The Spirit Of God

 

James 1:21
Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

What of Today’s Verse
Isn’t it true! When we find ourselves caught in the clutches of the moral filth of our culture, we find the word of God boring and irrelevant. Yet even in those moments when Satan uses sin to harden our hearts, God’s Spirit calls us to change at a level deeper than just the mere understanding of the words of Scripture. Thank God for his Spirit, which can use his word like a surgeons scalpel on our hearts?

Prayer
Holy God, I pledge to you today to willingly and decisively give up the immoral habits in my life. I recognize that these not only offend your holiness and grace, but also harden me to your will, pull me away from your character, and blunt my witness to others. Please forgive me and then sustain me as I seek to live a life wholly pleasing to you. In Jesus I pray. Amen.

Words of Wisdom

CIRCLE OF PRAYER
I join in a powerful circle of prayer with prayer partners throughout the world.

Many people of different faiths engage in the practice of prayer. Whatever the individual belief, prayer helps settle the body and open the heart and mind to a deeper awareness of God. All people who pray are part of a powerful circle of prayer.

When I turn within, I become part of the circle of praying people around the world. I remember the prayer partners in Silent Unity. I remember the children kneeling for night-time prayers and the people in pews and on prayer mats, wherever they may be.

Whenever I turn within for moments of prayer about a specific problem or situation, a circle of praying people supports me. In this awareness, I am overjoyed to be in a supportive circle of prayer with partners throughout the world.

“For my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”
–Isaiah 56:7
