NOTE: When you read this prayer, try to imagine hearing my voice as I speak it to you. In this way, the prayer is reactivated, and it is the same as if I were actually praying for you at that moment. (Just like television prayers are reactivated when you watch them, although the videotape may have been shot years before.)
Sunday, 5-19-96 "For Mrs. J. T. Of Texas, By Request"
She asked . . .
I ASK THAT YOU PRAY FOR ME TO GROW STRONGER IN THE LORD AND TO KEEP ALL
HIS LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS, SO THAT I MIGHT REAP THE REWARD OF SALVATION.
She received . . .
For Mrs. J. T. Of Texas, By Request
The Lord says, "if you ask, you shall receive."
And "as you do, it shall be done to you."
To "love the Lord thy God with all thy heart."
And then, to "love thy neighbor as thy self."
These are the things He wants from you and me,
On these the law and prophets both depend.
The scribes and pharisees observed the Law,
But yet they did not know Him when He came.
So Law alone is never quite enough.
And that is why our Lord has come to us:
To free us from dependence on the Law,
And share with us His Spirit in our soul.
For filled with Him, we rarely go astray;
And if we do, He quickly doth forgive.
* * *
And so I pray for you the things you ask:
I pray that you grow stronger in the Lord.
I pray that you observe His holy laws,
And all of His commandments you do keep,
In order that salvation comes to you.
But more than these, and over all the rest,
I pray His Holy Spirit fills your heart.
In Jesus' name I pray these things for you.
Written for Mrs. J. T. of Texas, by request.
