A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Are you fully committed to following Christ, and devoted to the cause of the true Gospel?

Are you steadfastly standing on the truth of God’s word?

By the way, can a transgressor of God’s law (like an unfaithful spouse) be faithful to God?

 

DAY # 11

TODAY’S REQUEST:

PRAYING FOR THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT:

FAITHFULNESS

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

Psalms 31:23 Oh, love the LORD, all you His saints! For the LORD preserves the faithful, And fully repays the proud person.

1 Timothy 3: 10 But let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons, being found blameless. 11 Likewise their wives must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things.

Proverbs 20:6 Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, But who can find a faithful man?

Proverbs 25:13 Like the cold of snow in time of harvest Is a faithful messenger to those who send him, For he refreshes the soul of his masters.

Revelation 2:10 "Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

 

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

USING OUR TALENTS WITHOUT FEAR

Matthew 24:45 "Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season?

Matthew 25:14-21 "For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. 15 "And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey.

16 "Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. 17 "And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. 18 "But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. 19 "After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 "So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ 21 "His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

Revelation 17:14 "These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful."

Proverbs 28:20 A faithful man will abound with blessings, But he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished.
