Prayer Summary for January 22

Scripture Focus…

(1) “If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. (2) If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, ‘Jump,’ and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. (3-7) If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.”

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

(8–10) “Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled. (11) When I was an infant at my mother’s breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good. (12) We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! (13) But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.”
(1 Cor. 13 The Message)


The following commentary to 1 Corinthians 13:1 is taken from The Revival Study Bible:

1 Corinthians 13:1 Sounding Brass or Clanging Cymbal

Billy Graham said: I can have the gift of an evangelist. I can get up and preach and not be filled with the Spirit. I shall preach without power and my preaching will be as sounding brass and tinkling cymbal…I have asked God, if there were ever a day when I should stand in the pulpit without knowing the fullness and anointing of the Spirit of God and should not preach with compassion and fire, I want God to take me home to heaven. I do not want to live. I do not ever want to stand in the pulpit and preach without the power of the Holy Spirit. It is a dangerous thing.

Hearing things we have never heard before
Things being manifested right before our eyes
We will not lean on our own understanding

Lifting up the missionaries—let there be such a strong presence of Your glory upon them
Thank You for the three groups: the Church, the Jews, and the Nations

Praying over codes, things that need to be lined up!

Today, we receive an increase of Your Spirit to overflow with Your love
