Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the Great Shepherd of the sheep though the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen (Hebrews 13:20-21)
If you want to know how to pray for your family, for those you love, and for fellow disciples of Jesus Christ, here it is.
As Paul often did, in one glorious closing sentence, He prays this benediction over all who would read His words … which now includes YOU.
THE AGENT WE NEED
Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the Great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal Jesus our Lord (vs. 20)
Someone greater than ourselves must be the agent of our equipping. We cannot accomplish this alone. We must aggressively cooperate with Him, but we need the agency of the Father. And look at the description of this One.
THE EQUIPPING WE NEED
What should we pray the Lord will do in us and others for whom we pray? What is the great prayer we can pray that accomplishes much?
What a benediction! What a prayer to pray for ourselves, our families, and all those we love! Take a moment right now and pray this prayer over your family. Memorize this prayer and use it often, realizing that prayer works and no prayers are more powerful or effective than that found in Scripture.
