Posted on 03/06/2014 9:15:31 PM PST by NEWwoman
As many believers observe the season of Lent, may our minds be focused on Jesus instead of ourselves. May we reflect that the entire Passion of His temptations, suffering, death, and resurrection was foretold various ways in the Old Testament.
When Jesus walked the earth, the Roman Empire seemed so formidable and its culture so immoral. In the darkness of paganism and religious legalism, may we remember Your work of our deliverance and redemption, not only of Your chosen people, but also of the world. And with the power of the Holy Spirit, those who called on Your Name turned the world upside down. May the stories of Your marvelous works through the humble give us courage in our days.
May Your people continue to be salt and light in this corrupt world system. Protect our heroes, home and abroad, who put themselves in harms way and enable the Gospel to be spread. Keep them safe from the evil one, especially the subtle enemy within. Bless all your sons and daughters in Your special care,
In Jesus Name we pray,
I join in prayer for our heroes and nation!
I join with you in praying for Our Heroes and Our Great Nation!!!
Joining you in prayers for our troops and our nation...
Read: Romans 8:19-27
Over the years, Ive had the opportunity to teach the Bible to many people around the world. Because I can speak only English, I often work with interpreters who can take the words of my heart and translate them into the language of the people. Effective communication is directly dependent upon the skill of these translators. Whether it is Inawaty in Indonesia, Annie in Malaysia, or Jean in Brazil, they ensure that the meaning of my words is clearly expressed.
This work of translation resembles one facet of the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of Gods people. In our times of prayer, we dont always know how we should pray (Rom. 8:26), and verse 27 encourages us, saying, Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. When we go to our heavenly Father in prayer, the Holy Spirit comes to our aid by translating our prayers according to Gods good purposes for our lives.
What a provision! Not only does God desire for us to share our hearts with Him, He even provides us with the greatest interpreter to help us as we pray. We can be sure that our prayers will never get lost in translation.
Joining in prayer for our Heroes and our Nation.
