John 8:31-32 "So Jesus was saying to those Jews who
had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of
Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
John 1:17 "For the Law was given through Moses;
grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ."
We humbly submit ourselves to Your Word, who is Jesus
Christ (John 1). We submit ourselves to your grace and to your truth! Father,
we ask that in our personal lives, in our families, in our communities, and in
our nation that we would seek truth, honor truth, elevate truth as we honor
& elevate Your Word in our lives.
We thank you that as we continue in Your word, in truth,
and in grace as given to us in Jesus that we will be free! We will see and know
freedom in our lives and in the lives of our loved ones. Father, we ask you to
reveal more and more of Jesus to us!
On behalf of our nation, Father, we ask that grace and
truth be elevated, honored, and sought after in all areas: journalism,
politics, religion, family, faith, education, and all other areas! We ask that
Jesus be magnified in our nation! Father, we ask that lying lips be silenced
and that Your grace and truth reign in our lives and in the lives of this great
nation that we are so blessed to live in. Father, we ask that according to
Ephesians 1 that you would grant to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in
the knowledge of Jesus Christ; that you'd open the eyes of our understanding
that we would know what is the hope of Your calling and the glorious
inheritance of the saints - and the awesome working of your power towards us
who believe. Father, we thank you for eyes being opened across this nation.
Seeing they will see! Hearing they will hear!
Then as we seek, hear, see, and follow after Jesus Christ
- who is truth - then we will know and continue in the truth and the truth will
set us free; families healed and mended; marriages restored; communities drawn
together to honor You; a nation emboldened to stand for Christ. In Jesus Name
we pray! Be magnified, Oh Lord! Amen.
I'd like to thank Heather Yanta for today's prayer, she
