Hello all Royal Prayer Guards and all those who join us!!
Thank you for your sincerity toward the Lord and endurance in prayer. It is encouraging to know that there are people who will pray and not give up!
These are the two character qualities of Jesus you are demonstrating.
(1) Sincerity vs. Hypocrisy
“Eagerness to do what is right with transparent motives.” *(IBLP)
(2) Endurance vs. Giving up
“The inward strength to withstand stress to accomplish God's best.” *(IBLP)
This prayer focus is directed to the body of Christ.
I realized that many prayer focuses have been directed to the body of Christ. Two reasons why:
(1) We as believers need to be working properly to advance God’s kingdom.
(2) Since we have access to the Father through Christ, the name of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit we can pray. If we do not pray who will? Watch the "Who will..." video!
Our prayer agenda is allowing God to paint the life of all those in Christ Jesus. In other words, allow Jesus to have His way in the believer's life.
When I was growing up as a sinner, I tried to paint my life doing what seemed to be right.
However, it didn’t work. Then I made the decision to allow Jesus to paint my life from within to be seen outwardly.
Insight: Insisting on our own way prevents God from having His way in our life.

Allow God to paint the life of all those in Christ Jesus.
“Dear heavenly Father, I ask that You cause Your children to allow You to paint who they are in Christ Jesus, I pray this in Jesus name, amen." "Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer in Jesus name, amen."
Reflect, imitate, and reveal the totality of all that God is.
