For there is one God and one mediator
between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
who gave himself as a ransom for all men‚Äî
the testimony given in its proper time.
And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle‚Äî
I am telling the truth, I am not lying‚Äî
and a teacher of the true faith to the Gentiles.
I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer
without anger or disputing.
• Passionate prayer is often accompanied by physical expressions.
• God wants you to obey him completely and immediately.
• Your goal should be to have a right relationship with God and others.
Gracious Father, I lift up my voice and my hands in praise and prayer.
I yield my dreams and plans to you.
I ask that you will direct my decisions and conversation.
Help me to continue to develop healthy and lasting relationships.
In Jesus Name, Amen!
