PRAYING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY
Although we are unable to control the attitude of others towards ourselves, we are to deal with situations in a most biblical manner. None of us can prevent another person from despising us or expressing contempt towards us, but we are to be responsible for the way that we react to any negative attitude others may show towards us.
In every area of life, we are to demonstrate the same, spiritual maturity in the way we live, the words we speak, the things we do, and the way we react to others in these difficult and challenging times. Our behavior, attitude, actions, and motives should be pure and holy, and should demonstrate the godly wisdom that only comes from above.
Let us all Seek To Display Godly Characteristics in our lives and have a teachable spirit that seeks to honor the Lord in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity, and may we show ourselves to be a godly example of those who around us daily.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wisdom and instruction that we gain from tis verse in Timothy. May we look to Jesus, day by day, and stand firm in the faith, holding fast to the truth of the gospel of grace. Help us not to be offended by the actions or attitudes of others towards us, but rather, may our speech and conduct be honoring to You, and may we serve You in faith and purity. Help us to be a godly example to those with whom we have contact with daily, for Your holy name's sake, and greater glory. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
All those that are blood-bought children of God and who are walking in fellowship with the Lord Jesus can be said to be walking in the truth of His Word. For those that are born again and living in fellowship with the Lord are those that are living their life in through their new, born-again spirit (their new life) and not living as carnal believers who continue to live their Christian lives under the influence of the old sin nature.
There is an ongoing attack on the truth. People talk about 'my truth' and 'your truth' as relativism runs rampant and actual truth is pushed out of society. But There Is Only One Truth and His name is Jesus: "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." Let us plant our feet firmly in the truth and teach our children about Him.
Nothing is more thrilling for a Christian parent, or a believer who has been influential in pointing one younger in the faith to the truth of the gospel, than to see them living according to the truth, walking in fellowship with the Lord Jesus, living in submission to the Holy Spirit's guiding hand, living under the influence of the new person in Christ (and not the old sin nature), and reflecting the grace, truth, love, and humility that flows to them from their Savior.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
Our United Prayer:
Loving Father, thank You that we are Your children and thank You for those people in Christ that You have placed in our lives to shepherd and guide. We pray that all our 'children' - those newer brothers and sisters in Christ, may live according to Your truth. In Jesus' name we pray, AMEN.
There are three specific things that the Christian has been instructed to overcome the world, the flesh, and the devil. In each case, we have been equipped with the tools to do just that. We submit ourselves to God and resist the devil, he will flee from us.
The short answer to overcoming the works of the flesh is to walk in the spirit and adhere to the truth. The Word of God gives many helpful instructions on how to be filled with the spirit so that the lusts of the flesh will be starved of their sinful desires.
As members of Christ's Body, we are accepted by God and have also overcome the world by faith in the Beloved Son of God.
By Our Faith In Christ, we have overcome the ungodly world system that is saturated in sin and seeks to entrap us all in its many and varied temptations and enticements. God has given us all we need to not only overcome the world but also to overcome the flesh and the devil. Let us live and work to His praise and glory, He alone deserves all the honor and glory, He alone is worthy.
for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus and His sacrificial work on the Cross. Thank You that He has already overcome the world and that by faith in Him, we too are overcomers. Thank You that we have been born of the Spirit and have been clothed in His righteousness, and thank You that we are accepted in Christ. May we submit our lives to You entirely and live each day in spirit and truth, to Your praise and glory. This we ask in Jesus' name. AMEN.
As Christians, we are to be pure in our inner hearts and holy in our outer lives. As children of God, we are to be driven to be as perfect as our Father in heaven. In this Church Age, we are given ample teachings on how to live the Christian life so that we are inwardly pure, outwardly holy, and set apart unto the Lord.
Wives are instructed to be subject to their husbands while husbands are to love their wives. Children are to be obedient to their parents while fathers are to correct but not embitter their children.
No matter what status or position we hold, at home or abroad, we are to do everything with dignity, humility, and to the glory of God "knowing that from the Lord we will receive the reward of the inheritance, because the Lord Christ is the One Whom we serve."
When we fulfil our roles and responsibilities in our own family and within our wider community as instructed in His Word, we will certainly receive the reward of our inheritance but if we choose to ignore the Lord's instructions and walk in fleshly ways, He will judge us righteously and without favoritism. We are to serve the Lord, not a Preacher, a group of Deacons or Priests or even a Church, we are to serve the Lord.
May we take to heart the practical instruction and godly guidance on the interpersonal roles and the relationships that are outlined in this verse and do all to the glory of God "knowing that from the Lord we will receive the reward of the inheritance because The Lord Christ Is The One Whom We Serve."
since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You that our eternal salvation is secure in Christ. Thank You that by faith in Him our sins have been forgiven, forever. We pray that we may live our lives to Your praise and glory and that, whether at home or in the wider world, we walk in humble obedience before You and do everything as unto the Lord. Thank You for Christ Who gave His life for us. We Pray that in everything we say and do, we may live my life for Him, in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
The closer we get to the close of the Church Age, the more we recognize this prophetic word from Paul coming to pass. We See An Evolving Gospel which focusses on a feel-good factor and we hear of ungodly aberration in the Body of Christ. Some teach a prosperity gospel with its accompanying unbiblical 'word of faith' declarations and positive proclamations, together with an emerging church where Scripture is altered to tickle the ears of foolish men and women.
Some falsely teach a universal salvation, where everyone is eventually saved or that there are many ways to God. There are also those that follow secular philosophies and promote an unbiblical worldview where Bible prophecy is ignored or twisted and extra biblical teachings are promoted, while others are encouraged to live a purpose-driven life through a socialite gospel.
Many like to focus on social changes in the community while denigrating the gospel of Christ, the salvation of the lost, and spiritual maturity, while others continue to teach an equally concerning works-based religion, rather that a grace-based faith which too often promotes the unbiblical teaching called 'replacement theology'
Let us all study to show ourselves approved unto God and take to heart the whole council of God so that we are not led astray in these increasingly evil and godless times.
For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, keep us low at the Cross and looking to Jesus. Protect our hearts and minds from the huge numbers of false teachers and unbiblical doctrines that are flooding the Church today. Help us to identify false teachings and distorted doctrines and we pray that we may flee from the increasing amount of ungodly, unbiblical, and extra-biblical teachings that are flooding the Christian world today. We pray that we may live worthy of our calling in Christ, and live our lives to His praise and glory. In Jesus' name we pray, AMEN.
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
