Know, Understand, Do

I will praise You, O Lord! You were angry with me, but not anymore. Now You comfort me. See, God has come to save me. I will trust in Him and not be afraid. The Lord God is my strength and my song; He has given me victory. With joy, You will drink deeply from the fountain of salvation! On that wonderful day you sing; Thank the Lord! Praise His name! Tell the nations what he has done. Let them know how mighty He is! Sing to the Lord, for He has done wonderful things. Make known His praise around the world. [Isaiah 12:1-5, NLT] 

Holy Spirit Your word says: Whatever I do, I need to do it heartily for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord I will receive the reward of the inheritance. For I serve the Lord Christ. But those who do wrong will receive for the wrong which they have done and there is no partiality. [Colossians 3:23-25, MEV] So I come to You for wisdom and understanding on how to do all that I need for Christ. I will continually offer up my life as a living sacrifice so that I will know, understand, and do the will of God. Help me to daily renew my mind so that I have no distractions, or sinful thoughts lingering, and can think clearly enough to know I am doing what is right in Your eyes.  

Holy Spirit I come to You with a request for healing for Josh, who is 25 and has cancer that has spread into his lymph nodes and beyond. I ask that You would heal him completely and let this 25-year-old be a witness to Your healing and mercy. I continue to seek healing for Kayla who has cancer and multiple other health issues, Angel who has cancer, and Cindy who has cancer of the Liver. I pray that You will heal them, comfort them and bless those who help care for each of these suffering people.  

I also ask intercessory prayer for Jack, Luke, Amanda, Eva, Isabelle, Quinten, Trent, Asa, Wyatt, Joshua, Sophia, Aletha, Josh, Brenna, Caleb, Rueben, and Sam. I pray that each will find their way to You and salvation. Continue to move on their hearts and bring people into their lives that will force them to think, feel and teach who You are in a way that will help them see the need to have You in their lives.  

I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in  
Christ Jesus. For by grace, you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. In Jesus Name Amen. (Ephesians 1:15-23; 2:1-10)
