Please Allow Me?

 

Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere, I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.
I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself. – Ephesians 1:15-23

Can I pray for you?

See, I’ve been where I couldnt pray. I surely don’t have the answers you need. But I know how it feels.

I know who to take it to, and I know what it is to have that knowledge and still just not be able to find the words or the way.

You’ve prayed for me before, when I was at my lowest and couldn’t pray for myself. I know, because I’ve felt your prayers. They have lifted me up, reminded me of truth, and sustained me.

So now I ask… for those of you who feel like you can’t pray…

Please Allow Me?

Father God, thank You for each soul reading this right now. Please, Father, give them spiritual insight, that they might grow in You. Let their hearts be flooded with light so they can understand the hope You have given them. I pray that You will help them to understand Your incredibly great power. Help them to know that they are filled with Christ, and are a valuable part of His body. Restore them to Yourself, Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…

  1. This post blessed me immensely! Then I clicked on the video to hear the wonderful song by Watermark…wow! Who would have guessed that one of the biggest blessings in this life is someone who will pray for us! I don’t think I’ve really understood this before! ( I have been praying Jeremiah 33…”call to Me & I will answer & show you great & mighty things which you do not know”, says the Lord.) I will be sharing this post! Thank you Shelly! Love & prayers, in Jesus, Cynthia

    Thank you for the prayer for your readers too- a blessing going deep into my spirit this morning. I have posted a prayer request on FB for my daughter and sil Kieran as they hold a yard sale tomorrow then head off to Thailand Monday and he will leave for a week's training with Destiny Rescue the day after they arrive- so praying Amy will be ok in the apartment provided by the International Christian School where she will work and they will live.
