Daily Prayer for December 27th, 2019      

Good morning, God—thank You! 🙂

I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that You sent Jesus to die on the cross for my sins. The message You gave Him, He gave me, and I took it, and I am convinced that He came from You. I believe that You sent Him. Now You/Jesus watches over me, not the God-rejecting world, but Your children, who believe You. You, Father, Son & Holy Spirit, shine through me/humankind, although Jesus has gone to be with You, and is no longer visible in the world; I will continue to tell the good news and slather the world with His love. Guard me as I pursue this life. Bring us all to be, one heart and one mind, in Jesus. He will come again! Amen.

John 17:7-12 The Message (MSG)

6-12 I spelled out your character in detail
To the men and women, you gave me.
They were yours in the first place;
Then you gave them to me,
And they have now done what you said.
They know now, beyond the shadow of a doubt,
That everything you gave me is firsthand from you,
For the message you gave me, I gave them;
And they took it and were convinced
That I came from you.
They believed that you sent me.
I pray for them.
I’m not praying for the God-rejecting world
But for those you gave me,
For they are yours by right.
Everything mine is yours, and yours mine,
And my life is on display in them.
For I’m no longer going to be visible in the world;
They’ll continue in the world
While I return to you.
Holy Father, guard them as they pursue this life
That you conferred as a gift through me,
So they can be one heart and mind
As we are one heart and mind.
As long as I was with them, I guarded them
In the pursuit of the life you gave through me;
I even posted a night watch.
And not one of them got away,
Except for the rebel bent on destruction
(the exception that proved the rule of Scripture).
