Pray for this week

Jesus Christ said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but by Me.” The Bible says God is the God of truth.

God is truth. What is truth? For something to be true it is real, and authentic, and actual. There is no falseness in God. If God says something will happen, it will happen. If God says it is wrong to lie, it is wrong to lie. God is the very definition of truth.

What did the devil try to say to Eve in the garden of Eden? The devil tried to convince Eve that God was not telling the truth. But God always does tell the truth because He is truth itself.

What are some lies that the world may tell you? The world may tell you that it is OK to lie; that it is best if you steal; that you will be happy forever if you just have enough money; that you should not be faithful to your wife or husband. But these are all lies. It is the way of God that is true. When you follow the truth of God you will find joy, and happiness, and peace. You should tell the truth because it is right and when you tell the truth you are following God; the Bible says “I, the Lord, speak the truth; I declare what is right.”

So, this week, let us pray that

  • We will worship and praise our Lord, the God of truth and mercy
  • God will help us always to tell the truth
  • God will bless financially the people who have made faith promises to help reach people for Christ
  • God will bless and protect all of us

It is good for us to know that God’s ways are truth and they are always good. So resist the lies of the world and ask God to help you always follow His truth and speak the truth in love.

May God bless you,

Your friend.
