PRAYER: LORD GOD, grace me to be worthy of the calling I have received, fulfilling purpose and influencing lives positively, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
WHY PRAY THIS?: When Jesus saved us, HE didn’t just save us, but to reconcile with GOD and to live for HIM, to do HIS works and get graced in HIS name to influence others for good, to rule with HIM, and many more embedded tasks as well as benefits. Much of the teaching in the first half of Ephesians is about our calling with purpose(s), Yes! Even as you are named after Christ being Christ-Like or Christian, you are elected and predestined before time, redeemed, forgiven, to in turn look out for others. In Ephesians 4:1-6, Apostle Paul started by encouraging us that “As a prisoner for the LORD, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.” Peace be unto You!
