Pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Diocesan Convention.
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 1 John 3:1 (NKJV)
Father, thank you for adopting me and calling me your child.
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 1 John 3:2 (NKJV)
Dad, continue to reveal your love for us to us.
And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. 1 John 3:3 (NKJV)
Dad, let hope in Jesus purify us daily.
Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. 1 John 3:4 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, set me free from lawlessness.
And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. 1 John 3:5 (NKJV)
Jesus, thank you for taking away my sin.
Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him. 1 John 3:6 (NKJV)
Jesus, please help me abide in you day by day.
Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. 1 John 3:7 (NKJV)
Jesus, thank you for your righteousness.
And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment. 1 John 3:23 (NKJV)
Help me, Jesus, obey your command to believe in your name and love others as you command us.
A Word Received: Listen, listen for my word to you. Listen for my prompting. Listen in hope and expectation.
