Household Prayer 11/17/2020

“When God has something very great to accomplish for his church, it is His will that there should precede it the extraordinary prayers of his people.”

Jonathan Edwards – #AwakeAmerica2020https://www.awakeamerica2020.com

Brothers, today my prayer thought comes from the book “By what standard? God’s world… God’s rules” from Founders Ministries. Chapter 1 is titled “Hollow and deceptive philosophies,” and walks through Colossians 2:6-10. So, my prayer is that by the education and instruction of our children we prepare them to live in and evaluate this world from God’s standard. I pray that our children will come to understand that the powers of this world seek to take us captive to godless ideologies, and I pray that they would be alert and rooted in Christ Jesus! Lord Jesus, bring them to a saving faith and fill them with the Holy Spirit.

Read Colossians 2:6-10

By What Standard? God’s World… God’s Rules” by Founders Ministries https://press.founders.org/shop/by-what-standard-gods-world-gods-rules/

“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.”

Colossians‬ ‭2:6-10‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Reform the Church and ReEnchant the World with God’s Truth and Grace!

Enchant (latin: encantio): to speak meaning into.

If the church is not reenchanting this fallen world with God’s truth and grace, then it is being disenchanted with the lies of Satan!

“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
Romans 10:14-15

Prayer, public witness of the church, and proclaiming God’s truth and grace.

Why are we here (in this sin fallen world)? 
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace. 
To make disciples of all nations.
Matthew 28:18-20

Why are we here (on the sidewalk outside an abortion clinic)? 
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace. 
To love the captive soul and to preach the good news!
Romans 10:14-15

What message are we sharing and bearing witness to? 
There is a God that created the heavens and the earth.
That we are sinners and justly deserve our due punishment.
But God is merciful and loving. 
Jesus is God the only begotten Son and He took our punishment upon Himself in our place.
Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death and securing the hope of our salvation.
We need only confess our sins, proclaim Jesus is lord and savior, and repent and we will be forgiven our sins and have life ever after!
Romans 3:10-18, 23
1 Corinthians 15:3-8
John 3:16-21
Ephesians 2:1-10

Leviticus 18:21; Matt. 5:17-19; Acts 2:37-41
