Let's pray...

How often do we spend time

praying for those

who are

faking it?


Meaning:


How often do we spend time

praying

for those

who are pretending

they are

right with God.

 


First,

let's allow God

to stir us

up

with a passion

and with

appropriate concern

for those who are not right with God.





Loving Heavenly Father,

I am deeply concerned.

I have loved ones who are faking it.

Father, intervene and help them.

Get their attention. Get in their face and tell them the dangers of the path they are walking.

Give me a deeper heart of compassion for the spiritual lives of my loved ones.

Draw my thoughts to the truths I need to face in order to pray passionately for them.

Stir me to prayer.

In Jesus' name I pray,

Amen

 And how can we be sure

that we belong to him?

By looking within ourselves:

are we really trying to do what he wants us to?

Today, let's spend some time

hearing truth from God

(I know it will be hard for you)

about those we know

who show - little to no - evidence

that they love and respect God.



Jesus said:

If a person loves me,

he will

obey my words.

John 14:23


Let's watch the following video

in order to

stir up passion and concern

for our loved ones

who do not have a right relationship with God.

Loving Lord,

Use the video today

to stir up

in me

a heart of compassion

  for those who are far from you.




Jesus said:

These people honor me with

their lips,

but their hearts are far from me.

Matthew 15:8

Dear Lord,

I lift my loved ones up to you in prayer.

I know that it is hard to get honest and transparent with you.

Getting real with you takes courage.

It is hard to face our sins before a holy God.

It is hard to repent and turn from our sins.

It is going to be a hard thing for my loved ones to do.

But I acknowledge to you that I know they desperately need to do it.

God help them.

Give them the thoughts they need to hear. Give them the emotions they need to feel.

Please God. I don't know what to pray, but I am willing to pray. Give me your words.

Turn my love for them into prayer action.

I will have the courage to face the truth about my loved ones and instead of running away from those thoughts, I WILL PRAY!

I will pray in Jesus' name!

AMEN!

I encourage you to read

Revelation chapters 2 and 3

if you are unsure how

Jesus feels about believers

being casual about the Bible

and about believers being

casual about sin in their life.
