Day 244 2 Thessalonians 3:1-9

Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord For Honor, For we may not have much, But respect for Our Lord shall be of the Most High! I Thank the Lord for Directions, For we were Lost and Now found in Christ! I Thank the Lord for Modeling, For we are called to represent the Most High God in all our ways!

 

It is Written, “As for other matters, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you. And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith. But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one. We have confidence in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we command. May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to offer ourselves as a model for you to imitate.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-9

 

Prayer: Father, I Pray that you Bless us with the Spirit of Holiness, so we shall Honor you in Jesus Name, Amen!

 

Day 243 Acts 6:1-7

Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Leadership, For The Holy Spirit shall Choose our Leaders! I Thank The Lord for Prayer, For in this we call upon the Lord for Guidance! I Thank the Lord for Fasting, For our flesh is corruptible, so we must starve ourselves to grow close to God’s Spirit!

 

It is Written, “In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenistic Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.” This proposal pleased the whole group. They chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit; also Philip, Procorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas from Antioch, a convert to Judaism. They presented these men to the apostles, who prayed and laid their hands on them. So the word of God spread. The number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly, and a large number of priests became obedient to the faith.” Acts 6:1-7

 

Prayer: I Pray Father that your Church leans to the Holy Spirit to place Leaders where they are called in Jesus Name, Amen!

Day 242 John 14:1-10

Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Work, For all are called to sweat from our brow! I Thank the Lord for Promises, For the Greatest of them all is from our Lord Jesus! I Thank the Lord for Destiny, For our Life was written before we were born!

 

It is Written, “”Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.” John 14:1-10

 

Prayer: I Pray Father that you prepare your Children for your Fathers House in Jesus Nam

Day 241 1 Timothy 3:1-12

Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Change, For we are given a new chance daily to become something better than Human. I Thank the Lord for Fruition, For God gives us plans that shall manifest into Life! I Thank the Lord for Declaration, For with this Vow we offer our Word to the Lord!

 

It is Written, “Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap. In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons. In the same way, the women are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well.” 1 Timothy 3:1-12

 

Prayer: I Pray Lord that you strengthen your Children who are Called as Leader in your Spirit in Jesus Name, Amen!

Day 240 1 John 2:3-11

Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Light, For those who are called to the Light shall flee the darkness! I Thank the Lord for Peace, For we are called to rest in our Savior! I Thank the Lord for Love, For we are called to Love each other to show our Love to the Father!

 

It is Written, “We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did. Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning. This old command is the message you have heard. Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and in you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining. Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.” John 2:3-11

 

Prayer: I Pray Father that you Bless your Children with Light so they may be Pillars of Love in a Dark world in Jesus Name, Amen!

Day 239 1 Peter 2:4-10

Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Being Chosen, For we have been accepted into the Lord’s Holy Family! Thank the Lord for Being The Cornerstone, For Christ is a stumbling block as Peter was the Rock that made them Fall! I Than the Lord for Divine Order, For what the world see’s as foolish, God see’s as His plan!

 

It is Written, “As you come to him, the living Stone–rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him– you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, “The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,” and, “A stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.” They stumble because they disobey the message–which is also what they were destined for. But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” 1 Peter 2:4-10

 

Prayer: I Pray Dear Father, as your Children consume your Holy Word, May their Spirit be moved to speak prayers that never cease in Jesus Name, Amen!

Day 238 Ephasians 3:1-12

Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Vision, For without it, we as a people would be lost in a dead world! I Thank the Lord for Tithe, For are love is shown when we make our offering to the Lord! I Thank the Lord for Due Diligence, For those who seek the Lord on a deeper level shall find the Father!

 

It is Written, “For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles– Surely you have heard about the administration of God’s grace that was given to me for you, that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly. In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, which was not made known to people in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God’s holy apostles and prophets. This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus. I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace given me through the working of his power. Although I am less than the least of all the Lord’s people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the boundless riches of Christ, and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things. His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.” Ephesians 3:1-12

 

Prayer: I Pray Father Abba, that you move this generation to seek the greater gifts you offer to them in Jesus Name, Amen!

 

Day 237 Matthew 2:19-23

Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Bravery, For we are called to stand when all else is falling! I Thank the Lord for Divine Dreams, For the Father has Angel’s who work in mysterious ways! I Thank the Lord for Fortitude, For through every struggle we and strengthened!

 

It is Written, “After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt 20 and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who were trying to take the child’s life are dead.” 21 So he got up, took the child and his mother and went to the land of Israel. 22 But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning in Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. Having been warned in a dream, he withdrew to the district of Galilee, 23 and he went and lived in a town called Nazareth. So was fulfilled what was said through the prophets, that he would be called a Nazarene.” Matthew 2:19-23

 

Prayer: I Pray Father that you Send your Children dreams that will move them closer to their destinies in Jesus Name, Amen!

Day 236 2 Corinthians 11:1-13

Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord For Virtue, For in this evil times, Righteousness will become an ever increasing rarity! I Thank the Lord for Marriage, For our true love shall always be Christ who is our Head! I Thank the Lord for Wisdom, For we are called to see beyond the good in this world!

 

It is Written, “I hope you will put up with me in a little foolishness. Yes, please put up with me! I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. I do not think I am in the least inferior to those “super-apostles.” I may indeed be untrained as a speaker, but I do have knowledge. We have made this perfectly clear to you in every way. Was it a sin for me to lower myself in order to elevate you by preaching the gospel of God to you free of charge? I robbed other churches by receiving support from them so as to serve you. And when I was with you and needed something, I was not a burden to anyone, for the brothers who came from Macedonia supplied what I needed. I have kept myself from being a burden to you in any way, and will continue to do so. As surely as the truth of Christ is in me, nobody in the regions of Achaia will stop this boasting of mine. Why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! And I will keep on doing what I am doing in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us in the things they boast about. For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:1-13

 

Prayer: I Pray Father that you give your Children an increase of the Spirit of Discernment through these evil times in Jesus Name, Amen!

 

 

Day 235 John 20:1-9

Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for resurrection, for even in Death we are called to Life! I Thank the Lord for reconciliation, for we have been redeemed in the eyes of our Lord! I Thank the Lord for Victory, for we have been made winner in the eyes of our Savior!

 

It is Written, “Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen. Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.)” John 20:1-9

 

Prayer: I Pray Lord that you bless your Children on this Day of Remembrance that you are no longer in the grave, but made alive in Jesus Name, Amen!
