August 4 Prayer
‘If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and seek my face and turn from your offensive ways.’
‘If’,....that’s a condition and request from God.
...And what is He asking us to do?
And, What causes us to offend God?
The religious leaders were offended when Jesus broke their traditions and ways of thinking. They offended God when they got stuck in their old ways of thinking and traditions. Matt.15
‘Listen and understand,’ Jesus tries to explain to us.
‘Insight gives patience and virtue to overlook an offense’ Pr.19:11
So here we pause and ask our merciful God for wisdom and understanding.
‘Jesus, you are one with the Father and He is one with you. You give us the holy spirit to live in us as you live in them.
Help us to clean out our minds to allow you to enter into our heart rooms and change the way we think.
May you plant your spirit of oneness within us so we are able to overlook an offense.
Help us to stop imitating the ideal and opinions of the culture but let us be inwardly transformed by your spirit through a total reformation of how we think.
May our lives be lived as beautiful, pleasing and perfect in your eyes. Romans 12:2
May this be so throughout all of your people who are called by your name, humbled before you.
We pray to the Lord, heal our minds, our hearts and our land.
Make us one as you are one
In Jesus name,
