Household Prayer: Boldness, Fear Not

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble… “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah” Psalm 46:1, 10-11 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.46.1-11.ESV

Brothers, today I am praying for boldness in faith, boldness in love, boldness in witness, and boldness in our parenting. “Heavenly Father… Show us how we can obey Your command to ‘fear not’ and to trust in Your faithfulness and power… Fill us with trust in You that surpasses all understanding and free us from the bondage of fear. May Your Spirit fill us with great faith and peace today so that we can do Your will with joy and confidence. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.” – Awake America

Boldness – Fear not!

“Heavenly Father, help us to bring our fears to You, knowing that they will disappear in the light of Your glory. Show us how we can obey Your command to fear not and to trust in Your faithfulness and power — even when it seems that all hope is lost. Thank You that, in the midst of trials, troubles, and difficulties, You will never forsake Your children. Fill us with trust in You that surpasses all understanding and free us from the bondage of fear. May Your Spirit fill us with great faith and peace today so that we can do Your will with joy and confidence. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.” Awake America https://www.awakeamerica2022.com/

Pray for Peoria, America, and western civilization, pray for our children and future generations.

“Heavenly Father, thank You for the Biblical principles upon which Western civilization was founded. As forces in our culture seek to undermine godly values, help us to hold fast to the Truths of Your Word. Prepare me and all missionaries You have called to the West for the work of Your Great Commission. Guard us from being allured by the cultural temptations of comfort, emotionalism, and ease. Give us a burden for the lost in our midst, that we would be bold, humble, and loving ambassadors for You as we go out into our communities. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.” Awake America https://www.awakeamerica2022.com/


THE GOOD NEWS

There is a God that created the heavens and the earth. We humans are created in His image.

We are sinners, we have rebelled against Him, our Creator. Our rebellion has brought “all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice… envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness” to the world. Romans 1:29-31 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/rom.1.29-31.ESV

Therefore we justly deserve our due punishment of death and damnation, “as it is written: ‘None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.’” Romans 3:10-12 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/rom.3.10-12.ESV

But good news! 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. 

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.” 1 Corinthians 15:3-8 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/1co.15.3-8.ESV

We need only believe it, confess our sins, proclaim Jesus is lord and savior, and we will be forgiven our sins and have life ever after! “because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”” Romans 10:9-11 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/rom.10.9-11.ESV

There is hope. Believe in Jesus! ““For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.3.16.ESV 

It doesn’t matter who you’ve been or what you’ve done, God stands with arms wide open, ready to forgive you. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/1jn.1.9.ESV
