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

2 Corinthians Chapter 11


Paul and the False Apostles

I hope you will put up with a little more of my foolishness. Please bear with me. 2 For I am jealous for you with the jealousy of God himself. I promised you as a pure bride to one husband—Christ. 3 But  I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be  corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent. 4 You  happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a  different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different kind of Spirit  than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one  you believed.

5 But I don’t consider myself inferior in any way to these “super apostles” who teach such things. 6 I may be unskilled as a speaker, but I’m not lacking in knowledge. We have made this clear to you in every possible way.

7 Was I wrong when I humbled myself and honored you by preaching God’s Good News to you without expecting anything in return? 8 I “robbed” other churches by accepting their contributions so I could serve you at no cost. 9 And  when I was with you and didn’t have enough to live on, I did not become  a financial burden to anyone. For the brothers who came from Macedonia  brought me all that I needed. I have never been a burden to you, and I  never will be. 10 As surely as the truth of Christ is in me, no one in all of Greece will ever stop me from boasting about this. 11 Why? Because I don’t love you? God knows that I do.

12 But  I will continue doing what I have always done. This will undercut those  who are looking for an opportunity to boast that their work is just  like ours. 13 These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 So  it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants  of righteousness. In the end they will get the punishment their wicked  deeds deserve.


Paul’s Many Trials

16 Again  I say, don’t think that I am a fool to talk like this. But even if you  do, listen to me, as you would to a foolish person, while I also boast a  little. 17 Such boasting is not from the Lord, but I am acting like a fool. 18 And since others boast about their human achievements, I will, too. 19 After all, you think you are so wise, but you enjoy putting up with fools! 20 You  put up with it when someone enslaves you, takes everything you have,  takes advantage of you, takes control of everything, and slaps you in  the face. 21 I’m ashamed to say that we’ve been too “weak” to do that!

But whatever they dare to boast about—I’m talking like a fool again—I dare to boast about it, too. 22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they descendants of Abraham? So am I. 23 Are  they servants of Christ? I know I sound like a madman, but I have  served him far more! I have worked harder, been put in prison more  often, been whipped times without number, and faced death again and  again. 24 Five different times the Jewish leaders gave me thirty-nine lashes. 25 Three  times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I was  shipwrecked. Once I spent a whole night and a day adrift at sea. 26 I  have traveled on many long journeys. I have faced danger from rivers  and from robbers. I have faced danger from my own people, the Jews, as  well as from the Gentiles. I have faced danger in the cities, in the  deserts, and on the seas. And I have faced danger from men who claim to  be believers but are not. 27 I  have worked hard and long, enduring many sleepless nights. I have been  hungry and thirsty and have often gone without food. I have shivered in  the cold, without enough clothing to keep me warm.

28 Then, besides all this, I have the daily burden of my concern for all the churches. 29 Who is weak without my feeling that weakness? Who is led astray, and I do not burn with anger?

30 If I must boast, I would rather boast about the things that show how weak I am. 31 God, the Father of our Lord Jesus, who is worthy of eternal praise, knows I am not lying. 32 When I was in Damascus, the governor under King Aretas kept guards at the city gates to catch me. 33 I had to be lowered in a basket through a window in the city wall to escape from him.
