We have the privilege of a guest “prayer” for today’s edition. My friend Mary is a Cross Cultural Worker in another country and regularly sends out email updates about her and her family. Her most recent communication contained a “Praying Scripture” section – just like we have been doing together here. AND the passage she used to pray is one I’ve been working on memorizing this year.
I LOVE it when God uses others to emphasize what He’s doing in our lives. It’s so kind of Him.
With permission, I share the scripture passage and prayer she shared with me:
But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leave are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit. Jeremiah 17:7-8
The prayer is a little long for the photo boxes I usually put mine in, so I have split it. I want to honor her heartfelt words to the Lord and not cut it short.
…and truth, nourished by your living water. May we not fear in times of hardship and trials. And may we always bear fruit, the fruit of the Spirit in our lives and the fruit of the harvest! We pray this for all believers, but in particular, those that are facing persecution and spiritual warfare. May they stand firm, rooted and established in you. Amen.
I appreciate so much Mary allowing me to use her words and display her heart for God’s people. Lifting you to His throne in this. And don’t forget to share this on social media or with a friend who could benefit. It would mean so much to me.
