October 30 Prayer
‘ ..He that began a good work in you will continue to complete it, ‘because I hold you in my heart I pray that your love may increase ever more in knowledge, and every kind of perception, to discern what is of value,’ Philip.1-11
Paul prays with confidence knowing that it is Christ in you that will complete his work for his glory.
Jesus heals an afflicted man on the sabbath not as the leaders perceived to be a task of work but because it is who He is. Lk.14
He is healer and cannot not show compassion, He is love, so there is no other way to be.
God’s work in us is his glory and will bring him glory as we become as He is.
Pause to be with Jesus as He is now, full of compassion that sees every need and has the power to gather every heart unto himself.
‘ Lord Jesus, we long to see what you see and be as you are.
Help us change our perceptions and let you give us new ways of seeing things all around us.
May we receive the glory of our inheritance by staying close to you.
Give us the strength to stop in the middle of our wrong thinking and seeing so we may look again and think your way.
We thank you beautiful wise Holy Spirit for working in us to complete Christ’s glory through our lives.
May we live and move and have our being in you today.
Increase our love and ability to discern what is of true value and may our perceptions be changed to see your glory.
Let us not miss the opportunity that you place before us this day.
We rest in the confidence that you are faithful to complete what you have begun.
