30 Days of Prayer - Day 19
John 20 : 29 NIV Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.
My question to you is: Do you need to see to believe? Some of us believe if we get a clear sign or miracle from Heaven : than it will be easier to believe. The proof is in the words we read in the Bible and the countless testimonies from the body of believers around the world and throughout history.
We can have a doubt----- as a mind does this from time to time , but we don't have to live out a doubting way of life. Jesus understands doubt, and does not reject us, but this must be an honest and directed question toward belief . Is it not better to share your doubts of disbelief, than to suffer in silence? God's people struggle with this from time to time and look to the body of believers for encouragement and prayer. Nobody is perfect!
I can't honestly say I have ever struggled myself with belief , but from time to time, I may have a tendency to ask God why?? Why is this happening? And each time I receive an answer; its because we live in a fallen world..
1 Peter 5:8 NIV-Be on guard and stay awake . Your enemy the devil, is like a roaring lion, sneaking around to find someone to attack.
Verse- 9 But you must resist the devil and stay strong in your faith. You know that all over the world the Lord's followers are suffering just as you are. Verse 10- But God shows undeserved kindness to everyone. That's why he had Christ Jesus choose you to share in His eternal glory. You will suffer for awhile, but God will make you complete , steady, strong and firm, "God will be in control Forever! Amen
We are built for eternity! We receive- Eternal life through Jesus Christ, Son of God.
1 Peter 5: 8-9 Stay alert !! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking to devour someone. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember you Christian brother and sisters - all around the world are going through the same kind of suffering.
1 Peter 5: 14 Greet each other with Christian love. Peace be with all of you who are in Christ.
Lord God, Maker of heaven and earth , I come to you today on behalf of your people . I look around and am sadden by the things in this world that take front and center over You. Im sorry, we are sorry Lord Jesus. I am so very thankful for Your patience God. Thank you for waiting for me and others to return to You. I pray every eye be opened to Your glorious and righteous ways. May every ear hear your voice with complete discernment as they pray. I pray that every tongue confess that You are Lord !
I pray Lord Jesus, for our nation to return back to You, and that every nation know of your unyielding love, forgiveness , patience , kindness, gentleness, peace and joy. I pray Your Word God has a great impact on this nation and all nations. Let each of us walk in love and obedience according to Your Word .
I pray everyone knows that believing in Jesus, is the Only way to Heaven, because He alone died- for our sins and made us right before You, Father God. Thank You Jesus! 1 John 3:16 NIV says: For God so love the world, that He gave His one and only Son Jesus , so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent His Son into the world, not to judge the world, but to save the world through His Son, Jesus. Amen Thank God Almighty!
Father God, I pray for those being persecuted around the world,that you may relieve them from their captor and place them on peaceful soil and bring them home to their families . I pray against all evil, and evildoers, and sickness according to Your Word Thank You, Lord God. Lord Jesus, there are many whom are sick, oppressed, poor, addicted, broken hearted , hopeless, lost, full of fear, suffering from anxiety, suffering mental illness, and struggling in this life. I pray Lord Jesus, that You remove these things according to Your promises in the Word of God. Replace each one with hope, peace, health, healing, finances , and joy! Only You alone Lord God, can restore us! Thank You Lord!
As I close my prayer Lord, I pray for protection over all your children near and far. And for each child to be aware of your goodness and love, and that every mother and father lead their children to the Cross and never away from it. That each child does mighty works for your kingdom Lord Jesus, and each of them personally know who they are in You. Thank You Father! Thank You Father God, for all that You have blessed each of us with; little or much! We are so grateful! Thank you for your blessing on this nation! Please have mercy on us as we repent and return to You. Thank You Lord. I pray for all these things to come to pass in Jesus glorious name . Amen!1
