Fruit of Righteousness

Day 6

"And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ--to the glory and praise of God." Philippians 1:9-11

Jennifer's prayer:  Lord, grant to my descendants an abundance of true knowledge and deep insight, and enable them to discern the best in every situation.  Let their lives be the branches that display your fruit--the righteousness of Christ.  Jennifer Kennedy Dean

My prayer: Lord, my mind can hardly take in all that these two verses express--let your Holy Spirit even now teach me what these verses really mean and how they can be appropriated in my descendants' lives.

I pray that they will give full access to Your love to grow inside them until they are filled with wisdom beyond their chronological and spiritual birth years. I pray that this will lead to discernment in every situation they are placed in throughout their earthly lives thereby leading them to develop Godly habits and practices--actions that will lead others to know this great fruit of the seed of Jesse--Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. 

Father, your Word says that the fruit of righteousness is Peace--we know true peace comes only from you and Jesus is that Peace. I pray that the Peace of Jesus would envelop the world at this point in time. I pray for a great revival throughout the earth--for Your name to be lifted high. I especially pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all of Israel. Blessed be Your Name.

How I love the Philippians verses. That is my prayer; to love deeper and deeper, to be filled with the fruit of righteousness. The reason I can have peace is a Person; Jesus Christ. I pray that my descendants would know Him and grow in Him too.

As I read a few of your quotes on your sidebar, I realized that we have many 'mentors' in common. I think I've read every one of Catherine Marshall's books. And Corrie ten Boom has been such an inspiration to me too.

You have a lovely Christmas tree. Thank you for sharing a glimpse into your home.

Blessings and love,

Dear Lord, I ask that You would grant to my descendents the gift of true discernment. I ask that they would have divine revelation of Who You are and who they are in You. Lord, Your peace that passes all our understanding is the fruit I desire for those I love, and for myself. Amen.

I love your tree and getting to come inside your home. I would love to be able to actually visit you and sit and talk about our Jesus.

Love you,
