Paradigm Spirituality

SylviaAs Paul prayed for his disciples in the churches of Ephesus,

Colosse, Philippi, and Thessalonica, he asked God to do what only God could do, to take the written word and make it a living epistle in their transformed lives. These are personalized, paraphrased scriptures which are powerful swords of the Spirit. Pray them for the many people for whom you are concerned that they keep growing up to maturity in Christ. God will delight to answer the desires of His own heart as you pray His own words for them. 

1 Thessalonians 1:2-9
