My Prayer For You*January 18, 2015*

My prayer for you and me this week...

we would seek wisdom from Holy Spirit to understand unity 

with Christ 

afforded us

by our relationship with Him

by faith

as He is the Vine

and we are His branches.

Holy Spirit fill us with Your presence.

Root out of us every characteristic which

is not of Christ.

Wash us in the Word of God.

Water us with Living Water.

Fertilize us just enough to help us grow

and no more that we might perish.

Prune us as necessary that we might thrive

and bear healthy and delicious, abundant fruit

for Your Kingdom.

And as we abide, our branches attached to Your Vine, 

we rejoice in our true identity.

We are seed bearers for our Vine Dresser's Vineyard.

We rejoice in Your care for us,

and we rejoice in the growth of new branches and new fruit 

and more seed bearers.

For the Glory of our Savior and King,

may we fulfill Your commandment, Jesus, 

to love one another as You have loved us.

For You loved us and died for us even when we were far off, 

disinterested, self sufficient, foes and rebels.  

While we were still antagonistic and apathetic 

toward Your sacrificial gift of grace,

You loved us.

And so, Lord Jesus, Your love within us 

will compel us to love those who are now as we were;

Your love compels us to remember, 

"You suffered the cross for them as You did for me."

Give our hearts a love makeover, Lord Jesus, 

that our hearts might beat in rhythm with Yours.

Amen and Amen.

John 15:1-12 & Romans 5:6-11
