God’s Stimulus Plan

September 7, 2009

The effective heartfelt prayer of a righteous man will accomplish a lot (James 5:16b). As we approach the fall season, I want to give you some focus prayer points for these next 60-90 days.

1. Pray for the removal of obstacles.
Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also
lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us
run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus.
Hebrews 12:1-2a

2. Pray for the increase of love.
And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge
and all discernment, so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in
order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; having been filled with
the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and
praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11

3. Pray for personal growth.
As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and
carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in
deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects
into Him who is the head, even Christ. Ephesians 4:14-15

4. Pray for the 100% will of God.
For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for
you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual
wisdom and understanding. Colossians 1:9

5. Pray with the end in mind.
Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood,
hay, straw, each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it because
it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s
work. 1 Corinthians 3:12-13

Press On!
