31 Days of Prayer: Two

Growth in Grace

Children:
“I pray that my children may grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 3:18)

Others or Myself:
“I pray that I and __________ would grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”


But grow in grace (undeserved favor, spiritual strength) and “recognition and knowledge and understanding of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (the Messiah). To Him [be] glory (honor, majesty, and splendor) both now and to the day of eternity. Amen (so be it)! 2 Peter 3:18 AMP

“To Grow in Grace.” What exactly are we praying?

Grow (auxano) to increase in inward Christian growth

Grace (charis) 1) good will, loving-kindness, favour 2) the merciful kindness by which God, exerting his holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Christian faith, knowledge and affection. Kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues.

Lord may we grow in grace. May we increase in inward Christian growth and may your favor rest upon us. Father, exert your Holy influence upon our souls. Turn us to Christ. Strengthen us, increase our knowledge of Jesus. Increase our affection for you and for one another. Kindle a desire within us to practice Christian virtues and to, ever increasingly, understand our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Mmm. I love that. Have an amazing, Spirit-filled day.
