Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- June 9

Dear Lord Jesus, if and when I as a Christian spend time in quiet meditation, it is then that You can reveal "new insights" through the Holy Spirit to my spirit. ... For example, You did not send Your people -- those who have accepted You, Jesus Christ, as Lord and Savior -- to bring peace to the world.* Rather, You want Your people to find an "inner peace" within themselves when they faithfully live out Your will as You reveal it to them! ... But Your peace is not a passive peace! You call us to recognize Satan's wiles and the many ways in which we are being misled and deceived. We Christians are expected to "storm the gates of hell" wherever we encounter them; for only then will we have that precious peace that comes from knowing that we have stood against evil as You did in Your day. ... Oh Lord, give all of us, who call ourselves "Your people," the foresight, the strength and the will to stand for Your truth! That will be our real test, won't it?

In Your holy name we pray.
