The Seventh Day
The seventh day was a day of rest. It was God's Sabbath, and He blessed it and made it holy. The Lord set apart the Sabbath unto Himself and it represented completion, perfection, and rest. God did not rest because He was weary but because He had finished creating a perfect world and was satisfied with all that He had done.
Had man not sinned in the garden, it is likely that God would still be resting today. But man did sin, which required God to begin working once again. However, the work in which the Lord is engaged today is the work of redemption. God's ongoing work today is the making of a new creation that is made in the image and likeness of Christ.
"So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation."
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus is our Sabbath rest and that in Him, we have peace with God and the peace of God that passes understanding. Thank You that we are a new creation in Christ, and eternal rest is the promised possession of all who have trusted in Him for salvation. We pray that many more will come to an understanding that faith in Christ’s sacrificial death and glorious Resurrection has secured for them eternal rest, if they will believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved. 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.
2 Corinthians 2:17
"Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God."
