Keep On Praying.
“And so we keep on praying for you, that our God will make you the kind of children he wants to have—will make you as good as you wish you could be!—rewarding your faith with his power. Then everyone will be praising the name of the Lord Jesus Christ because of the results they see in you; and your greatest glory will be that you belong to him. The tender mercy of our God and of the Lord Jesus Christ has made all this possible for you.” 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 (TLB)
I don’t do New Year’s resolutions (that fizzle out and fail). Instead, as a Christian, I want resolutions that are eternal. Prayer is one. Do you have a situation or person in your life that needs prayer? Commit to pray continuously. Pray with fervor. Petition God. Keep on praying. God is listening. He is working.
2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 is one I am praying over for my Church, for me, and for some specific people in my life. As a child of God, I want to grow more like Jesus. I want to be all that He wants me to be. And, as an added bonus, He gives us His power! I want others to see Him in me.
