Fulfilling My Role

Let the godly sing for joy to the Lord; it is fitting for the pure to praise Him. Praise the Lord with melodies on the lyre; make music for him on the ten-stringed harp. Sing a new song of praise to Him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy. For the word of the Lord holds true, and we can trust everything he does. He loves whatever is just and good; the unfailing love of the Lord fills the earth.  

Holy Spirit I realize that like Paul, I am created by You for a purpose and I can claim as he did when he said: “But by the grace of God I am what I am. And His grace toward me was not in vain. I labored more abundantly than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. [1 Corinthians 15:10; 1 Corinthians 15:58] 

Holy Spirit I have been faithfully praying over pastors, churches, denominations, friends, prayer requests, communities, and family for most of my Spiritual life and I have led in this prayer to others since 2012. I may never be rich or famous, but I will always know I can come to You and lay down petitions from the heart to intercede, seek, or ask for healing for others and myself. I know from Your word that my labor is not in vain and that I will not let Satan cause depression within me for “only” leading in prayers. I praise You for at least allowing me this privilege in serving Your kingdom and others.  

I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you because your faith is being reported all over the world. God, whom I serve with my whole heart in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness to how constantly I always remember you in my prayers. I long to impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong—that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith. I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. For in the gospel righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith. (Romans 1:8-17) I will always do my best to live by faith and trust in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
