ZEAL FOR HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS
Psalm 119:128, 136, 139, 142, 163-164

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will have a deep hunger and thirst for God’s righteousness and truth. May you consider all His precepts right and deeply love His law. I pray that you will be zealous for His righteousness, and that you will stay away from every wrong path. May you be filled with God’s favor as you live by His precepts, for the Lord’s righteousness is everlasting and His law is true. I pray that your life will be a testimony of His righteous laws, and you will praise His holy name!

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Carry it Two Miles.

If a soldier demands that you carry his gear for a mile, carry it two miles.

~ Matthew 5:41 [NLT]

When we’re assigned tasks to complete, it is sometimes easier to take the path of least resistance. The easiest route is not always the course of action God would have you take. As Christians, we are called to go above and beyond the task at hand, and to go the extra mile to demonstrate the love we have for others.

DOING GOD’S WORK
Matthew 9:35-38

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will look to the multitudes of people who need Christ in their lives, and be moved by compassion to do the work of the Lord. May you teach them about the life of Christ and proclaim to them the good news of the Kingdom. I pray that when you see the crowd, you will see them with the eyes of Jesus. May you be a witness to them, telling them that only Jesus can meet their needs. May you have pity on the harassed and helpless, and those who are lost like sheep without a shepherd. May you ask the Lord, therefore, to send you out as His worker, for the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

JESUS’ FRIEND
John 15:15; James 4:4

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will enter into a close, intimate relationship with Jesus. May you understand that He does not call you a servant, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, He calls you His friend, for everything He has learned from the Father, He makes known to you. I pray that you will accept Christ’s offer of friendship which He extends to you. May you remember, also, that friendship with the world is hatred toward God. I pray that you will choose to be Christ’s friend today.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

RESIST UNGODLY THOUGHTS
2 Corinthians 10:5; James 4:7

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will train your mind to resist impure thoughts. Submit your thoughts to God; resist the devil and he will flee from you. May you learn to demolish arguments and every pretension that aims to destroy the knowledge of God. I pray that you will bring every thought and every imagination captive to make it obedient to Christ. May you experience growth in every area of your life as you resist ungodly thoughts.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

SURPASSING LOVE
Ephesians 3:16-19

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that, out of His glorious riches, God may fill your inner being with the power of His Holy Spirit. May He fill you so that, through faith, Christ may dwell in your heart. I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. May you know this love that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

LIFE OF ORDER
Psalm 16:5-6; Ecclesiastes 7:18; 1 Corinthians 14:33

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will restore and maintain order in your life. In your relationships, may you restore the broken ties and cut the ungodly relations. In your work, may you align your plans to God’s and do all things in an orderly and fitting way. In your finances, may you pay all your debts and learn godly ways of using your wealth. Realize that our God is not a God of disorder, but of peace. He defines boundary lines to maintain order in your life. I pray that you will respect these boundaries; avoid all extremes, and you shall enjoy the delightful inheritance God has for you.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

FATHER’S INSTRUCTION
Proverbs 4:1-4

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will listen to your father’s instruction. May you pay attention to what he teaches you so you will gain understanding. Lay hold of His words in your heart that you may live life to the fullest. I pray that you will remember the wisdom He passes on to you, so that in times of need you may draw from it. May God bless you with wisdom as you heed your father’s instructions today.

KEEP HIS WAYS

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will always keep the ways of the Lord and never turn away from them. May you follow all His laws that He has laid out before you. I pray that you will resist sin. I claim the Lord’s reward for you according to your righteousness. May you remain faithful and blameless, as He is faithful and blameless. I pray that you will be humble, for He brings low those whose eyes are haughty. May God give you the grace to keep His ways.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Blessed Are The …

Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight!

~ Psalm 32:1 [NLT]

Thankfully, God reminds us that we can go to Him when we MESS UP and this amazing great exchange happens. He swaps our brokenness for beauty. It really feels too good to be true! That’s the deal God made when we sent Jesus to die in our place. We now can be considered blessed or happy when we go to God with our sins! God’s grace is available to us even in the midst of our worst parenting mistakes.
