Speak this verse aloud (and take time today to memorize it):
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. “ II Corinthians 1:3-4 (ESV)
Pray this prayer aloud:
Dear heavenly Father, I thank You for Your inspired Word. I thank You for the manner in which You supernaturally ordained Your servant, Paul, to remind me of Your unending mercy, compassion and tender care for me, Your child. I pray that You would, by Your grace, enable me to receive Your mercy and comfort now, that I might go forth and share mercy and comfort with someone else today. Father, bring to my mind right now someone that needs prayer, help or encouragement today. (Pause to allow God to bring people to your mind.) I pray that I would never forget that Your mercy and comfort are never-ending, daily realities, that I might be a blessing to others, all to Your glory and praise. I ask this in the Name above every name, the Name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Thank You for praying with the Christ Church Family! May God hearten you today and may You see His hand at work in your life!
