Weekly Prayer Focus (9)

By Rebecca Clopp

MONDAY 

TEMPTATION 

“No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭10‬:‭13‬ ‭NASB

Paul gave strong encouragement to the Corinthians about temptation. He said (1) wrong desires happen to everyone. Any temptation can be resisted because God will help you resist it. God helps you recognize people and situations that give you trouble. Turn and run the other way when you know something is wrong. Make up your mind and choose to do right. Pray for God’s help and seek friends that have a genuine walk with Christ. Friends that can give wise counsel. Daily, ask The Lord to give you victory!

And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not lead us into TEMPTATION, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’]

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭9‬-‭13‬ ‭NASB

THURSDAY

WORD OF TRUTH 

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.”

‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭2‬:‭15‬ ‭NASB

“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4‬:‭12‬-‭13‬ ‭NASB

“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”

‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭16‬ ‭NASB

 FRIDAY

SPOKE FROM GOD

“So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.”

2 Peter‬ ‭1‬:‭19‬-‭21‬ ‭NASB 

WORD of GOD Speak 

SATURDAY 

WORRIES               

“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 

“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭25‬-‭34‬ ‭NASB

LAY ALL YOUR BURDENS DOWN AT HIS FEET !

SUNDAY 

Lord I Cast All My Cares Upon You

Verse 1

When my cross is too heavy to carry,

When trials too hard to bear

I will lift mine eyes to mount Calvary where He died

Lord I leave every burden there

Lord I cast all my cares upon You;

I lay all of my burdens down at Your feet;

Anytime I don’t know what to do,

I will cast all my cares upon You.

Verse 2

You can give all your heartache to Jesus

He’s a faithful compassionate Friend

He’s the Master, the Savior and the Healer

That you prayed for

Just look to mount Calvary and say

Burdens are lifted at Calvary, Calvary, Calvary.

All your burdens are lifted at Calvary

Jesus is very near

Anytime I don’t know what to do,

I will cast all my cares upon You.
