Need Someone to Pray for You? Read to the Last Part…Jesus Prays for Us…

JOHN 17

Prayer for the Son

1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

Prayer for the Disciples

6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

Prayer for all Believers

20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

A Promised Blessing

John 13:15-17
I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.  Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.  Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

I  created this on 8/24/15 at 7:36am. This is on an app on my phone.
Saved it because it was uplifting and you can’t get much more encouraging than this!

My point you ask?
This simply appears in my notifications at around 3:45pm today!
Odd, I  had not even been in this app for I am not sure how long.  I certainly don’t set notifications for anything. 

KEEPING LOOKING UP… we may not know the day nor the hour but we know He is coming!  Praise God!  Thank you Jesus!

Let it Go, Repent for Yourself

Good message.  Time is short.  We will each answer for ourselves. We cannot change what happened but we can live, pray and continually repent of our sin.

All Sin Must be Confessed! REPENT & “Look Upward & Onward” to JESUS”

Thanks Brother Todd

What does this mean?

Ok, I kept thinking about the post I just did prior to this one.  I thought the verses were very familiar.  Not simply that I knew them but like I had shared them with someone recently.  I looked on my email and found verses I had shared with others in the past few days and they were all different.  I just now came to my site and yep…there they were.  They were the same ones I used in my January 21 st blog.  The first one I had written something more joyful before the verses.  Today’s seemed more URGENT. 

What do you think?

Worried?

Times are overwhelming. We cannot lose hope. We DO have victory in Christ Jesus!

GOD SAYS…..

Isaiah 43:1-2
43 But now, this is what the Lord says—
he who created you, Jacob,
he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.

Isaiah 44:2
2 This is what the Lord says—
he who made you, who formed you in the womb,
and who will help you:
Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servant,
Jeshurun, whom I have chosen

Isaiah 44:24
24 “This is what the Lord says—
your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb:

I am the Lord,
who has made all things,
who alone stretched out the heavens,
who spread out the earth by myself,

Psalm 22:9

9 Yet you brought me out of the womb;
you made me trust in you
even at my mother’s breast.

Psalm 139:13

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb

More Than Conquerors
Romans 8:28 (always a favorite….I relied on so many times and no matter if I like what is happening I can trust He only has the best in mind for each of us through any issues…..ask God to show you everything you need to see…ask for wisdom)
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,[a] who[b] have been called according to his purpose.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (this another one to stand on…even though hard learn to literally pray “thank you for this very thing –no matter how bad something may seem…thank Him…because once again it says “in ALL circumstances” and not just the good ones but all…what may appear bad to us as a purpose for us or someone else and ultimately someone drawing closer to the Lord is what is the most important)

18 give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Finally….

Isaiah 55:6-12 (Another favorite)

6 Seek the Lord while he may be found;
call on him while he is near.
7 Let the wicked forsake his way
and the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
12 You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.

Ok…lied…one more

Psalm 46:10 (always remember!)

10 “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
