Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit – you choose’ (v.21, MSG). You can do great good or great damage with what you say.
Lord, may the words I speak be a source of life to those around me.
Lord, thank you so much for the inspiring example of those like the apostle Paul. Whatever the outward appearance or circumstance, may my heart be full of joy. May I not judge people or situations by how they look from the outside, but like you, always look to the heart.
Lord, I need your wisdom. Please give me a wise and discerning heart in every situation I face. Lord, I pray for the wisdom that comes from heaven and is first of all pure, peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere (3:17).
Thank You, God, for reminding me that I have You and the Holy Spirit– the ones that I should be depending my life on.
Help me to activate my faith, help me to remember to rely on You, to pray, and to pray in tongue regularly throughout my day. Help me not to segregate prayer as only something that I do on a certain time!
I yearn to live a Spirit-led life!
Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
Praying in Jesus’ name is about aligning yourself with Jesus. As you do this, your prayers harmonise with God’s desires for your life and you can pray that his will be done. You cannot do this on your own. You need the Holy Spirit.
Lord, thank You for helping me to quiet down and spend time reading your words today. Continue to speak to me, dear God.
Peel away the layers of superficiality and reveal what is real and gnawing inside of me.
Holy Spirit, anoint me with wisdom. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
Lord, I pray for your church. Forgive us where we have fallen asleep and are giving off a bad odour. We know you are deeply moved by the situation, that you weep over the church, and that you will act out of love.
Lord, would you bring new life. May we see the church come alive all across the nations.
Your Hope in Times of Trouble (Day 140) #BiOY
Lord, fill me with streams of living water, satisfy my thirst, break every bondage and help me like Jesus, to demonstrate not only the power of the Spirit, but also the fruit of the wonderful Holy Spirit in my daily life.
This is to be my daily prayer!
