PRAYER GUIDE, “DETERMINING FACTORS OF READINESS,” 23.05.19
Father, bring these aspects of relationship and each individual’s walk before each individual believer, with conviction of what is lacking, and stimulate and motivate, inciting each and every believer to make themselves ready to endure whatever portion of the Great Tribulation must be endured, for all Your promises are given to him who overcomes (Rev.2:7). Readiness to endure the Great Tribulation = readiness for Messiah’s return, which is what brings the Great Tribulation to an end; so enlighten the eyes of all Your people’s understanding that they will make preparation for this event.
Awaken Your people, O Lord, for just as Jesus/Yeshua warned: “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another” (Matt. 24:9,10). Make us ready for all manner of tribulation, persecution, whatever we may need to endure. Let us not forget that Jesus/Yeshua also said: “many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved” (Matt. 24:11-13). So if we want to endure to the end, we must not receive deceptive, seductive, false teachings, many of which are rampant today. Keep our love for You, Lord, first and foremost, and let us not get caught up in any form of error.
May we surrender to Your will in every aspect of our lives that we may walk in a place of passion, for Your Word clearly substantiates Your hate for lukewarm followers, that if we are “neither cold nor hot, You will vomit us out of Your mouth” (Rev.3:15,16).
Make us to be those who qualify to inherit all these awesome promises:
“To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God” (Rev.2:7).
“Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life . . . . He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death” (Rev.2:10,11).
“To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it” (Rev.2:17).
“hold fast what you have till I come. And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—” (Rev.2:25,26).
“He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels” (Rev.3:5).
“Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name” (Rev.3:11,12).
“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne” (Rev.3:21).
Thank-You, Father, for these amazing and generous promises! I pray You will send Your Holy Spirit to prune each one in whatever way needed in order to qualify for these wonderful benefits. May we be “faithful unto death, that we may receive the Crown of Life” (Rev.2:10).
I pray for these ones to pass the tests of endurance which are yet to come, for only those who overcome/endure to the end are going to qualify. . . . “And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left” (Matt.25:33). Strengthen each one’s faith, commitment, and straighten out all crooked places that each follower/believer in Jesus/Yeshua would actually abide in You/You in him/her (John 15:4-7), thus dwell in that secret place (Ps.91:1) of oneness which will enable them to pass the tests, and bring them in line with these promises.
In Jesus/Yeshua’s Holy Name, I pray. Amen.
