Estimated Reading Time: 16 minutes

Pray fervently and without ceasing. These are commands to Christians. I love these commands because it reinforces the power we have in Christ Jesus and it also reinforces that God expects diligence from His people. Prayer is hope that manifests, if you are a true Christ believer. He answers the prayers of His children. Remember ladies, Paul suggests that a woman ought to cover her head when she prays and remember to pray when you are not distracted so that you can worship in spirit and in truth.  Also, it is best to pray in secret.

Pray without ceasing. ~1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV

God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. ~John 4:24 KJV

The Lord is far from the wicked: but He heareth the prayer of the righteous. ~Proverbs 15:29 KJV

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. ~1 Peter 3:12 KJV

Heavenly Father, we boldly and fearfully come before You. Your Name is precious and holy. Your kingdom come, Your will be done in earth as it is in heaven. Please hear our requests.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. ~3 John 1:2 KJV

[6] But godliness with contentment is great gain. [7] For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [8] And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. [9] But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. [10] For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. [11] But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. ~1 Timothy 6:6-11 KJV

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. ~James 5:16 KJV

We ask that you would teach the saints how to be humble and love one another like a God-fearing family. We ask that those inclined to stay in their comfort zone would be moved into a new place that would help their heart to expand in love or in repentance. We ask that You change the hearts of those inclined to blame others when they’ve been confronted with their sin when they should examine themselves in order to embrace reconciliation and apologize.

You do not enter into temptation

Just like Jesus commanded His disciples, we pray, O Lord that You would keep us from temptation and that if we are tempted, that we would recognize it and flee into the arms of righteousness.

[40] And when He was at the place, He said unto them, “Pray that ye enter not into temptation.” ~Luke 22:40 KJV

[41] Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. ~Matthew 26:41 KJV

Moses gave God’s song to the Israelites to remind them that after he died, they would soon forget God because they were in a good place. We pray, O Lord, that after we have sought the kingdom and Your righteousness and then begin receiving all the blessings that You lavish upon us, we pray that we will not be tempted to return to a sinful nature, like the Israelites were, nor forget You, nor forget to labor to remain in Your holiness, nor forget to fear You because we find ourselves in a good place. We pray to abound in good works and in your grace as our soul abounds. We humbly request all of these things in Jesus’ name. Thank You for Your long-suffering, mercy, and great patience upon us. Thank You for everything You do for us. You are worthy and awesome forevermore. May our lives bless You and be a shining testimony forevermore. Amen ♥
