James 5:16 “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”
The prayers of Intention and Intensity linger as light wool which the rains cause to cling
to the Body.
Thus petitions — lukewarm —
are those lacking great zeal
and are thread-bare as such… stealing warmth from the Body.
Therefore, lift in earnest your pleas unto JESUS…in WHOSE hands we find Heavens’ fabric — full covering!
So pray then with Passion’s devotion — progressing
till each request answered
when HIS Rapture clothes us!
As HIServant awaiting with you HIS spotless robes of righteousness,
Devotional: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of GOD in CHRIST JESUS for you.”
for most, we have heard the middle verse countless times through our life.
But context is king and GOD’s words matter more than anything. So the commandment to rejoice always and to give thanks in all circumstances are bookends to the “pray without ceasing“ quote.
Our prayers then increase in their zealous uplifting the more closely we entwine prayer with praise.
Such then creates the warmth of HIS robe around us in this life, amen?
So zealously press in and serve HIM relentlessly for — at the Rapture — we’ll exchange that covering for HIS righteous robe!
Amen and amen!
