Tragedy in Budapest
Father in heaven we thank you for loving us. You know more about me than I know about myself. Thank you for hearing us. We can come to you with all our burdens.
We pray for rain.
Pray for all leaders that you would give them a heart of wisdom from you. Give them a passion for righteousness.
Give Christians your passion and fervor.
Pray that the kingdom would reach all areas of the world.
Pray for hurting families. Health issues. Grief. Korean families. Where there is despair we pray for hope. In Jesus name, amen.
For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, Now the church is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.
Ephesians 1:15, 23 NET
Many are looking for the perfect job. 11.7 careers or jobs per lifetime.
We have been blessed.
I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you spiritual wisdom and revelation in your growing knowledge of him, – since the eyes of your heart have been enlightened – so that you may know what is the hope of his calling, what is the wealth of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the incomparable greatness of his power toward us who believe, as displayed in the exercise of his immense strength. This power he exercised in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms far above every rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.
Ephesians 1:17-21 NET
I am where I am because of where Christ has placed me.
What a powerful prayer. 2 boys spent Christmas at grandparents. New Year's eve Mrs. Santa would come. The younger boy prayed real load for a smart watch because grandma was hard of hearing.
Paul prays that the Ephesians would get to know Jesus better. Only God can give it to them. Not for selfish reasons.
1. 17 keep asking
1. Know him better. A relationship. Devotions often don't reflect a good relationship with God. 30 seconds of prayer. Poor relationship. Share the heart of life. 100%
A couple I know- he starts a sentence and she completes it. Every time. That's how we should know Jesus.
Thank you Lord that you are in me. Lord help me getting to know Christ better. Thank him.
2. Know the hope to what he has called you. Not wishful thinking. It's true. God gives us hope.
I've never been as old as now. I'll never be as young as now.
3. Know the inheritance. Jesus has given us righteousness. We are one with Christ. He has your heart to do his work through you. Who are the people in our neighborhood? As we're walking down the street?
Whatever is over our head is under His feet. 3 times Jesus said satan is ruling this world. Jesus is above all rulers. Satan will be banished.
Bad things happen to good people. It's a fallen world. In Christ we are safe.
Your security is in Him.
Pray these things into our lives.
