The Believer’s Prayer

The Apostle Paul who essentially wrote the New Testament prayed for the churches to come into the fulness of what Christ had done for them.  These prayers are for us and they are similar to what Jesus prayed for all who would beleive on Him.  Jesus prayed in John 17:21-23 NLT, “I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one-as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.  I have given them the glory (the Holy Spirit) you gave me, so they may be one as we are one.  I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.”

The prayers Paul prayed expresses to us what the Holy Spirit wants to do in our lives as believers. He wants to bring us to a place of intimacy with God and unity with one another.  If you want to experience total freedom and victory in your life I challenge you to pray these prayers out loud over yourself every day and discover the freedom and victory the Spirit will bring into your life.  Take it a step further and pray in the Spirit (that is in other tongues) and you will tap into God’s grace, intimacy with God, unity with other believers, freedom and victory over the sin and struggles you face!

Father, in the name of Jesus, fill me with the knowledge of your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding…

…so that my life may honor and praise you…
