Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,  

  • God, I stand in awe of you. Regardless of where I’m at - YOU - are amazing. Everything that exists came out of you. Everything exists at your pleasure and for your purpose. You made me, you love me and I am yours. I am yours and you are mine and I worship you – forever.   ​

Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.​   

  • Jesus, come back here and fix this NOW. Solve every problem and heal every hurt. Bring God’s best to every-one of us. Until you come back to reign physically; reign spiritually in us in greater ways. Fill us all with your grace and revelation.

  • God, send me ONE person today to share your love with.  

Give us this day our daily bread

  • ​God, I look to you for everything (physical, financial, emotional and spiritual). Give me all I need to be blessed & to be a Blessing.  (pray specifically for needs)  

  • All creatures look to you to give them their food at the proper time. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.  When you hide your face, they are terrified; Ps 104:27-29

 

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us

  • God, it’s my sin I’m concerned about and no one else’s.  As I release others please forgive and release me from the consequences of my sins and failures. (Pray for those who’ve harmed you)  

Lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from the evil one

  • God, now that I’m free from all punishment, don’t let me use my freedom to walk into a trap.  Don’t let me go down destructive roads today, especially the ones that I want to go on. Lead me on the path of life today.  

  • To him who is able to keep you from falling and to bring you faultless and joyful before his glorious presence. Jude 1:24

                                                                      

BY HIS WOUNDS WE ARE HEALED​​ Isaiah 53:5

1 Peter Chapter 4


Living for God

So  then, since Christ suffered physical pain, you must arm yourselves with  the same attitude he had, and be ready to suffer, too. For if you have  suffered physically for Christ, you have finished with sin. 2 You won’t spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God. 3 You  have had enough in the past of the evil things that godless people  enjoy—their immorality and lust, their feasting and drunkenness and wild  parties, and their terrible worship of idols.

4 Of  course, your former friends are surprised when you no longer plunge  into the flood of wild and destructive things they do. So they slander  you. 5 But remember that they will have to face God, who stands ready to judge everyone, both the living and the dead. 6 That is why the Good News was preached to those who are now dead—so although they were destined to die like all people, they now live forever with God in the Spirit.

7 The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore, be earnest and disciplined in your prayers. 8 Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay.

10 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. 11 Do  you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were  speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with  all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do  will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him  forever and ever! Amen.


Suffering for Being a Christian

12 Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. 13 Instead,  be very glad—for these trials make you partners with Christ in his  suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory  when it is revealed to all the world.

14 If you are insulted because you bear the name of Christ, you will be blessed, for the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you. 15 If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs. 16 But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by his name! 17 For  the time has come for judgment, and it must begin with God’s household.  And if judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who  have never obeyed God’s Good News? 18 And also,

“If the righteous are barely saved,
what will happen to godless sinners?”

19 So  if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what  is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will  never fail you.
