WORK WITH DILIGENCE

I pray that you will work hard today, diligently laboring on the tasks God has given you. May you go about your work, as if you were doing it for God and not for man. May you not overlook important details and complete each task in an efficient and excellent manner. I pray that God will give you vigor when the enemy tries to make you lazy or sluggish, may you be focused on your work, not chasing after fantasies, but doing everything with sound judgment. May God be glorified when others witness your diligence.

Turning Point

Isaiah 1:18 (NLT]
Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord,“ 
Though your sins are like scarlet,They shall be as white as snow; 
Though they are red like crimson, 
They shall be as wool.

We’ve all met them: married couples who have been together so long they can finish each other’s sentences. They even give each other a sideways glance if one hears the other saying something that “doesn’t sound like you.” There’s no fooling people who know each other intimately.

God knows us intimately, but something else knows us just as intimately. And that is the Word of God. God is obviously “living and powerful,” but so is His Word. God can discern the “thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12) and so can His Word. Which is one of the benefits of reading Scripture consistently—to show us who we really are on the inside. And when we encounter a verse that lets us know we have fallen short of God’s glory, we can immediately go to God in confessional prayer and be forgiven.

Let the Word be a mirror for your heart. And let God cleanse you of any thought or intent that is not pleasing to Him.
We can’t really tell how crooked our thinking is until we line it up with the straight edge of Scripture.
~ Elisabeth Elliot

Evening Prayer

REMEMBER HIS TEACHINGS
Proverbs 3:1-4

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

I pray that you will never forget the Lord’s teachings, but will keep them in your heart. Remember His commands, for they will prolong your life and bring you prosperity. I pray that you will never let love and faithfulness leave you. May you bind them around your neck and write them on the tablet of your heart, then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. I pray that you will always remember His teachings, and that His favor will go with you.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Evening Prayer

GODS WONDROUS PLANS 
Jeremiah. 29:11; Romans 12:2

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

I pray that you will realize that God has a wonderful destiny in store for you. May you understand that He knows the plans He has for you, that they are plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Knowing that God desires to give you a hope and a wondrous future, may your eyes be opened to His plans and purposes for your life. May you then realize that the plans you have for yourself are nothing compared to His. May you have the strength and conviction to abandon any plan that is not aligned with God’s will for you. I pray that as you submit to Him, you will know His good, pleasing and perfect will.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

THE POWER OF GOD’S WORD  
Psalm 18:30; Proverbs 1:2-5, 7

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

I pray that you will earnestly seek the Word, for it is only through His Word that you can attain true wisdom. From His Word, may you learn discretion and the capacity to understand words of insight. Through His  Word and the wisdom it gives, may you acquire a prudent and disciplined life. The Word of God is flawless; may you delight with the Lord as you read God’s Word.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
