PRAYER MOMENTS WITH GOD
With corresponding verses from the Old or New Testament.
Father God in Heaven, the Forgiver of Sins,
Many of us, before we accepted your gift of eternal life, have done things in our past we are not proud of. We thank you for your complete forgiveness of our sins, shown by not having respect of persons in holding them over our heads.
We pray that your people will also, not judge a man by what he has done in his past, being reminded themselves of the same grace and mercy, that has also forgiven them of the things they have done in their past, whether small or big. Help us Father, to know those whom you have called on for a specific assignment in helping to up build your kingdom, and to look beyond their past as they work to accomplish their work, as we are working to accomplish what you have given us. In Jesus name, Amen.
(Acts 9:11-16) And the Lord said unto him (Paul), Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prays, and has seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he has done to your saints at Jerusalem: And here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on your name.
But the Lord said unto him, Go your way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will show him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.
