Praying With Praxis - 11.09.2021

Thank you for joining us in prayer. This week you can...

...ask our Father to open doors for the kingdom to expand through non-profit, business, and church leaders in the Greater Cincinnati Region and in your community. And pray for The Kingdom Initiative who are on mission in among those leaders.

...ask God to heal and bring peace to the leaders of our community in Oakley as they lead through a difficult physical and emotional time. Ask God for healing in your life and community.

...ask God to strengthen and support the disciple-making work of Cincy Navigators as arrange themselves to disciple the city. Ask God to raise up disciple-makers in your town or city.

This week in our learning community we dialogued on Jesus healing the blind men in Matthew 20.

Jesus was a master at showing and telling the good news. Here he is showing (demonstrating) the good news by being good news. And he did it in full collaboration with the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is available to us just as He was to Jesus. We are invited to collaborate with him to show the good news in simple, everyday days and sometimes in extraordinary, supernatural ways.

Here are quotes and scriptures for continued reflection.

The early church was a bunch of illiterate peasants filled with the power of God, they did not have theology degrees or commentaries to consult. They did not know their enneagram numbers or their Myers Briggs personality types. They had no clear strategies for church growth and didn’t even own a completed copy of the New Testament. But they were desperate for the power of God. - Tyler Staton, Bridgetown Church Portland

Sometimes Jesus heals slowly by His presence and sometimes Jesus heals instantly by His power. - Tyler Staton, Bridgetown Church Portland

You know what has happened throughout the province of Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached—38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.

Acts 10

10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. 12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

John 14

11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

Luke 11

4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. 5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

Acts 1

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

Galatians 5

15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit.Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 5

3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Romans 5

14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”

Romans 8
