Thought For The Month
"For this reason I kneel before the Father... I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith."
Ephesians 3, vs16<17
What's the greatest thing we can do to bless those we love in Christ Jesus? What is the most helpful thing we can do when a brother or sister in Christ, or even a whole congregation of God's people is facing a major challenge from the Evil One? What is one of the greatest gifts we can give to our children or our parents as they seek to live for Jesus today? The apostle Paul just showed us. We can ask God to strengthen His people with the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in their inner being. Then we can let them know that we have prayed this for them, and that we will continue to pray it until their storm is past.
Gracious God and Almighty Father, please bless our church family with your power and presence through the Holy Spirit. Help us to continue to do all we can to encourage and strengthen them, but we believe that they need your Spirit's power far more than anything we could do for them as individuals. Thank you for hearing our prayer in Jesus' name. Amen.
