make excuses for avoiding prayer. We are so easily distracted and our hearts still deceive us. Thank You for always being there when we make the right choice and come to You in secret and lay it all down. You are our faithful strong tower to which we run. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… HOSEA 11:7

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.

“Unregenerate apostates are often cheerful souls, but backsliding Christians are always miserable.”

Hosea 11:7
New King James Version

My people are bent on backsliding from Me.
Though they call to the Most High,
None at all exalt Him.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You.  Bless You, for convicting us of sin and making us hate its hold on the world. Praise Your faithfulness in responding to our calling out, our crying out, and our pleading in times of distress. The fact that You know we will backslide and You choose to love us anyway is what breaks sinners and turns us into adopted children of heaven. We thank You for the grace in Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… PROVERBS 12:8

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

“Think against your feelings; argue yourself out of the gloom they have spread; unmask the unbelief they have nourished; take yourself in hand, talk to yourself, make yourself look up from your problems to the God of the gospel; let evangelical thinking correct emotional thinking.”

Proverbs 12:8
New American Standard Bible 1995

A man will be praised according to his insight,
But one of perverse mind will be despised.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and worships You.  Bless Your relentless love. We praise You, for caring and loving us so much that it brings us out of the darkness and into Your glorious Light. Give us Your wisdom and share the understanding from on high. We need You to convict our spirit when we think or speak against Truth. Help us combat all feelings with Your Sword so we can take all thoughts captive to Christ our Lord. In His name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… 1 CORINTHIANS 13:2

Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this thought from an unknown saint.

“If you have only the Word, you dry up. If you have only the Spirit, you blow up. But if you have both, you grow up.”

1 Corinthians 13:2
New American Standard Bible

If I have the gift of prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You.  Bless You, for loving us before we took our first breath. Your servant noticed this morning in prayer that without the love You first gave us, we are worthless and hopeless. Since You are Love, it makes total sense that we are nothing without it. Knowing we are nothing apart from You keeps us drawing near, and for that, we are so grateful. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… ISAIAH 26:3

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.

“The use of right words does not guarantee right thoughts!”

Isaiah 26:3
New American Standard Bible

The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and worships You.  Bless Your glorious richness that surpasses all understanding. We praise You for the mercies that found us this beautiful day. Your gift of peace as well as instruction on how to find it is a great treasure, and while we know there is no magic in our words and that the power lay in You alone when we place our faith and trust in You. Help our every thought to be focused on You. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… PSALM 24:1

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

“It is in truth the word of God that rules the world and that fixes our fortunes for us.”

Psalm 24:1
New American Standard Bible

24 The earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains,
The world, and those who live in it.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and worships You.  Bless Your Word that made and rules everything outside of Yourself. You are so perfect in every way. Our prayer is for help to stop doubting and to start trusting You in everything. Where else should we place our trust… in mere man? Help us, Lord, Maranatha! In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.

You Have Been Prayed For… JOHN 16:13

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.

“It is not for us to imagine that we can prove the truth of Christianity by our own arguments, nobody can prove truth of Christianity except the Holy Spirit, by His own almighty work of renewing the blinded heart.”

John 16:13
New American Standard Bible

13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You.  Bless You, for the general revelation of Your glory, leaving the work to convince others of Your glory to You and the Holy Spirit. Help us to remember that You are the one who truly teaches and it is our responsibility to serve with love, compassion, and humility. May the weight lessen on the shoulders of those who believe it is their job to prove the truth to a world that hates the very idea of truth. Thank You, Holy Spirit, for guiding us into all Truth. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.
