DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION–SAK. EST
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 1 Timothy 2:1-2
THEME: THE INFLUENCE OF PRAYER
WORDS OF HOPE:
In these verses Paul gives us a big hint about how to have the protection of God in our lives and the lives of our family. He tells us to pray and thank God for all, meaning all human beings as well as for kings and those in power. We should be praying for our spiritual leaders, our kid’s teachers in school, our government officials. When we do that we lead a quiet and peaceable life. This tells us that God is honouring our prayers and turning the hearts of not only those in authority over us, but also all men who touch our lives. These are the people who determine whether we live in quiet and peace or conflict and distress. We can create a spiritual environment around us by praying that wherever we go we will encounter the proper influences we need to discern God’s will and make the right decisions. The right decisions keep us safe. You can pray for laborers to come across your path so you will share God’s word with them in a meaningful and relevant way. You can pray for them to hear the gospel and receive Jesus if they have not been saved yet. After all real protection begins with their eternal security in Christ Jesus.
· Lord Jesus I give you thanks for your hand of help in this age.
· I receive and possess my portion in today’s loads of benefits by fire in Jesus Christ name.
· Pray in the Holy Spirit concerning today and declare Psalm 25:1-5.
O lord may we be kept safe in the power of our Jesus Christ as we go through the day. Amen 🙏🏽
