“Know therefore today, and take it to your heart, that the Lord, He is God in heaven above and on the earth below; there is no other (God).”
Beloved (divinely loved ones), let us love one another (unconditionally), for (unconditional) love is from (the SOURCE…) God; and everyone who loves (unconditionally) is born of God and knows God.//The one who does not love (unconditionally) does not know God, for God is (in His very Person, unconditional) love.
For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD (so well), THAT HE WILL (be qualified to) INSTRUCT HIM? But we (believers in Christ) have the mind of Christ.)
“Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.”


Romans Chapter 1 - The Best Prayer Ever Prayed 

Romans, Chapter 1, 
Verses 8 to 15
Paul’s Prayer for the Purpose of his Ministry 
First, I, Paul, thank God the Father in prayer through Jesus Christ’s name for all you believers in Rome, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world…throughout the entire Roman Empire.
For God the Father is my witness, whom I, Paul, serve in my human spirit by the preaching of the gospel of God the Father’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, as to how unceasingly I make mention of you believers in Rome in intercessory prayer…
…and I always, in my prayers, keep on making requests, even praying in petition for myself as well, if perhaps now at last by the will of God the Father I may succeed in coming to visit you.
For I, Paul, long to see you believers in Rome so that I may impart some spiritual gift to you, that you may be established…
…that is, that I, Paul may be encouraged together with you while among you, as each of us is encouraged by the other’s faith, both your faith encouraging me and my faith encouraging you.
I do not want you to be unaware, believers in Rome, that often I have planned to come to you and have been prevented so far from coming to you…even though I wanted to come…so that I may obtain some fruit among you also, even as I have obtained fruit among the rest of the Gentiles.
I, Paul, as a bond-servant am under obligation both to people who speak Greek and to the barbarians…the people who don’t speak Greek…I am under obligation both to the wise, whom we know are believers in Christ, and to the foolish, whom we know are unbelievers.
So, for my part, I am eager to preach the gospel as a minster to you believers also who are in Rome.
Romans, Chapter 1, Verses 8 to 15
What is faith?
“through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles for His name’s sake…”
Romans, Chapter 1, Verses 8 to 15
What is faith?
“your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world”
“Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world (planet earth…Satan) will be cast out (Satan will be dethroned in the future…Satan will be ‘cast into the outer darkness’ of the Lake of Fire).
And the devil who deceived (the whole world) them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also (the counterfeit Trinity…Satan and the beast and the false prophet); and they (Satan and the beast and the false prophet) will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
For our citizenship (as believers in Christ) is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ…
Therefore, we (believers in Christ) are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal (to unbelievers) through us (because He is); we beg you (unbelievers) on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
“He who believes in Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten (uniquely born) Son of God (the Lord Jesus Christ).”
Immediately the boy’s father cried out (to the Lord Jesus Christ) and said, “I do believe; help my unbelief.”
“He who believes in the Son (the Lord Jesus Christ) has eternal life (the Zoe life); but he who does not obey the (command to believe in the) Son will not see (the Zoe) life, but the wrath of God (the Lake of Fire) abides on him.”
Romans, Chapter 1, Verses 8 to 15
What is faith?
…that is, that I may be encouraged together with you while among you, each of us (encouraged) by the other’s faith, both yours and mine.
Romans, Chapter 1, 
Verses 8 to 15
What is prayer?
The Lord also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble;//and those who know Your name (believers in Christ) will put their trust (faith) in You, For You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.
Why do You stand afar off, O Lord? Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble?
O Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble (from their prayers); You will strengthen their heart, You will incline Your ear//to vindicate the orphan and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth will no longer cause terror.
God is our refuge and (our) strength, a very present help in trouble.
Jesus spoke these things; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You…”
“…even as You gave Him authority over all flesh, that to all whom You have given Him, He may give eternal life.
“This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and (that they may know) Jesus Christ whom You have sent.”
“I (the Lord Jesus Christ) glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do.”
“Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.”
“I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.”
“Now they have come to know that everything You have given Me is from You…”
“…for the words which You gave Me I have given to them; and they received them and truly understood that I came forth from You, and they believed that You sent Me.”
“I ask on their behalf; I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom You have given Me; for they are Yours…”
“…and all things that are Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I have been glorified in them.”
“I am no longer in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are.”
“While I was with them, I was keeping them in Your name which You have given Me; and I guarded them and not one of them perished but the son of perdition, so that the Scripture would be fulfilled.”
“But now I come to You; and these things I speak in the world so that they may have My joy made full in themselves.”
“I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.”
“I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one.”
“They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.”
“Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.”
“As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.”
“For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.”
“I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word…”
“…that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.”
“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one…”
“I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.…”
“Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.”
“O righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me…”
“…and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”
For I am confident of this very thing, that He (God the Father) who began a (divine) good work in (the creation of) you will (keep on) perfect(ing) it until the day of Christ Jesus.
Do not fret because of evildoers, Be not envious toward wrongdoers.//For they will wither quickly like the grass And fade like the green herb 
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard (garrison) your hearts and your minds (for those of you) in (union with) Christ Jesus.
Thanks for watching!
Thanks for listening!
