Confirmation that one is on the right track fits like a tailor-made suit!
You may recall I’ve been praying in themes this week; don’t know how long it will be so. I have a huge propensity to expect GOD to do things the same way on a continual basis and that is appropriate in matters wherein He has told us He does not change. But I’m off point here. Forgive me.
Wednesday: that the LORD would COURT my people
Thursday: willing spirits
Today: a dose of honesty to fall
So that was my prayer for us all. And since I have not written a post for today – well, you know here I am sharing with you. So for this post, I first keyed in honesty at Bible Gateway dot-com, and here’s the result:
1 Timothy 2:1-3 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,
2for kings and for all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
via 1 Timothy 2:1-3 KJ21 – I exhort therefore, first of all, that – Bible Gateway.
And so I received this blessed confirmation that for today, the theme is surely correct. For you see every Friday is specific prayer day for the President, his family; Congress and the House; Governmental Officials all the way down to my City Officials.
And what was today’s theme: a dose of honesty to fall?
And what does the TEXT read?
I welcome you to join in this prayer for a dose of honesty. For sure I know, every one of us needs on a daily basis to be fully honest with ourselves before GOD and perhaps there are some others in our lives that we need to come clean with – not in anger or maliciousness but with the Love and Honesty of the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Thank You, Father. You have heard and I pray now for a healthy dose of honesty to fall upon us all. And again we pray and ask that You heal our sick and raise the spiritually dead to eternal life. Amen and ____________.
We have the God-given Right to do right in this wrong World,
P.S. that closing is one of my favorites that I have used all these years.
I am mindful to be honest as I edit this post from April 2012, here in January of 2023, Friday has not been a day for specific praying for governmental offices for a long while.
During these 11 years, some things have changed for me like the placing of confidence in political leaders.
I don’t do that anymore.
I do desire to see people convinced of sin, of Righteousness, and of judgment to come. I do desire to see people saved, including people holding political office.
I do see America with new eyes; even so, more so, I want all people, including American People, to repent and be delivered from darkness.
Today, I maintain a godly appreciation for the abundant comforts and luxuries here in America, but as GOD’s people, we owe our full allegiance to our Father and King. With all our beings, we must be looking for His Return and allow HIM to prepare us for His Return — we can’t do that fretting politics.
One more thought: praying for a dose of honesty — I am sure Father heard and I am sure He was willing to gift every willing soul with a complete dose of honesty.
Eleven years gives evidence — The majority of people in America have rejected GOD — particularly those in political offices. Still, we can pray for a dose of honesty to yet be received one by one.
