Praying Without the Holy Spirit

February 21, 2014

“If you could pray the best prayer in the world without the Holy Spirit, God would have nothing to do with it.”

Salvation

February 13, 2014

To attempt to pay for salvation with church membership, prayers, or good deeds is an insult to Christ, who paid the full price–and is a rejection of the gift of God’s grace.

Revival

We Pray

February 13, 2014

PRAY FOR US:

1 Thessalonians 5:25 Brethren, pray for us.

1ra Tesalonicenses 5:25 Hermanos, orad por nosotros.

WE PRAY: That ye may be accounted worthy to escape having hearts being overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life:

Luke 21:34-36 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Lucas 21:34-36 Y mirad por vosotros mismos, que vuestros corazones no sean cargados de glotonería y embriaguez y de los afanes de esta vida, y venga de repente sobre vosotros aquel día.
Porque como un lazo vendrá sobre todos los que habitan sobre la faz de toda la tierra. Velad, pues, orando en todo tiempo, que seáis tenidos por dignos de escapar de todas estas cosas que han de venir, y de estar en pie delante del Hijo del Hombre.

WE PRAY: That ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding:

Colossians 1:9-11 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

Colosenses 1: 9-11 Por lo cual también nosotros, desde el día que [lo] oímos, no cesamos de orar por vosotros, y de pedir que seáis llenos del conocimiento de su voluntad en toda sabiduría y entendimiento espiritual; para que andéis como es digno del Señor, agradándole en todo, llevando fruto en toda buena obra y creciendo en el conocimiento de Dios; Fortalecidos con todo poder, conforme a la potencia de su gloria, para toda paciencia y longanimidad con gozo;

WE PRAY: That He will send forth labourers:

Matthew 9:37-38 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Mateo 9: 37-38 Entonces dijo a sus discípulos: A la verdad la mies [es] mucha, mas los obreros pocos. Rogad, pues, al Señor de la mies, que envíe obreros a su mies.

WE PRAY: For those who despitefully use us, and persecute us:

Matthew 5:44-45 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Mateo 5:44-45
Pero yo os digo: Amad a vuestros enemigos, bendecid a los que os maldicen, haced bien a los que os aborrecen, y orad por los que os ultrajan y os persiguen;
para que seáis hijos de vuestro Padre que está en el cielo; porque Él hace que su sol salga sobre malos y buenos; y envía lluvia sobre justos e injustos.

WE PRAY: Count you worthy, fulfil His goodness, with power that Christ may be glorified:

2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2da Tesalonicences 1:11-12 Por lo cual asimismo oramos siempre por vosotros, que nuestro Dios os tenga por dignos de [este] llamamiento, y cumpla todo buen deseo de su bondad, y la obra de fe con poder, para que el nombre de nuestro Señor Jesucristo sea glorificado en vosotros, y vosotros en Él, por la gracia de nuestro Dios y del Señor Jesucristo.

WE PRAY: Your love may abound in knowledge and all judgement:

Philippians 1:9-11 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
