Pray It Out  “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.” – Romans 15:13 (KJV)

Praying based on the Holy Scriptures is a sure way to attract the attention of God. Apostle Paul prayed for the Roman Christians in his letter to them, and when they had read the letter, they said ‘Amen’ to his prayer. In like manner, any time we read or study the Holy Bible and encounter a prayer in it, we can personalize that prayer and conclude by saying ‘Amen’.

Dear beloved, even now you can personalize the prayer in the opening scripture and say a big ‘Amen’ to conclude it. Indeed, we are serving the God of hope who is capable of bringing joy and peace into our lives. However, we must first believe that He is able to do it and He will abound us in hope through the power of the Holy Spirit (Mark 9:23).

Beloved, did you realize that faith and hope were mentioned in Apostle Paul’s prayer? Yes, the two are very important in every Christian’s life. Faith is needed for our present situation while hope takes care of the future, especially when the promises of God appear to be delayed. Remember, Abraham hoped against hope before finally receiving his promise of Isaac (Romans 4:18–22).

Beloved, make up your mind to serve the Lord forever and turn your life into praise and thanksgiving onto God; joy and peace will remain in your life till all the promises of God are fulfilled in your life. Hallelujah! Be prayerful!

Prayer Point: My precious Holy Father, You are very wonderful for always thinking about me, and You have planned to continually bless me in Your Word. Please continually empower me by Your Spirit never to give up, but to keep believing and hoping in your promises and serve You in joy and peace till all Your promises come to pass in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
