LOVE ONE ANOTHERSCRIPTURES:
Well, its starts by being in the ultimate relationship–one with God. That’s when he becomes the skilled, master surgeon, and begins performing the heart transplants we all critically need.
Jeremiah 17:9-10 The Message (MSG) 9-10 “The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful, a puzzle that no one can figure out.But I, God, search the heart and examine the mind. I get to the heart of the human. I get to the root of things. I treat them as they really are, not as they pretend to be.”
Father, we come before you with a critical need, its a matter of the heart. We pray that you would transplant our cold, mean, selfish, evil, perverted hearts and give us new hearts with a renewed mind. Please let us accept and not reject these new hearts. Hearts that pray for each other, intercede for others, and by our mutual faith “believe in miracles” for one another. Hearts that are persistent, knocking and pressing in, through this faith, prayer and obedience, removing all that stands in our way of hearing, obeying and accomplishing your purpose for us. AMEN.
Love, Joy and Peace,
Debra J. Ellis
Reminder AND/OR for those of you just joining us: The purpose of Fast Wednesdays is to draw near to God on this specific day of the week fasting and praying in whatever manner the Holy Spirit is leading you as sisters (and some brothers) in Christ…some have fasted from social media, coffee, or observed a traditional fast with no eating from sunrise to sunset with only liquids for the day, no deserts, etc. I know many of us, for various reasons, participate every week but in different manners. This has still been beneficial and the blog continues to grow!
The key ingredient is that we are doing this together as sisters, of all ages, in the Lord, both chronologically and spiritually in accordance to: A God-Filled Life Titus 2:3-5 “Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness. By looking at them, the younger women will know how to love their husbands and children, be virtuous and pure, keep a good house, be good wives. We don’t want anyone looking down on God’s Message because of their behavior.” Note: Please share Fast Wednesdays with your friends and/or send me names to add to the distribution list. For now, I will post in three places: email (firstname.lastname@example.org), Facebook (Debra Fuller Ellis) and blog in Word Press: https://fastwednesdays.wordpress.com/
