To be like Jesus 175


Jesus prayed,

“While I was with them in the world, I kept them in my name: those that thou gavest me I kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.” John 17 v12 AKJV

Lord, as this day goes forward let us pray for one another. Let us pray that we are one with you, and that our understanding of you and your ways come together as one with you and with one another. Give us understanding of your word as we live, line by line-precept by precept-and we thank you.

Lord, this day is yours.

To be like Jesus 174


Jesus prayed the intercessor prayer, he talked to the father with confidence just before the prayer and in confirmation to him going to be with the father-God-as where he was “before the world was.”

These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said,

Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self the glory which I had thee before the world was.

I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them to me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me be one, as we are.” John 17 v1-11 AKJV

Lord, this day is yours. Our prayers are lifted to you this day for our own. Those who you have blessed our lives with and are about your Love for others, I pray a special prayer. I thank you this day for all that you have done. I thank you for the boldness of faith you have given us and to understand all the humility in our existence that amplifies your presence on this earth and to us as individuals. Bless this day, O Lord. Amen

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Romans 1 v16 AKJV

Lord, this day is yours. It is by your strength we are blessed and we thank you. Your word, your light is the power by which we move forward. We thank you. Amen

But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.” 2 Timothy 2 v16

Lord, this day is yours. Guide our steps in your way and let our thoughts and meditation be on your word. Let us walk by faith in reality of our own lives with your guidance and assurance. We give you thanks this day, and even pray your sovereign ways will keep us in all your ways, Amen.

Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.” 2 Timothy 2 v14 AKJV

To speak of words that have no profit in them is a loss, but the words of the Lord and the understanding of them is what will bring true peace of heart and mind. The foundation of which we build is on the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lord, this day help me to remember my words carry an impact to others so the words should be chosen in order to bring understanding of your ways and not of other reasons.

Lord, this day is yours. Amen

“Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision,

Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.” Acts 18 v9,10 AKJV

“Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,” Romans 1 v1 … in another written version separated -set apart.

Let us this day be “set apart” in our walk from the ways of this world and “separated unto the gospel of God” which involves a renewing of mind in who we are, how we are seen of the world and in the ways all rightly divided yet standing as one whole in the word of God.

Lord, this day is yours. Amen
