Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. Hebrews 12.1-2
The Fixing Her Eyes site from day one has had the tag line: Gather | Encourage | Sharpen | Love | Worship | Grow
To help us to do this even better, we would love you to join us as we pray daily for Australian Christian women throughout the month of September.
Some prayer suggestions:
fix their eyes on Jesus
persevere in their faith
encouraged in their faith
draw closer to God
opportunities to show His love and share the good news of the gospel
grow in their faith and be more like Jesus
release from captivity and / or violence
wise in decision making
connect with the church in ways they haven't before
revival in this nation, for God's glory
Consider praying our favourite prayer, the Lord's prayer with us each day.
Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.
or be inspired by Ephesians 3.10-21 (NLT)
God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord. Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. So please don’t lose heart because of my trials here. I am suffering for you, so you should feel honoured. When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen. Read Ephesians 3 here
