Day 3 – For All the Saints
Scriptures to Meditate and Pray Through –
“By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35).
“That all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me” (John 17:21).
“I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me” (Romans 15:30).
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8).
How to Pray: In the Love of the Spirit –
If we are to pray, we must love those for whom we pray. With hearts fully submitted to God, let us resolve to love all people, and especially every brother or sister in Christ. Let us pray in the fervency of this love, receiving the love of the Spirit.
What to Pray: For All the Saints –
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints” (Ephesians 6:18). Every member of a body is interested in the welfare of the whole body and exists to help and complete the others. Believers are one body and are to pray not so much for the welfare of their own church or group but for all the saints. This large, unselfish attitude is proof that Christ’s Spirit is teaching them to pray. Pray first for all believers and then for all those immediately around you–your Fellowship, Your Church, and other local churches in your City.
