Afternoon Prayer

“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.”

[Psalm 100:4]

Father God,

Today, I embrace the fact that even though I do not have riches, and the job that I have is not my dream, I am blessed. I will keep my head up and look down the road because I know You are not done with me yet.

Amen

Morning Devotional

I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.

[1 Corinthians 1:10]

Often we can get wrapped up in criticism and differences fellow Christians may have. By criticizing, does it really help us to further the Kingdom of Heaven? Sometimes we get ourselves tripped up and stumbling over unimportant issues. Perhaps, it’s the work of the enemy to take our eyes off of what is important, living a life that is pleasing to Christ. If you have a problem with fellow Christians, take a moment and examine the importance of your issue. Would Christ delight in your sacrifice of self-righteousness for unity?

Morning Prayer

RESPECT SPIRITUAL LEADERS

[1 Thessalonians 5:12-14]

I pray that you will always respect your spiritual leaders who work hard to build you up and guide you in your walk with God. May you hold them in highest regard; submit to them and to their authority. I also pray that you will not be an idle member of your church. May you share in the work of your leaders – encouraging the timid, helping the weak, and instructing the young in faith. May you be a productive member of your church, and may your contributions bring you joy and fulfillment.

In Jesus' Name, Amen.
