THE PRAYER OF APPROPRIATION
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power for all patience and long-suffering with joy, giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. Colossians 1:3-12
We are partakers of the divine inheritance, all the benefits given to those who have made Jesus Lord! Jesus paid the price for our eternal souls when He suffered and died for us on the cross, but most do not know that He bled in seven specific places to give us complete salvation and deliverance from sin, iniquities, generational curses, and eternal death.
It all began in a garden when Adam first sinned by eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and God expelled Him from His presence to toil in the earth and the generational curse of sin began its fateful journey down the bloodlines of all mankind, creating the need to be saved from its deadly consequences, in which the Son of God was sacrificed!
When Jesus went into the garden of Gethsemane to pray He was under so much stress that His sweat turned to blood, thereby giving us access to the throne of the Most High and the very presence of God. As Adam was driven out of God's presence so we as believers are invited back into His gracious inheritance of eternal peace, prosperity, and blessing.
And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. Luke 22:42-44
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
PRAYER OF APPROPRIATION: Heavenly Father I thank you for giving Your Son Jesus for me as a sacrifice and I appropriate the blood He shed for me allowing me back into Your presence! In Jesus Name, Amen
