A Week of Thirteens: Day Four

A Week of Thirteens

I have never claimed to be clever or original. However, 2013 is somewhat significant to me. As a result I came up with the idea of “A Week of Thirteens.

Day Four:    Thirteen Prayer Requests for 2013

1.  ... for the speedy return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His Assembly

2.  ...  for peace in Jerusalem

3.  ... for a true moving of God's Holy Spirit in His local congregations

4.  ... for God's name to be hallowed on earth as it is in heaven

5.  ... for laborers to enter the already ripe and ready harvest

6.  ... for the eyes of true believers to be enlightened in order to that they may know the hope of His calling and the riches of the glory of His inheritance in all of the saints

7.  ... for His will to be done and not mine (yours) on earth as it is in Heaven

8.  ... for the making of disciples from every nation, from all tribes, and peoples, and languages

9.  ...for local congregations to gain a vision for unreached peoples and to realign themselves in obedience with the Great Commission

10.  ...  for all men, for kings and all who are in authority that we may lead a quiet and peacable life in all godliness and reverence

11.  ...for Christ to dwell in your hearts by faith, that Christ personally and immediately inhabits His people by spiritual meditations upon and loving contemplations of His complex person, His glorious titles, His mediatorial offices, His precious promises, His wise precepts, He might have a constant place, the supreme place in our thoughts and in our affections, in order to have a spiritual sight of Christ, a spiritual knowledge of Him, a spiritual enjoyment of Him, so that He would be present and precious to the soul; and that can only be by the exercise of faith in Him as He is revealed in the Scriptures. (Gleanings from Paul, A. W. Pink, p. 169)

12.  ...for God's glory to be revealed and magnified in the lives of His people

13.  ... for an awakening in the souls of men by the Spirit of God for God and His Word
