Evening Prayer

I pray that you will give thanks to the Lord for He has set you apart from birth and revealed His Son to you in a personal way. May you understand that with knowing Christ, you are entrusted with the task of sharing the gospel to those who do not know Him. Since He has called you by His grace, I pray that you will joyfully and patiently share the truth of this good news. I pray you will be sensitive to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and that He will give you divine appointments and open doors to share the gospel.

In Jesus' Name, Amen.

May you know that you are now a child of God, identified by your righteousness. May you remember that a child of God is heir to the great riches contained in His promises. I pray that you will continue to live a life worthy of being called God's child, and that you will inherit the great riches of your Father's glory.

In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Evening Prayer

I pray that you will embrace the challenging but glorious life of a disciple of Christ. May you understand that in spite of difficult circumstances, you will not be crushed. Though the world may strike you down, may you trust that you will not be destroyed, because you know that the one who raised our Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise you with Jesus. Therefore, I pray that you will do not lose heart. I pray that you will have the wisdom and the grace to face the challenges of a disciple, knowing that you are being renewed day by day, for the glory and praise of our Lord.

Evening Devotional

By Faith, Not Feeling

 

For the righteousness of God is revealed in the gospel from faith to faith, just as it is written, “The righteous by faith will live.”

[Rom 1:17]

I shall not die, I can, I do, believe in the Lord my God, and this faith will keep me alive. I would be numbered among those who in their lives are just; but even if I were perfect I would not try to live by my righteousness; I would cling to the work of the Lord Jesus and still live by faith in Him and by nothing else. If I were able to give my body to be burned for my Lord Jesus, yet I would not trust in my own courage and constancy, but still would live by faith.

Were I a martyr at the stake

I’d plead my Saviour’s name;

Intreat a pardon for His sake,

And urge no other claim.

To live by faith is a far surer and happier thing than to live by feelings or by works. The branch, by living in the vine, lives a better life than it would live by itself, even if it were possible for it to live at all apart from the stem. To live by clinging to Jesus, by deriving all from Him, is a sweet and sacred thing. If even the most just must live in this fashion, how much more must I who am a poor sinner! Lord, I believe. I must trust Thee wholly. What else can I do? Trusting Thee is my life….

~ Charles Spurgeon ~

Evening Prayer

I pray that as you excel in faith, speech, knowledge, and in your love for others, may you also excel in the grace of giving. I pray that you will follow example of Christ, who gave all He had – even His life, out of His love for you. Even though He was rich, He became poor for your sake, so that through His poverty you may become rich. Just like Christ, may you excel in giving, and may you give with a cheerful heart.

In Jesus' Name, Amen.
