Fervent prayer engulfs our minds, bodies, and souls! It brings our whole being into the presence of God, where He sets our souls on fire, there we cannot move or our minds wander, we are paralyzed by the glory of God, but held in awe of His presence, there is no doubt or fear, only faith, and peace as we humbly submit to the LORD our God our request!
Help me Holy Spirit, fervently pray!
Guide my heart and mind and pray for me, through me that my words would not be empty repetition, that they would be filled with my hearts desire to know God, my Father, more, that my request would line up with His will that I would walk daily with Him, fill my heart with grace, mercy, and love for others that they would see Christ in me, always!
Oh, how I long to live in His presence each day this way, not to move to the left or the right but to come before Christ on my face and stay at His feet and live!
The world we live in is perishing at a rapid rate, seemingly out of control. Sin and death seem to rule over those around me, I am helpless to stop them, but you alone Jesus have conquered sin and death, and given us the victory, may we live in that victory and help others come to know you.
Teach us each day, lead us in your everlasting way, speak deep into our souls, so others would see the glory of God upon our face, and lives.
Our time here is short, create in us the urgency of today, guard our hearts and minds, our speech and countenance, make our ways clear so we may honor you in all we do and lead others to you so they may know your love and truth.
God’s word says this!
“When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they came together. And one of them, an expert in the law, asked a question to test him: “Teacher, which command in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important command. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commands.”Matthew 22:34-40 CSB
“He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and looked down on everyone else: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee was standing and praying like this about himself: ‘God, I thank you that I’m not like other people — greedy, unrighteous, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of everything I get.’ “But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even raise his eyes to heaven but kept striking his chest and saying, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner! ’ I tell you, this one went down to his house justified rather than the other; because everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”Luke 18:9-14 CSB
“Let love be without hypocrisy. Detest evil; cling to what is good. Love one another deeply as brothers and sisters. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lack diligence in zeal; be fervent in the Spirit; serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope; be patient in affliction; be persistent in prayer. Share with the saints in their needs; pursue hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud; instead, associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own estimation. Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Give careful thought to do what is honorable in everyone’s eyes. If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Friends, do not avenge yourselves; instead, leave room for God’s wrath, because it is written, Vengeance belongs to me; I will repay, says the Lord. But If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him something to drink. For in so doing you will be heaping fiery coals on his head. Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good.”Romans 12:9-21 CSB
