PRAYER GUIDE: “SALT AND LIGHT: HOW DO WE GO ABOUT IT?” 29.01.19
Father, show me how to be that salt & light that Jesus/Yeshua taught His disciples to be.
I know that He said that we must season the earth with Your Truth, and shine His Light “before men so they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven,” (Matt.5:16), but sometimes it seems unclear how to do that.
Holy Spirit, remind me when there are open doors before me. Nudge me to go through and not side-step or overlook such opportunities to testify, to be salt & light for Jesus/Yeshua. I know I can never become the perfect teacher Jesus/Yeshua was here on earth, but enable me to be as Paul instructed, and “Always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you” (1 Pet.3:15). Just make me to walk in surrender, and put Your Words into my head, so I can speak Your Words of Truth, in love (Eph.4:15).
Give me such a hunger and a love for Your Word, that I will always have Your Words at Hand; and give me a comfort level with simply responding spontaneously to situations, just as Yeshua did when Nicodemus approached Him, and He told him how that he must be born again (John 3:3,6,7). Give me the gifts needed to address whatever situation comes before me, whether it’s speaking a word of knowledge, a word of wisdom, a prophetic word, words of compassion, kindness, comfort, edification, teaching, praying for healing or deliverance, whatever the case may be, for “Freely I have received, freely may I give” (Matt.10:1,7,8). Equip me, Father, by Your Spirit to do what is needed to be salt & Light to that individual in need.
I ask for opportunities to lead individuals to that place where they will drink of Your Living Water, for “the water that You give will become a fountain of water within them, springing up to eternal life!” (John 4:13,14). When I see someone in need, or ready to hear the Gospel, let me step up to the plate, and just do it. Give me the boldness to move forward in Your love, in Your authority.
May I show loving kindness and compassion, whether they are appealing and to my liking or not, for “You cause Your sun to rise on the evil and the good, and send rain on the righteous and the unrighteous” (Matt.5:44,45), so it is not up to me to pick & choose. Give me Your Heart, Yeshua/Holy Father, that I can see others through Your Eyes, hear them through Your Ears, and act out of Your Heart.
I thank-You, Heavenly Father, that I need no special credentials; that I only need to be armed and equipped with the Sword of the Spirit, and walk in the Spirit daily, to minister Your Truth to the lost (or to fellow believers in pain/bondages), and to give of my self and my time, to be that salt and light by the power of Your Holy Spirit, and in the Name of Yeshua/Jesus, I ask You to release me into those assignments now. Amen.
