“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that for outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NIV)
“The greatest man in history, named Jesus, had no servants, yet they called Him Master. Had no degree yet they called Him Teacher. He had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime yet they crucified Him—He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today!”
Lyle C Rollins III
“For every fear, there is an empty grave.” ~Steven Furtick
An empty grave was what they found. An empty grave!!! Hallelujah!! You are so much bigger than anything the world could have thrown at You. This is our celebration not just on the day we call Easter, but every single day.
You conquered the grave. You defeated death. You took our sins and covered them with Your precious, untainted and pure blood. How can we ever give You enough of our thanks? This needs to be our daily thought. Lord, we need to share with the world that even though the holiday of eggs and bunnies is over, the cross still stands, the grave is still empty and our Savior who chose to shed His blood for us is forever our King on High seated next to our Eternal Father God. Praise hands lifted high!!!
Help us to live in the Word of God, meditating on it day and night by reading it every day and memorizing portions to carry with us all day and savoring them hour by hour. We want our prayers to be shaped by Your holy Word, not influenced by the chaos of the world. To be in the Word rightly is to be in prayer. When faith and the Word shape prayer, we are praying in the Holy Spirit. When we pray in the Holy Spirit, we keep ourselves in the love of God. There is where we find that every blessing in heaven will be ours.
WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH LORD!
In Your glorious name we pray,
Most marvelous Heavenly Father,
Thank You for giving us another day to serve You! Lord You are so good to us!! Your gift of the Holy Spirit is such a blessing! Baptize us in His power. Focus us on keeping Him in every aspect of our lives. As believers may He come alive in us giving us revelation, inspiration, illumination, spiritual discernment and courage to get out there and share The Holy Word of God.
May The Holy Spirit be the overflowing Goodness and encouragement for our souls, giving us the strength to persevere in this fallen world. Precious Lord, we are so thankful that The Holy Spirit gives us direction to live a life as You would have us live. We do not want to be in control. We need You. Use us however You see fit. May we never be the same. May we be by faith, filled with Your joy, Your love and Your peace. You are essential to our lives. May every breath we take be used to glorify You!
Holy Spirit, You are welcome here with us, for we have been redeemed by the blood of The Lamb and are here to serve You. We love You Father.
Sweet Lord God,
As we continue our 31 days of prayer, we will give all honor and praise to You. We call on You with genuine faith that You hear our prayers. We know that You are the only one who can lead this world and guide us in a way that is pleasing to You. We ask for Your blessings for this country. May we learn to stand together and pray together to heal our land.
We pray for all those who can make positive changes in our society, those in positions of authority, that they will use their influence to help others not themselves. That they will make their decisions with wisdom and discernment.
Lord God, we pray for our churches. May our spiritual leaders hear Your voice as they share the holy Word. We pray that they will lead from their knees and not from Facebook or Instagram likes. That they may know Your heart and share truth in a way that the power of the Lord will be seen as never before.
Please protect and bless all our service men and women. We are so incredibly grateful for their service and dedication. Lord, many of them have sacrificed their blood to keep not only this country safe but innocent people around the world. God bless our troops.
Lord hear our humble prayer, in Your holy name together we pray,
Precious Heavenly Father,
We thank You for this glorious morning!! We praise You and give thanks for Your mercy on us. This day is fabulous because it is another chance for us to share with others the incredible joy of having You as our Father. We are so crazy blessed!!
Lord God, we want to grow in our faith and in our love for You. We know that growing deeper can be hard. We have to truly look into ourselves and change from who we WERE BEFORE You, into who we can be WITH You. We pray Lord God that You will reveal to us where we have been straying and open our hearts and eyes to the changes that need to happen, with TRUE REPENTANCE as our response to our sins. Eternal Father God, Your way is all we desire. Keep us on the road to righteousness!!
Your children pray humbly,
Oh Lord God,
Such a gorgeous morning you have painted for us!! Your love for us makes everything brighter! We want to do the same. Help us to make our world brighter. Help us to do what is right in Your eyes. May we see all our actions and reactions to our daily life through Your eyes, that we become more like You in our lifestyles. Search our hearts Lord, convict us of our sins. Help us see what breaks Your heart in our lives so that we can change to a better path. Yes Lord God, the path to You!! That is where we want to be!! We know this path may be narrow and difficult sometimes, but there is such joy walking with You. Keep our eyes focused on You Lord, for there is none other. You are our greatest gift.
We love You Lord.
