A Bible prayer to begin Advent

This year, Advent began on the first day of December and will continue to Christmas week. The timing is appropriate since the very word “Advent” comes from a Latin root, which means “come” or “coming.” Therefore, this special season of the church calls on Christians from every part of the Body of Christ to prepare the way for the Lord in our individual and corporate lives. May Paul's prayer help us to get started in this year’s advent ure into Advent: 1 Thessalonians 5:23–24, 28 – a prayer of Paul Dear God, sanctify us through and through – through You – our God of peace. May our whole bodies, souls, and spirits be free of blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, for You are faithful and can do anything! May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with us all. from the Book of Bible Prayers – actual prayers collected from the Bible and paraphrased by Mary Harwell Sayler , ©2019 For those who prefer the King James Version of t

The Bible calls us to pray

On all occasions at all times with all kinds of requests, pray in the Spirit. Keep alert! Keep on praying and praying for the people of God. And pray also for me that whenever I speak, words may be given as a message from God bravely revealing the mystery of the Gospel to which I am bound to be an ambassador. © 2013, Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-phrase of the Apostle Paul's letter to the Ephesians, chapter 6, verses 18-20 ..

Bible prayer for the church forever

The Apostle Paul gave us this ongoing prayer in his letter to the Christians at Ephesus: As I kneel before the Father from Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, I pray for the riches of God’s glory to empower you with strength in the Holy Spirit, deep within your inner being where Christ lives in your hearts of faith bound to His boundless love, and I pray for you – and all of the Family of God – to comprehend how wide, how long, how high and deep is the love of Christ and how incomprehensible is the full measure of God’s endless love endlessly filling you. Now to Him, Who is able to do immeasurably more than we imagine or ask as His power works within us – to Him be Glory in the church Body of Christ and the Family of God for every generation, forever and ever. Amen. © 2013, Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-phrase poem from Ephesians 3:14-20 ~~
