I Should End In Prayer...

"Jesus told them another parable: 'The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?' 'An enemy did this,' he replied. The servants asked him, 'Do you want us to go and pull them up?' 'No,' he answered, 'because while you are pulling the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.'" Matthew 13:24-30

Lord, we realize that there are those among the Church who are there for various motives. We pray that your Spirit would convict and convert these souls that are either deceptive or themselves deceived about their position with you. Make it clear and distinct in their hearts, which only You can do.

And God, protect your sheep! Keep them aware. Don't let them be harmed. Give them your wisdom and let their eyes be open. Surround them with godly counsel, men and women who have walked with you and watched their lives.

Most of all, for all of us who love your name, Jesus, we ask that you would come quickly! We know that these things must be, and that as the time comes for your return, that they will happen with greater frequency. Lord, come; make us long for your righteousness and ultimate vindication where you will separate the righteous unto yourself, where we will never be threatened or deceived again. Lord, let those who have been hurt and betrayed, look forward with greater anticipation to your final vindication of their cases and give them patience today to wait for you to bring that to pass.

It's in Jesus name that I ask these things,


Blessings...To Our Friends,
