2 Corinthians 10:12(KJV)“For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”
LORD, You are Almighty God, Eternally Perfect, Perfectly Complete, Fountain of Holiness, Sovereignly Serene, Magnificently Merciful! We praise You, and worship You for Who You Are!
Holy Father, teach us to measure our spiritual growth by the measure to which we are “like Jesus.” We confess that we have often compared ourselves to each other, or other churches, and have exalted the spirit of self-righteousness rather than the Spirit of Holiness. We have measured ourselves by a sinfully wrong standard; therefore, we have arrived at significantly wrong results!
LORD, You are our Measuring Rod. You empower us to come to “the measure of the stature of Jesus Christ,” through the Power of the Holy Spirit. Help us to lean upon You and not our own understanding. Help us to acknowledge You in all our way, will, and work. Help us to keep spiritual eyes upon You and our spiritual hearts in tune with You with the faith that You are directing our paths.
LORD, we seek Your Face to abolish the legal murder of infants! We call upon You to grant a revival of righteousness in our nation. We pray for a rich harvest of souls, an increase of laborers in Your vineyard, and the Peace of Jerusalem. We ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Amen!
