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 Timothy Chapter 1


Greetings from Paul

This  letter is from Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus, appointed by the  command of God our Savior and Christ Jesus, who gives us hope.

2 I am writing to Timothy, my true son in the faith.

May God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord give you grace, mercy, and peace.


Warnings against False Teachings

3 When I left for Macedonia, I urged you to stay there in Ephesus and stop those whose teaching is contrary to the truth. 4 Don’t  let them waste their time in endless discussion of myths and spiritual  pedigrees. These things only lead to meaningless speculations, which don’t help people live a life of faith in God.

5 The  purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with  love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine  faith. 6 But  some people have missed this whole point. They have turned away from  these things and spend their time in meaningless discussions. 7 They  want to be known as teachers of the law of Moses, but they don’t know  what they are talking about, even though they speak so confidently.

8 We know that the law is good when used correctly. 9 For  the law was not intended for people who do what is right. It is for  people who are lawless and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who  consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who kill their father  or mother or commit other murders. 10 The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality, or are slave traders, liars, promise breakers, or who do anything else that contradicts the wholesome teaching 11 that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.


Paul’s Gratitude for God’s Mercy

12 I  thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength to do his work.  He considered me trustworthy and appointed me to serve him, 13 even  though I used to blaspheme the name of Christ. In my insolence, I  persecuted his people. But God had mercy on me because I did it in  ignorance and unbelief. 14 Oh, how generous and gracious our Lord was! He filled me with the faith and love that come from Christ Jesus.

15 This  is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: “Christ Jesus  came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them all. 16 But  God had mercy on me so that Christ Jesus could use me as a prime  example of his great patience with even the worst sinners. Then others  will realize that they, too, can believe in him and receive eternal  life. 17 All honor and glory to God forever and ever! He is the eternal King, the unseen one who never dies; he alone is God. Amen.


Timothy’s Responsibility

18 Timothy,  my son, here are my instructions for you, based on the prophetic words  spoken about you earlier. May they help you fight well in the Lord’s  battles. 19 Cling  to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear. For some  people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their  faith has been shipwrecked. 20 Hymenaeus  and Alexander are two examples. I threw them out and handed them over  to Satan so they might learn not to blaspheme God.
