Prayer Challenge


I want to ask you to say this prayer out loud, if possible.

“I belong to God. I am a holy vessel, because I have the Holy Spirit of the Living God. The Lord of Heaven and earth has said over me; “I declare you holy!”. I commit to start believing what He says. I AM HOLY! Remind me daily, Spirit of the Living God, to treat myself as holy, open my eyes to every scheme of The Enemy to treat me as if I'm not. You God, are Holy. Your word is truth. This day Father, I chose to believe you! I ask this in the mighty name of your son Jesus Christ, who died on a cross for me so that I could be a coheir to the kingdom of God. Amen”

Your Grief will Turn into Joy - John 16:20

Ours isn't a life focused on the world, ours should be a life focused on Jesus Christ. 

Knowing Jesus and being comforted by the Holy Spirit, should turn our grief into joy. Grief is a natural feeling, but it shouldn't take away the joy that believers have in Christ. 
  • The sorrows of the disciples would soon be turned into joy; as those of a mother, at the sight of her infant. 
  • The Holy Spirit would be their Comforter, and neither men nor devils, neither sufferings in life nor in death, would ever deprive them of their joy. 
  • Believers have joy or sorrow, according to their sight of Christ, and the tokens of his presence.
The believer is an heir to joy which no one can take away.     
adapted from Matthew Henry's Bible Commentary
