My Prayer With You Today

October 16

Scripture Readings:  Proverbs 12:21-28, Jeremiah 4-5, John 2

Reflection Verses:  John 2:3-4

Prayer:  Lord, Jesus’ first reported miracle – turning water into wine – comes at His mother’s request.  In doing this Jesus demonstrates that nothing is better than who He is and what He provides.  He is our provision and meets our every need.  There is no better time than right now to do what Jesus says to do in word and deed.  May I obey His Word, proclaim His Word, and do the works He has called me to do in His name.  Amen.

Scripture Readings:  Proverbs 13:1-6, Jeremiah 6-7:29, John 3:1-21

Reflection Verses:  John 3:14-15

Prayer:  Gracious God, just as the serpent was lifted up in the wilderness stopped the judgment that was on the people, Jesus being lifted up on the cross will stop the judgment of sin on the people.  Jesus’ death on the cross brought forgiveness for sin and reconciliation to You, Lord God.  I believe in Him!  My sins are forgiven!  I have eternal life with You!  To You be all Glory, Lord God!  Praise be Your name! Amen.

Scripture Readings:  Proverbs 13:7-12, Jeremiah 7:30-9, John 3:22-36

Reflection Verse:  John 3:36

Prayer:  Lord God, each person has a clear choice – believe in Jesus and have eternal life or don’t believe in Jesus and have an eternal life of punishment, remaining separated from You with Your wrath still on that person for judgment.  I have made and continue to make the choice to believe in Jesus and have eternal life reconciled to You.  This means, Lord, that I am forgiven of my sin and Your wrath of eternal punishment has been removed from me.  Praise Your Holy name.  Amen.

Scripture Readings:  Proverbs 13:13-18, Jeremiah 10-12:4, John 4:1-26

Reflection Verse:  John 4:15

Prayer:  Father God, this woman begins to believe that there is more to life than what she is experiencing.  She asks for something that can only be delivered supernaturally by You.  When we are open to what You have for us, we ask for more of You.  She asked for the Living Water and Jesus gave it to her.  The Living Water of Jesus is all any of us need to be cleansed of our sin and have salvation in Him.  Praise You, Lord, for the Living Water in my life through Jesus Christ.  Amen.
