VINE PRAYER: PRAY GOD’S WORD TO HEAR HIM IN A NOISY WORLD

[NOTE: Hi, Friends. I’ll be taking off the month of July. I pray all is well with you until we meet again for prayer in August…]

Lord God, everywhere we turn, we see and hear people sharing their every thought.

The world is noisy with the opinions of man—often with nothing useful to say. Many acting as fools who have no pleasure in understanding, only delighting in airing their own opinions.

In these strange days and times, our ears itch for knowledge and insight.

But we spend so much time talking at each other. Who is listening to You, Lord?

With our nations in chaos and kingdoms crumbling, You lift your voice to tell us be still and know that You are God. You will be exalted among the nations and in the earth.

So we look away from self and others to exalt You.

To magnify your name, your power, your word in every circumstance. As your temple, we ask You to fill us with your presence that all the earth would keep silent before You.

And we open wide our mouths asking You to fill them, Lord, so when we speak we add value, not noise. Your words are wisdom and life.

Laying aside all confidence in flesh, we cry out for more of You.

Only You know the way we should go. We look to You for truth in the midst of confusion. And we center our lives around Christ.

Speak Lord, we are listening. It’s in the eternal name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Inspired by Psalm 46:10.

VINE PRAYER: PRAY GOD’S WORD TO RECEIVE THE FATHER’S CORRECTION

Father we thank You for the gift of no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. And because Jesus took our guilt and the punishment our sin deserved—You will never punish us.

But You will correct us.

You do it because a loving father is careful to discipline his children.

Your discipline proves our legitimacy as children released from the bondage to fear, now calling you ABBA or DADDY, by your Holy Spirit.

But we don’t enjoy correction, even justifying our wrongs to avoid it.

We repent of our foolishness.

And we change our minds to view your correction like our earthly fathers’ correction. 

We didn’t like theirs’ either—but when we look back, we respect our fathers. They disciplined us as they thought best to keep us from self-destruction.

And for those of us who didn’t have a father growing up, your correction feels like more rejection.

But Father, You do all things well, pursuing us with love, and disciplining us so we reflect You. 

To resemble our DADDY.

And because of it, we’re growing in integrity, enjoying the peace it brings.

So Holy Spirit, help us endure ABBA’s rebuke. Remind us it’s not out of anger. His correction is not to destroy but to develop children with His character.

And Father, guide us in the way of wisdom. Lead us along straight paths because your correction is the way to life.

You are a good and faithful Father. And we honor You today and always. It’s in the name of Jesus, the Firstborn of many, we pray. Amen.

Inspired by Hebrews 12:10
