Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever.

Amen.

Heavenly!



The Heart of a Child

Grant me this day, O God, the heart of a child,
Pure and transparent as a spring;

A simple heart, which never harbors sorrows;
A heart glorious in self-giving,
tender in compassion;
A heart faithful and generous,
which will never forget any good
or bear a grudge for any evil.

Make me a heart gentle and humble,
loving without asking any return,
large-hearted and undauntable,
which no ingratitude can sour
and no indifference can weary;
a heart penetrated by the love of Jesus
whose desire will only be satisfied in heaven.

Grant me, O Lord, the mind and heart of your dear Son.

Amen.

For Forgiveness

O  gracious Lord, I am heartily sorry, and beg pardon for my sins, especially for my little respect, and for wandering in my thoughts when in your presence, and for my continual infidelitys to your graces; for all which I beg pardon, by the merits of the Blood you shed for them.

Amen.

Benediction

And now, as a little child, let me abide in you all this day, oh Christ, so that when you appear I may have confidence and not shrink from you in shame at your coming. For I know that you are righteous, and I am sure that I will be made righteous only by my life in you.

Amen.


Think of the day ahead in terms of God with you, and visualize health, strength, guidance, purity, calm confidence, and victory as the gifts of His presence.

The Samaritan Woman by Julio Romero de Torres, ca. 1910. Jesus and the Samarian woman (John 4), the first Gentile sinner to find Christ.

Psalm 119:57-60 (NKJV)

You are my portion, O Lord;
I have promised to obey your words.
I have sought your face with all my heart;
be gracious to me according to your promise.

I have considered my ways
and have turned my steps to your statutes.
I will hasten and not delay
to obey your commands.

Colossians 1:3-14 (ESV)

Praying for the Faith of Others

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints; the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel that has come to you.

All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God's grace in all its truth. You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on our behalf, and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.

And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.



Notes on the Scripture

C

olossians 1:9 tells us, “For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives.”

I wonder, how many times we hear of someone being saved, or see someone saved, and we never pray for that person. In my own life, I know how strong the enemy comes against us , once we decide to give our hearts to Jesus. You see before you make that decision, Satan doesn't really mess with you to much, because he knows he already has you.

Once you become a child of God, He sends all kinds of demons after you, illness, deaths in the family, financial burdens, temptations, to name a few. A new person in God, is weak, like a new born baby. They need milk, the word of God. They need prayer from Christians who are strong in the word, to help them fight off all that Satan throws at them. We need to continually ask God to fill them with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives.

How many people do you know, that you could pray this prayer for? They don't even have to be a new Christian, they could just still be weak and struggling to be what God wants them to be. God, forgive me where I have failed you in this. Help me to be a stronger Christian, so I can pray for others and help them grow stronger in you.

~ Rebecca Atteberry
