Prayers For You

Father, we have been privileged to understand your system; the kingdom of God. In the times and seasons in which we are now, you are providing opportunities to your children to get closer to you and know you for who you really are to us. We say thank you for teaching us the many steps to take into living godly lives. We have come to an understanding that in order to live godly, it requires some purposeful actions on our part.
Father, this season, we have been enlightened about the significance of living purpose-driven lives, we have been reminded that our actions should be in line with what the Father approves and that will not only stay at a place godliness but we will increase in godliness.

Father, thank you for teaching us to be children who learn and come to a knowledge of the truth.
As we continue to grow, we will keep the faith, we’ll purposefully become vessels of honor. We will add value to others. We will develop a personal relationship with you to a place whereby we will have personal encounters and testimonies of our relationship with you.

Father, our desire is to pursue undivided fellowship with you and fellow brethren. We began this journey from salvation with the spirit and we will continue in the spirit. We choose to persist in prayers and the word and develop an uncommon desire to grow in the fruit and gifts of the spirit.
Father, thank you for the gift of life, for the privilege to be alive. For as long as we live we will use our lives to be blessings to the people around us, for your glory Father. Thank you.

Develop An Uncommon Desire To Grow In The Fruit And Gifts Of The Spirit

Galatians 5:22-23 (NKJV)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.  Against such, there is no law.

1 Corinthians 12:8-10 (NKJV)
 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.

So much needs to be said here about the fruit of the spirit and the gifts of the spirit which cannot be covered within 5minutes. However, I will say this, develop an uncommon desire to grow in the fruit and the gifts of the spirit. We had established that the godly lifestyle is the spirit led lifestyle. The spirit has so much to offer; in this case fruit and gifts. Set some time aside and begin studying on the fruit and the gifts of the spirit. There are 9 fruit and 9 gifts of the spirit. It is worth mentioning that Galatians 5:22 mentions “the fruit” of the spirit not “fruits”. Meaning with the spirit of God within you, you cannot have one fruit apart from the other. You might be more generous with some over others. All you need to do is continually work on them in order to get to a place of maturity. Amen.

For the gifts of the spirit, do not be ignorant about their existence. Paul in 1 Corinthians 12: 1 says this “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant:” They are available for you. Note that it says gifts – so there is nothing you can do to get them but to live godly and earnestly develop an uncommon desire to receive them. Know about them in detail, desire to get them and the Father will honor your requests. Amen.
Your growth in the fruit of the spirit will benefit you. The gifts of the spirit given to you will benefit the body of Christ.  The fruit of the spirit, the gift of the spirit and the power of the spirit within you will together produce the anointing. Amen.
