Prayer Focus week 47 (Sunday-Shabbat)
How can we not be conformed to all of the negativity around us? How can we be a light unto the lost and hurting? Our Father has given us the answer! Build our lives on 3 fundamentals: study the Word, Pray, and Walk according to His precepts. As we follow His instructions, we will have peace and be a light unto the nations!
· To be like Yeshua, we need to study the Scriptures that He studied – the Torah! “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth,” 2 Tim 2:15, KJV. (The Parasha reading schedule continues to be listed on the current calendar.)
· “Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much,” Jas 5:16, NASB.
· “For it is not those who hear the Torah who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the Torah who will be declared righteous,” Romans 2:13, NIV. “And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love,” 2 John 1:6, NIV.
Prayer:we blessed to be allowed to intercede for the needs. Some answers come within a few days, others may take weeks or months. Regardless of what we see with our natural eyes, HE is working. We need to continue to be faithful inintercession!
“Mighty God! Thank You for continuing to mature us – helping us to keep You and Your precepts (Your Word, Prayer, and our Walks) foremost in our minds. Be with our nation. Help us, as a country, to once again cleave to You. Help Israel to stand strong. Bring Your peace to each of these nations. Protect Natan and our soldiers – bring them home spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally whole. In your most Holy Name, we pray..”
