Part 2: How Can We Pray for the Victorian Elections?
Let’s pray in agreement with God’s will for Victoria.
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. Matthew 5:9-13
How do we pray in agreement with God’s will?
Sometimes agreement is blocked by hearts hardened by enmity.
Enmity comes from the same Latin root as enemy and means the state of being an enemy.
There is another way!
Will you pray, Jesus, please turn the enmity in my heart into forgiveness…?
If you are feeling, speaking or praying with enmity, surrender to the conviction of the Holy Spirit and repent (of entitlement, disappointment, judgement, fear, jealousy or whatever underlies this) and laydown your enmity (any sin that separates us) under the blood of Jesus, so you can release forgiveness to your debtor and receive forgiveness and healing, and reconciliation with God.
“Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.” Romans 5:9-11
“Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” James 5:16
You can know God’s will, and say what your Father is saying, if you come to Jesus and let His Spirit pray through you.
Hebrews 7:25 “”He always lives to make intercession for them.”
Isaiah 59 perfectly describes enmity and the journey back to covenant with God as His people.
Isaiah 59:21 NLT “And this is my covenant with them,” says the Lord. “My Spirit will not leave them, and neither will these words I have given you. They will be on your lips and on the lips of your children and your children’s children forever. I, the Lord, have spoken!”
