Prayer For Participation

pray

We need to be more than pew sitter or comfy chair warmers. In Philemon The Apostle Paul prayed a prayer for participation.

”I pray that your participation in the faith may become effective through knowing every good thing that is in us for the glory of Christ”. Philemon 1 verse 6:

The Apostle Paul, told Philemon that he was praying for him and asking God to help him, put into action generosity that comes from his faith.

He also prayed that his friend would have a deeper understanding and experience of all he had in Jesus Christ.

After all the better we know Christ and the more experienced His blessings, the more we want to share blessing with others.

Acts Chapter 3″ All that we have in Christ Jesus”.

The story in Acts 3. Peter and John, prayed for a crippled man at the temple. The cripple was expecting something, but would have been surprised by the words of Peter, verse 5:

“I don’t have any silver or gold for you{the crippled man} But I’ll give you what I have, In the Name of Jesus the Nazarene get up and walk”.

There is the experience of knowing Jesus.

There is the transformation in our lives that comes from knowing Jesus.

Ephesians 3 verse 16 to19:

V16: “I pray that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with the power through His Spirit in the inner man {or woman}”

V17:”and that the Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you being rooted and firmly established in love”.

V18: “may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and depth of God’s love”.

V19:”and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God”.

Be transformed by that knowing Christ Jesus and all He has done for us.

God Bless.
