Father, we join Marie in covering Haendel in prayer right now:
Father, obviously we don’t know what’s going on in Haendel’s life and what hurts or lies from the enemy might be in his heart. And so Father, we put Haendel in your hands and we speak the truth of Colossians 3 over Haendel’s life and heart as well as our own lives and hearts:
12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Holy Spirit, continue your work in us, always chipping away at the walls that we may have put up at one time or another in our lives. Change us. Destroy our flesh. It is already dead! We are new creations in you, Jesus Christ! Hallelujah! We are free from sin. We just need to keep our eyes fixed on you, Jesus. Help us to do that every minute of every day. Help us to walk in your love. Thank you, Jesus. We love you.
