Prayer Day – We are IN CHRIST

772289_51863461-1

 

Lord,

You are good. You are holy. You are worthy of all of our devotion, sacrifice, praise, worship, desire, reverence, awe and love. You alone are sovereign. You are the King of kings and Lord of lords. You hold every atom and every galaxy in Your hands. Your purposes cannot be thwarted. You accomplish all that You desire to accomplish in Your universe. We are in awe of Your creation, Your wisdom, Your holiness, Your unending love, Your unspeakable mercy and grace.

I lift up every woman and man who reads this blog and every person who belongs to You around the world. Draw us closer to Yourself. Open our eyes to the spiritual treasures and truths of Your Word. Open our eyes to our sin. Let us repent of every trace of sin both individually and corporately. Cleanse us. Send a Great Movement of Your Spirit among us to cause us in this generation to rise up to become a holy, godly, righteous generation by Your power and for Your glory. Help us to see the lies of the world and the enemy. Let us embrace Your truth. Let us completely submit our lives to You in total obedience and trust. Empower us to be faithful to You and to love You with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength. And let us love others with the very love of God.

Use us to shine brightly for Christ in our homes, in our families, in our churches, in our neighborhoods at our jobs and everywhere we go. Let the things of this earth become unimportant to us and let the things of heaven, the things that matter to You, Your desires, Your will, Your priorities, Your wisdom, Your purposes, Your passions become our greatest desires and priorities.

I pray for healing for each soul here. I pray for Your healing for each marriage and family who is troubled by sin, temptation, disease,  trial, suffering and pain. I trust each one into Your sovereign, loving hands. Grant us BIG faith in You, Lord! I pray for You to cause all of these things to work for Your glory and our ultimate good. I pray for those who are not believers among us and for unbelieving spouses and children to come to You and to know You and to possess Your eternal life. I pray for You to make us more and more like Jesus. Help us to embrace You even in the difficult times and help us to learn everything we can and to absorb Your truth. Make us more and more like Christ. Let Your perfect will be done in each of our lives. Let us abide in You continually and live in the center of Your resurrection power. Let us know that we, our old sinful selves, are dead in Christ – buried with Him 2000 years ago. Let us understand that we are dead to this world and alive to God in Christ. Open our eyes to understand what glory this means for us! Let us live in Your power and in Your life. Let us stay near You. Nourish us with Your Word and flood our souls with Your Spirit. Let us desire You more than anything and let us be content in You alone. Let us understand that sin no longer has power over us because of what You did to sin on the cross. And let us understand that we are raised to walk in new life with You – that we are alive to You and dead to sin and the world. Let us live in this glorious truth every moment of every day, thanking and praising You for what You have done for us in Christ. You destroyed our sin. You destroyed our sinful nature. You have given us a new life and new hearts and a new Spirit. Thank You for all you have done – show us how to walk in Your power moment by moment in the victory You have already won for us in Christ.

In the Name and power of Christ,

Amen!

  1. Amen! May God be glorified in and thru His children. Thank you Lord for using Greg and April Cassidy to minister to hurting hearts that are bonded in marriage and their families that are affected by their actions. Bless the ministries you given them to edify your body. May you be glorified in all the earth on this great day.

  2. 1 Corinthians 3:11-15 New King James Version (NKJV)
    “11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.” The enemy tries each day to lure us into taking shortcuts, building our lives on illusion instead of truth. The Lord is my Rock and Fortress! Thank you, Heavenly Father, for your blessings bestowed upon us out of perfect, immeasurable love!

  3. Learning who I was in Christ ten years ago changed my life. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I am complete in Him. It was all finished at the cross. I rest in this. Wonderful, encouraging post.

  4. Thank you, April, for praying so beautifully over all of us! My prayer for you is that the blessings of God will flow to your family and that He will cover each of you with his protection and peace.

  5. Hey April! It is a bit off-topic, but if you could support me in prayer, that would be wonderful. My husband and I help out foreign students with a Christian fellowship, and there are two very promising and responsible looking young leaders among students. We put our hearts into these young people and congregation, my husband preaches to them from time to time, several times we brought up the subject of sexual purity and damaging effect of sexual immorality, and then last Sunday we found out that one of the leaders committed fornication and the girl got pregnant :(. And it looks that if she had not gone pregnant, he would not have told anyone about that :’-(. I just feel crushed, my heart has been aching a lot these past days. :’-(. The guy just kept crying on Sunday, but after a brief talk with him, I don’t know if he was crying because he was repenting or if he was crying because this all came to light. So painful. I keep begging the Lord to solve this, but for now I am left devastated and heartbroken :(.

    1. Anna,

      So heartbreaking!!!!! Sin is always very painful. 🙁 praying for God to work even through this situation to draw these precious young people to Himself and for true regeneration.

My grandmother is on hospice and won't be with us much longer (11-30-16). I will get to comments when I am able to but I need to be with family right now. Thanks for understanding.
