Know Jesus and do the will of the Father… only then ask in his name!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for steam. Thank you for mist. Thank you for wispy clouds. Thank you for showing us how at times there can be something covering our field of vision just a bit and perhaps we might not even notice it.  A slight mist or slight fog can alter how the world looks, make it a bit more ominous. Help us to not let the powers of darkness cloud our vision of your world, of your creation, of you … as the scripture for today’s prayer abruptly warns us:

[Jesus said:] Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:21-23)

Lord, it’s me again – as usual. Yep, I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. I am praying for you today Lindsey. I am praying a big prayer for you today. I pray that you will truly know Jesus. I pray that you both can sit and talk today, have a real heart to heart talk. I pray that you will clearly see what God’s will for you and your life is. And I pray that God grant you all the courage you may need to walk in his will. I ask that God remove any fear or lingering doubts that cloud your mind. And I ask that he will always give you the words wherever you go! And we will glorify him. The glory all is his. Glory to God! I ask this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings, Savior and Lord, the Anointed One who calms my storms. Amen

HCSB:
 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of My Father in heaven. On that day many will say to Me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in Your name, drive out demons in Your name, and do many miracles in Your name? Then I will announce to them, ‘I never knew you! Depart from Me, you lawbreakers!

NASB:
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew youdepart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
