2011 Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 22!

Three more to go!
Three more to go!
Three more to go!

(Hear that all cheerleader like)

Ladies, the finish line is in sight! Let’s run the rest of this race marked out for us. What a privilege this has been, you guys.

I think I told you guys recently that I’d gotten a new Bible. I absolutely love it. I always choose one Book of the Bible to read through carefully when I get a new one and this time I chose the Book of Acts. I’ve been so incredibly inspired by it. The verse I’m memorizing this time is for the sake of prayer. (Do you guys often use your memory verses in prayer, turning them into intercession? It really stirs up my faith and my strength.) I’m praying that what happened when Peter was in the midle of bringing the Scriptures to attentive listeners will happen in our environments, too. I’m praying this for my pastor and those who hear the Scriptures through him. I’m praying it for myself and for those I’m privileged to serve. I now pray it for you and those you teach and encourage with the Word of God.

Beth, Houston. “While Peter was still saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the Word.” Acts 10:44 ESV

Lord, let it be! Drench Your listeners with Your Spirit! While we are right in the middle of sharing the Scriptures, fall on every single person who hears. I want this so much. I want a fresh anointing, don’t you? I think our God is willing to give it. Let’s ask Him boldly! All we have to do is make absolutely certain that He gets every ounce of credit. Oh, what He’d be willing to do if we jealously guarded His glory and humbled ourselves as slaves of God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ok, Girls. How about yours?

I love you so much.

    Philippians 1:19-30 (ESV)

    19 for I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance,
    20 as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death.
    21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
    22 If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell.
    23 I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.
    24 But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account.
    25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith,
    26 so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again.
    27Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel,
    28 and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is a clear sign to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God.
    29 For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake,
    30 engaged in the same conflict that you saw I had and now hear that I still have.
