Abiding in Christ
Heavenly Father, I seek to abide in Christ. I realize that this is the key to fruitfulness in my life. Jesus is the Vine, and I am the branch. I need to continually abide in Him, for without Him I can do nothing. I will abide in Jesus, and I will let His words abide in me. I thank you for your promise, Father that this will enable me to ask what I will, knowing that it shall be done. Thank you for your Word which helps me to always pray according to your will. Father, with all my heart,, I desire to keep your Word. Perfect your love in my life so that I will constantly abide in Jesus, and learn to walk as He walked, and to love as He loved. With your help, I will follow His example and walk in His steps.
GIVE the GIFT of PRAYER
You might not think of a failure to pray for others as a sin against God, but Samuel clearly
Considered it so. God calls us to support one another, love one another, and pray for one another. When we don’t do these acts, we are not living in the unity and fellowship that He desires us to have, and we cannot experience all the blessings that He wants to give us.
Prayer is the greatest gift we can give to anyone. Of course, if someone needs food, clothes, and a place to live, those needs must be met too. But in giving that way, we also should not neglect to pray for that person as well. Material things are temporary, but our prayers for another person can affect him or her for a lifetime.
