Prayer from Romans 15:8-13

“8 For I tell you that Christ became a servant to the circumcised to show God’s truthfulness, in order to confirm the promises given to the patriarchs, and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written,’Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles, and sing to your name.’ 10 And again it is said,’Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people.’ 11 And again,’Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and let all the peoples extol him.’12 And again Isaiah says,’The root of Jesse will come, even he who arises to rule the Gentiles; in him will the Gentiles hope.’13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” -Romans 15:8-13, ESV

Here are some prayer prompts from the passage Pastor Clint preached on this morning.

Verse 8:

  • Thank You for Christ’s servant attitude, that He took on flesh to fulfill the Law and promises (Philippians 2:1-11)
  • Thank You for Your truthfulness and trustworthiness, that You cannot lie
  • Help me submit my life to your truth
  • Thank You for keeping Your promises in the Old Testament so that I can trust You to keep all Your promises

Verses 9-11:

  • Thank You for your mercy to me, Your kindness when I deserve punishment
  • Give me opportunities this week to glorify You among my coworkers, neighbors and family
  • Help me discipline my thoughts so that I rejoice and praise You instead of focusing on negative things (Philippians 4:8)
  • Make me a joyful, enthusiastic worshiper daily even when I’m burdened

Verses 12-13:

  • Thank You for giving me hope, joy and peace
  • Fill me with the Holy Spirit’s power so that my hope is abounding
  • Purify my hope so that it’s focused on Your eternal promises and character and not smaller, unsure outcomes
