"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests." Ephesians 6:18 NIV
You might have noticed I have used the same scripture for the past few days. I can't let go of it right now. It is such a powerful truth and I want to drive it home in my heart and yours.
I pray for those who receive my blog, and I care about your spiritual growth.I may have never met you before, but God knows exactly who you are and every detail in your life.
I trust Him to make these blogs personal to you by His Holy Spirit. Only Jesus can minister through my words to your heart and situation. He is beyond faithful to us!
I wish I had a stronger word than faithful to use. It isn't enough to express how wonderful our Father in heaven is to us. Sarah Reeves expresses faithfulness in her song, "Faithful".
The dictionary uses steadfast, unswerving, and committed to describe faithful. We can stack these words together and still not reach the magnitude of the faithfulness our God demonstrates toward us.
I haven't mentioned the picture at the top yet. These are our first two children, Rudy and Rachel. Rachel graduated from Depaul Law School in May. Rudy graduated from Hofstra Law School in 2015. They are precious to us.
They have worked hard for their degrees, and we have prayed. Obstacles came out of nowhere in seemed, but they persevered. We believing God to use them mightily. Prayer was lifted up for them before they were born.
I'm sure most of you can relate to this. When we don't know what to pray, the Spirit intercedes for us. The gift of tongues is able to pray through us to the Father when we don't know how or what to pray. Isn't this amazing?
