As I open up my Bible this morning, I opened it up to:
Jesus’ Teaching on Prayer
Luke 11: Verses 1-4
1 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.
3 Give us day by day our daily bread.
4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.
Matthew 6:9-13 The Lord’s Prayer – King James Version
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
The New English Version
Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be your Name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done,
On earth as in Heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins As we forgive those Who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation But deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, And the glory are yours Now and forever. Amen.
I will always be sharing scriptures with you from the King James version. 🙂
This week I’m seeking comfort through the Word and prayer…
Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished , that her iniquity is pardoned : for she hath received of the LORD’S hand double for all her sins.
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted , and every mountain and hill shall be made low : and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
The voice said , Cry . And he said, What shall I cry ? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: The grass withereth , the flower fadeth : because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass. The grass withereth , the flower fadeth : but the word of our God shall stand for ever. O Zion, that bringest good tidings , get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidingtidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up , be not afraid ; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!
I found the following scriptures quite powerful and comforting. If we ourselves are comforted of and by God, how much more that we can comfort our children, brothers, sisters and spouses? 🙂
2 Corinthians Chaper 1: 1-4
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:
2 Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
Please feel free to share any scriptures with us that you find comforting. 🙂
