Welcome To BARAH MINISTRIES
a Christian Church
And He (the Lord Jesus Christ) gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers…
But God (the Father) demonstrates His own (unconditional) love toward us (all mankind), in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
“Believe in the Lord Jesus (Christ), and you will be saved, you and (everyone in) your household (who also believes).”
“…and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
Now to the King (the Lord Jesus Christ, the) eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
Romans Chapter 1 - Prayer is Having a Talk with God
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.
“HAVE A TALK WITH GOD”
Many of us feel we walk alone without a friend Never communicating with the One who lives within Forgetting all about the One who never ever lets you down And you can talk to him anytime…He’s always around
“HAVE A TALK WITH GOD”
When you feel your life’s too hard Just go have a talk with GodWhen your load’s too much to bear Just go talk to God He cares
A private talk between you and God.
“When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites (the Pharisees); for they (the Pharisees) love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.”
“But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret (not seen), and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”
“And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words.”
“So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”
“Pray, then, in this way…”
STRUCTURE OF THE JOHN 17 PRAYER
The Lord Prays for Himself (Verses 1 to 5)
The Lord Prays for His Disciples (Verses 6 to 19)
The Lord Prays for Future Believers (Verses 20 to 26)
Jesus spoke these things (of the Upper Room Discourse); and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour (we set together in eternity past) has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You…”
“…even as You (God the Father) gave Him (Me…the Lord Jesus Christ) authority over all flesh (humans), that to all whom You have given Him, He (the Lord Jesus Christ) may give eternal life (the Zoe life).”
“This is eternal life (the Zoe Life), that they may know You (God the Father), the only true God, and (that they may know the Lord) Jesus Christ whom You (God the Father) have sent.”
“I (the Lord Jesus Christ) glorified You (God the Father) on the earth, having accomplished the work which You (God the Father) have given Me (the Lord Jesus Christ) to do.”
“Now, Father, glorify Me (the Lord Jesus Christ) together with Yourself, with the glory which I (the Lord Jesus Christ) had with You before the world was.”
Being found in appearance as a man, He (the Lord Jesus Christ) humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a Cross.
And Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.”
If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth…
…knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers…
…but (you were redeemed) with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.
For from Him and through and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.
…to the only wise God (the Father), through Jesus Christ, be the glory forever. Amen.
“I (the Lord Jesus Christ) have manifested (made visible) Your name (God the Father) 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 (the Lord Jesus Christ) came forth from You, and they believed that You sent Me.”
“I (the Lord Jesus Christ) ask (You Father in prayer) on their behalf; I do not ask on behalf of the world, but (I ask on behalf) of those whom You have given Me; for they are Yours…”
“…and all things that are Mine are Yours, and (all things that are) 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 (one).”
“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 (Judas Iscariot), so that the Scripture would be fulfilled (as We predicted).”
“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 (in prayer) on behalf of these (apostles) 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(dwelling) them and You in(dwelling) 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 (unconditional) love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I (the Lord Jesus Christ) in(dwelling them) 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!
