Prayer for Today (Oct. 31, 202)

May your Fire
       within, ignite the fire in others.
May your Fragrance
       draw others to worship You.
May your Light
       shine in my actions and motives.
May your Holiness
       be revealed in the choices I make.
May your Love
       permeate my relationships.
May Your Fatherhood
       produce a father’s heart with wisdom for your people.
May Your Sacrifice
       bring me to self-less living.
May Your Life
       work in me that death by which Your resurrection is known.
May Your Grace
       produce a will-ing-ness to do of your good pleasure.
May Your Lordship
       free me from the bondages of self and make me fully yours.
May Your Offering
       birth the offering of myself unto You.

May You be my Amen.

“Not as though I had already attained…”
Philippians 3:12

Hence the prayer. The cry for Him and the Fire of Him burns within the unfinished life. The desire to bear His image will be in proportion to our seeing of Him. The desire for His fulness is the womb from which true prayers are birthed (John 15:7). “Praying in the Holy Spirit” arises from those who know of a call far greater than the life they now live.

Three Degrees of
Spiritual Knowledge

“We are told of three degrees of spiritual knowledge which for us, are the true content of the Divine Wisdom.

  1. There is the knowledge of God Himself in Christ, thus Paul prays ‘that I may know Him’. For Paul this is the excellency of knowledge, compared with which all else is as the refuse of the field.
  2. There is the knowledge of God’s Will; thus Paul says ‘We do not cease to pray for you that ye might be filled with the knowledge of His Will.’
  3. There is the knowledge of His Gifts; thus Paul writes ‘We have received the Spirit which is of God, that ye might know the things that are freely given us of God.’

It is in this knowledge that Christ Jesus is made unto us Wisdom. It will make fools of us before the world, but we can be quiet in the assurance that the wisdom of God shall at the last be justified in all of her children.
– Geoffrey T. Bull

“That I might know Him”

This is the cry of every true believer. May we grow in the full knowledge of Himself, His Will and to be faithful stewards of His unmerited gifts.
