Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, I pray that You help everyone in the faith begin to show fruits of their faith. Yes, Lord, if their faith is dead now, will you resurrect it today? I pray that their faith will become more than just a belief system but also accompany much fruit. May these people understand what true faith is and that is faith with works. This is faith that is alive. When You begin to work inside of us, the works we do are good indeed. Nothing we can ever do on our own is good but the things You do, through us, I rejoice in the outcomes. You make us better Lord. You give us strength to do things we never thought were possible. Yes, You gives us boldness to share the gospel. You give us a heart to help those in need. These good works that You drive us to do not only help ourselves grow in the faith but many other people are benefitted. Your love is absorbed from us and into the lives we touch. And what is amazing, is this faith becomes alive. We are able to fight against and withstand temptation because of it. Thank You for bringing out my full potential and doing good works inside of me, for the benefit of my soul and others. Have Your way always. Use me to do Your will. I love You. Amen.
