May our week be filled with intention. Lord help us to respond with love, be warm hearted & gracious, be caring & to become aware of our responses to others. Amen
Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
May our giving be an expression of thanks to God.
2 Corinthians 9:12
This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.
Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament), Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages). Amen (so be it).
Lord, free us from anything & anyone who would cause us any harm.
The Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in Him.
You have allowed me to suffer much hardship, but You will restore me to life again and lift me up from the depths of the earth.
Dear Lord, I pray that through the work of Your Spirit dwelling within me I will be transformed into a grand display of the fruit that will attract others to You and reflect glory back to You.
Righteousness in your heart produces beauty in your character.
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Living Bible (TLB)
4 When I pray for you, my heart is full of joy. 7 How natural it is that I should feel as I do about you, for you have a very special place in my heart. 8 Only God knows how deep is my love and longing for you—with the tenderness of Jesus Christ. 9 My prayer for you is that you will overflow more and more with love for others, and at the same time keep on growing in spiritual knowledge and insight, 10 for I want you always to see clearly the difference between right and wrong, and to be inwardly clean, no one being able to criticize you from now until our Lord returns. 11 May you always be doing those good, kind things that show you are a child of God, for this will bring much praise and glory to the Lord.
