Isa. 36:5 I say, sayest thou, (but they are but vain words) “I have counsel and strength for war”: now on whom dost thou trust, that thou rebellest against me?

rags;

† Isa. 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy

 

Almighty God and King:

 

Faithful Redeemer and Lord:

Loving and Glorious Lord:

This is an important question for anyone. Now on whom dost thou trust? Oh,

These were your dying words, of seven spoken from the cross. The first cry was Father, forgive them. The second was stated to the thief who heard and claimed your forgiveness, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise. Third, further on, you spotted your mother, and spoke to provide a home for Mary, because you were being called away. The fourth and central word of the seven is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? It is as though it needed three cries before it and three sayings after it as its bodyguard, because this was the central crux of the cross. John preserves the fifth word, I thirst; the shortest, but sharpest for physical pain. Then you said, It is finished, because by then no thread was left dangling in the fabric of my redemption. And since it was finished to perfection, your seventh and completing word was, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit. Seven cries. Seven duties. 1. Help me forgive my enemies like you did. Make me always ready to pardon them in Christian love, especially those who are closest to me, and hurt me quickest, deepest and the most. Make me like the cedar tree that perfumes the axe that chops it! 2. Let me confess my sin even as did the dying thief. 3. Let me never fall short of love to my own family and friends. 4. Teach me to cling to you and trust in you even when I seem forsaken by you. 5. Let me set a high value on the fulfillment of your word. 6. Teach me complete obedience. Help me work, obey, suffer and serve according to your will. 7. Teach me complete yieldedness of my life to your plans. I stand still and make full surrender even now. Amen.

There are those in other religions who torture themselves, thinking that through discipline and self-mortification they can win your satisfaction. In all parts of the planet there are those who think the misery of their body must be an atonement for their own sin. But, It is finished! All the pain of punishment God can ask, Christ suffered for me!

John 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Lord, I dare not pin my filthy rags to the fine linen of Christ’s righteousness! But instead, I trust through my faith in the cross, that his righteousness is applied to me. My account now contains his obedience in my place. My sin was put on him and taken away, never to be remembered again.

that

and

would listen to my answer and make it theirs!

trust you, Father, believing you have chosen me to glorify you, even

from the foundation of the world. I trust you to provide for me in providence, teach me in scripture, guide me by your Spirit, correct me by your counsel, and bring me home to your house, where many mansions are!

I

 

I

trust you, Son of God, believing you have taken away my sins by your

own sacrifice, clothed me in your perfect righteousness, and put me in your body. Be my Intercessor. Present my prayers and desires to the Father on his throne. Be my Advocate against the Accuser. Justify me by your own blood! I trust you for who you are, for your finished work, and for what you promise to do with me.

 

I

trust you, Holy Spirit, because you have not only saved me eternally, but

 

I

cannot (and no one can) improve on what Christ finished. The cross

started saving me right now from ingrained sin. I trust you to drive it all out! I

made the work of salvation complete. From henceforth, you see my sins to remove them, but not to lay them to my charge. Even my righteousnesses are like filthy rags to you, but all the filthy rags are mine no longer. I have gained Christ’s righteousness through renouncing my righteousness, and come to trust in his blood alone, shed on the cross. So make me clean within! There is a bath of water whose faucet flows from the wounded side of Jesus. My guiltiness is washed away as well as my guilt, and for this I praise you in prayer. Eternal Spirit, come down and fill my soul, though I hate myself today. In Christ I am a new creature because of his cross. I claim that and all it means, because it glorifies Christ for me to do so! Amen.

trust you to curb my temper, subdue my will, enlighten my understanding, check my emotions, comfort my depression, help my weaknesses, and illuminate my darkness. I trust you to dwell in me as surely as I have life animating me right now. Reign as my King. Sanctify me completely in response to my complete consecration. Make me yours: spirit, soul, and body, now and forever! Help me witness to someone who will trust the One whose power will never be exhausted, love will never wane, kindness will never change, faithfulness will never fail, wisdom will never be confused, and goodness can never be diminished. Happy is that person whose trust is in you completely! Amen.

 

FRIDAY— CORPORATE PRAYER MINISTRY Chronological Bible Reading: Ezra 7-10; John 19:1-21 Friday, June 10

 

SATURDAY—IN THE PSALMS Chronological Bible Reading: Nehemiah 1-3; John 19:22-42 Saturday, June 11

 

A DAILY PATTERN FOR PRAYER & BIBLE READING Chronological Bible Reading: Ezra 4-6; John 18 Thursday, June 9

Lam. 3:41 Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.

Psa. 101:2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

Father God:

Luke 6:47-48 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: he is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

MY HOPE is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly trust in Jesus’ name. When darkness seems to hide His face, I rest on His unchanging grace. In every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil.

The act of prayer teaches us humility—a good lesson for proud people! Rev. 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, If you gave us answers without our asking, we would never recognize how desperately dependent we are on you. True prayer is an inventory of how much we need you, a catalog of crises, a revelation of our true poverty, and Matt. 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Lord, this is our application for a “stimulus grant” of divine wealth, and also our confession of human emptiness. The healthiest state we can be in as a church is to be always empty of self, and constantly depending on your Spirit. Lord, make it so! Make it so! Make it so! Make us mighty through God to do great exploits in fulfilling your Eternal Purpose. We will constantly use prayer, because while it adores you as creator, it also lays us as creatures in the dust where we belong. Grant us blessing through the daily exercise of prayer. Increase our faith as we connect to you in spirit. Make us mount up with wings as eagles as we wait upon you (Isa. 40:31). James 5:16 The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Our prayer is the uplifted hands of Moses on the hill. It routs the Amalekites even more than the valiant sword of Joshua in the valley. Teach us to pray, because that is what clothes our weakness with divine strength, turns our human folly into heavenly wisdom, and gives your anxious and depressed people the peace and joy of God. Thank you Lord, for this mercy seat, a precious proof of your faithful lovingkindness. Help us use it rightly today. Amen.

 

Dear Lord and Righteous Father:

The best praise is purity, and the best music is holiness. If I really want to worship you I will walk in your word and in the Spirit today. I need revival! This was David’s deliberate choice. Make it mine. Influenced by the grace of God, let me choose wisdom as the principal thing, and count the fear of the Lord as my best protection. Others can run after gain and fame. Whatever happens to me today this is my desire: I want to behave myself wisely. But to behave wisely, I have to be holy. Give me the manliness or womanhood (let alone godliness) to do the right

His oath, His covenant, His blood, support me in the whelming flood. When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay. When He shall come with trumpet sound, Oh may I then in Him be found. Dressed in His righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne.

On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand; All other ground is sinking sand.

thing in every thing today. It will be the turning point in my career, my home, my relationships, my difficulties. It will save me from a thousand future shame-filled sorrows and regrets for every present pain it does not immediately eliminate.

 

I

do not need to be a philosopher to know right from wrong. The way to

act in every instance is, Eccl. 12:13 Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For most people, their conscience is elastic. But the law of the Lord is consistent and standard. I will always lose less by doing right than I ever would by doing wrong. I will behave—for I am determined—but often I like the power. I want to behave wisely, but you know my dependence is on your Holy Spirit for personal holiness. Come unto me for I need more grace! I need more help than I find in myself. Mercy, Lord! I call on you to be my helper for holiness. Do it for Jesus’ sake and honor. Amen.

TONIGHT 5:30P.M.
1 Cor 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God
hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
Baptists tend to ridicule liturgical churches that use "prepared prayers" because
they lack spontaneity. But for many Baptists, their prayers are so predictable they are
no more spontaneous than written-out prayers. The result is we end up praying the
same things over and over.
GIVE GOD THE FIRST DIME OF EVERY DOLLAR—no questions
asked. Ten percent is a miniscule amount in our affluent society, but it must come
off the top in order to show that God is our priority. We want the blessing of the
firstfruits (first devotion, first dime and first day) to flow out to the rest of our
resources.
• The Seven Sevens We take eight Sunday night services June 5-July 31 to look
at The “Seven Sevens.” This survey of essential Bible truths weave a safety net
of sound doctrine from scripture itself to insulate you against cults and
unsound teaching. Register at lfbi.org to take this as a Bible Institute class,
and prepare now for the Lord to use you!
This daily Prayer Diary will prompt you on a wide range of prayer requests you
might not normally think of, while forcing you to articulate a deeper devotion to
God. We have included a daily Bible reading schedule. This plan will take you
through the Bible chronologically in a year.

TEAM—WORD
Do not read ahead and do not try to catch up. Use each day as it comes. Then
you can know that on any given day, dozens of other people are lifting their hearts in
the same mind to God. Pray what is written, but use what is prayed as a springboard
for your own relationship with God. You learn to pray by praying.

Secret prayer is the secret of prayer, the soul of prayer, the seal of prayer, the
strength of prayer. If you do not pray alone you do not pray at all. Our Lord Jesus
Christ would go nowhere till He had prayed. He would attempt nothing till He had
prayed.
QUALITY CHRISTIANITY INVOLVES THREE THINGS

MINISTRY, SERVICE & FELLOWSHIP

“Oh,” says one, “I live in the spirit of prayer, and therefore I do not need times
and seasons for prayer.” And do you think that Christ did not live in the spirit of
prayer? Yet He had to have his special time and place to pray. Do not fall under the
injurious notion that because your spirit cries to God in prayer all day long, therefore
there must not be some season for more immediately coming into God’s presence. If
you imagine this, I am afraid that it will prove a snare to your feet. The Lord Jesus
Christ, who knew better than you do that the main thing is the spirit of prayer rather
than the act of prayer, yet Himself retired into desert places to maintain the act and
exercise of prayer. Be spiritual. Be baptized into the spirit of prayer. But do not be
deceived by the enemy, who can steal a spirit away while we dream that we only
spiritualize it. We had better preserve the very bones of prayer—the posture, the
time, place—rather than let it all ooze away into an impalpable mental condition.
God keep us prayerful. He will do so if He makes us like His dear Son.
