A Supplication: Keep Jesus Alive in Us, is a quick prayer that a brother in the Lord Winston Smith wanted to share here on the Preach It section. Just before I went to release this page, he had sent another one that he wanted to be included, so please give that up to the Lord as well! Winston spends his time building websites and mobile apps for churches. Go to Winstons Mobile Cell Phone Apps and check out what he’s got going on!
Grace+Faith = Righteousness
Lord our God, our Father in heaven, we thank you for letting us receive so much that is good in all circumstances on earth. We thank you that we can have joy in life in spite of our shortcomings, mistakes, and worries. You bless us with heavenly gifts, so that rejoicing, we can walk on earth as if in heaven. Keep the gifts of your Spirit alive in us. Keep alive in us everything that Jesus Christ was, everything he is, and everything he will be on earth for all people. Amen.
To compliment this supplication given up unto the Lord, I feel it right to point out that there’s a good deal of scripture being applied in this prayer, and I’d like to include it for you to have it in your heart as you pray along with Winston.
Lord our God, our Father in heaven,
2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.
we thank you for letting us receive so much that is good in all circumstances on earth.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
We thank you that we can have joy in life in spite of our shortcomings, mistakes, and worries.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
You bless us with heavenly gifts, so that rejoicing, we can walk on earth as if in heaven.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Keep the gifts of your Spirit alive in us.
13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
1 Corinthians 12
3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. 4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. 12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
Keep alive in us everything that Jesus Christ was, everything he is, and everything he will be on earth for all people.
14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
Thank you for reading and praying along with this prayer lifting up the brethren, recognizing what the Lord has given, and giving thanks to the Lord. I’d also like to thank Winston Smith for his submission to the site! As if it were meant to be included before the release of this page, there is yet another quick prayer that he would like to be included:
You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. 1 Thessalonians 5:5–6, NIV
Dear Father in heaven, we thank you that we may be your children. We thank you that through your Spirit our hearts may know that we are your children. Even when everything around us becomes difficult and we are hemmed in by darkness, we remain your children. Even when we often do not see how we are to go on and everything seems to be taken from us, we remain your children. Even when sin and death surround us and accuse us of being in the wrong, we still remain your children. As your children we entrust ourselves to your hands. In our whole life, in all our work and activity, we dwell in what has come from you, and we rejoice in Christ our Savior. Amen.
Amen and Amen, and thank you Brother in the Lord for you submission, and for your heart toward the Lord and toward the Body of Christ in Jesus name!
