My intention for Praying God’s Word Wednesday was to change the background on these thumbprints to commemorate 1 year of praying scripture together. And to create a benchmark for me to decipher one year’s posts from the next. April 7th was that one year anniversary and here it is April 27th before I mention it to you – or honestly thought of it myself. What a month it has been. Come back on Friday for a recap of that, but now lets pray Hebrews 3:6 together. Not before I thank you for meeting with me here every week. This time is so precious to me and I really appreciate all of you that have reached out to let me know you feel the same!
“But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.” Hebrews 3:6 NIV
The minute we grasp on to Jesus, we become His house. His Holy Spirit resides in us. What a privilege! And what greater reason for confidence in our hope, God’s victory and eternal glory that will be his and ours! In this world it is so easy to loose sight of such eternal things. I have had those moments just this week! And that is one of the reasons I love this time together every Wednesday. We encourage each other and you all (or y’all here in Texas) remind me that this victory and glory is guaranteed!
I reached out to a friend today who’s daughter is heartbroken over circumstances she cannot presently control. And if you happen to have a child, you know that if said child is heartbroken – so is mama. So I prayed this scripture and prayer over my friend and her daughter and thought there might be some of you in the blogosphere that could use prayer over a broken heart as well.
Amen. Thank you for a year’s worth of communal prayer and I hope you’ll stick around for another. Replace the pronouns with the appropriate ones for the person (or yourself) that you are praying for.
Praying for you in this. And don’t forget to share on social media or with a friend who could benefit. It would mean so much to me. And if you don’t want to miss a Praying God’s Word Wednesday, subscribe over on the right hand side of this page.
