(Intentional Prayer)

Pray the Scriptures – My Prayer:

higher_than_the_heavens_203275317_larger

Lord, because I have been called by You, I will lead a life worthy of my calling. Teach me to always be humble and gentle. Honor my steps to be patient with others, making allowance for other’s faults because of my love, this Godly love that you have demonstrated towards me. Lord, I desire to make every effort to keep myself united in the Spirit, binding myself together with peace. For there is one body and one Spirit, just as I have been called to one glorious hope for the future.

Lord, Your Word tells me that there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all, in all, and living through all. However, He has given me a special gift through the generosity of Christ. That is why the Scriptures say, “When he ascended to the heights, He led a crowd of captives and gave gifts to His people.”

I could never repay for the gifts that have been passed on to me.

Thank You Lord that Christ also descended to my lowly world. And the same one who descended is the one who ascended higher than all the heavens, so that He might fill the entire universe with Himself.

My righteous King, I am overjoyed that You sent the One, the only One powerful enough to be whom He is, my great Redeemer, the Savior of my soul. You are a great God, amazingly undefiled. You are without fault and everything that comes from You is beyond anything that I could ever imagine or do for myself. Lord, I want to always remember that Jesus Christ, a descendant of King David, was raised from the dead. This is the Good News that I must share with others.

Thank You for being the One, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, who began the good work within me, and who will continue Your work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

You are the only One for me, my wonderful counselor, mighty God, and prince of peace.

This I pray in Jesus’ Name. Not my will but Your will be done. For Your Glory! Amen.

Scriptures:

(Pick Your Favorite Bible Translation)

Ephesians 4:1-10 (NLT)
1 Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. 2 Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. 3 Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. 4 For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future.
5 There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 one God and Father of all,
who is over all, in all, and living through all.
7 However, he has given each one of us a special gift through the generosity of Christ. 8 That is why the Scriptures say,
“When he ascended to the heights,
he led a crowd of captives
and gave gifts to his people.”
9 Notice that it says “he ascended.” This clearly means that Christ also descended to our lowly world. 10 And the same one who descended is the one who ascended higher than all the heavens, so that he might fill the entire universe with himself.

2 Timothy 2:8 (NLT)
8 Always remember that Jesus Christ, a descendant of King David, was raised from the dead. This is the Good News I preach.

Philippians 1:6 (NLT)
6 And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
