I Pray For Unity In The Church And Restored Families

Holy Father please instill a loving and kingdom unity in YOUR Church and harmony among YOUR people.

Give us one heart and one mind to love YOU and one another. Help us in humility to tear down the strongholds of disunity and serve together in fulfilling YOUR kingdom purpose in this land.

Bring a heart of love, forgiveness and reconciliation to Christian families everywhere, including in my own family. Restore in us a steadfast heart toward You and a strong desire to b e part of building YOUR kingdom.

10th Benefit of Praying the Scriptures by Candace

praying-the-scriptures.jpg10th Benefit of Praying the Scriptures

10. Jesus will draw you close. I promise. In your darkest moments, grab your Bible, open to Psalm 34 and Jesus will meet you there. I have found that to be so true in my own life, time and time again. I come to Him desperate and He draws me in, whispers these words of comfort through His Word and I feel like I’m receiving a hug from my Lord. He just draws us closer to Himself when we spend that time in His Word.
I fully agree with Candace— I have been praying the Scriptures for years.Next, I will show you some examples from my prayer journal— how I pray the Scriptures.

9th Benefit of Praying the Scriptures by Candace

praying-the-scriptures.jpg9th Benefit of Praying the Scriptures

9. Peace and comfort are yours for the taking. There isn’t anything in this world that will fill us with peace like God and His Word. I’m a words kind of girl…words encourage and uplift my soul like not a lot of other things can. But, the words of God? Well they are even more special to me. And when I sit for a few minutes at the start of my day with the Psalms, I am immediately filled with peace. God is so good like that.Tenth Benefit Tomorrow.

Righteous God, please send by YOUR Spirit an overwhelming conviction of our sin, of my sin,and give us all a deep and sincere brokenness, and genuine repentance, turning us back to YOU and Your kingdom purpose.
