Desiring the Lord’s Will :: By Mark A. Becker

Prayer Request for New Project

There is one thing we are allowed to covet, and that is prayer! We can also covet God’s love, God’s leading, and God’s will. And that’s exactly what I desire to do; I desire the Lord’s will in everything.

I’m starting a new project – a project that I only want to succeed if it is firmly within God’s will. Therefore, I’m asking my brothers and sisters in Christ if you might offer a quick prayer to the Lord on my behalf. That the Lord will open the doors that need to be opened, or close the doors that need to be closed. That His will, and only His will, be accomplished.

It’s not important what the project is – God knows what it is – it’s just very important to me that I’m smack-dab in the middle of His desire for my life and my service to Him. There’s nowhere else I want to be.

I thank you so much for your prayers for me, my health, my family, and the ministry God has given to me. And to show my appreciation, I’d like to offer my prayer for you.

Dear Heavenly Father, in Messiah Yeshua’s Holy Name –

Thank You for Who You Are, what You have done, what You are doing, and what You will do. You’re an amazing God, full of wisdom, power, grace, and truth, and I couldn’t love you more. Thank You so much for Your Son and His sacrifice for me, my family, and all of those who put their faith and trust in Him for their salvation. This sacrifice of Your faithful Son wasn’t only for us, but for the entire world and for those who have yet to put their faith and trust in our Lord and Savior – I pray also for them. That they would recognize that they are sinners in need of a Savior. May You use our faithful hearts as vessels to reach them for Your Son and His Kingdom.

Lord, I lift up my brothers and sisters all over the world. That they draw closer to you on a daily basis; that they stay in your amazing Word; that they learn of Your power, grace, and love on an ever-deeper level through their study of Your Word; that they depend on Your Son each and every day of their earthly lives; that they and are filled with Your Holy Spirit continually as they face each day dependent on You and You alone.

I ask that you bless and protect them, their loved ones, and their friends in Christ with good health and a heart to serve You, and that they spread Your glorious gospel to a lost and dying world. May Your peace that surpasses all understanding be with them in the good times and, especially prevalent, in their trials and tribulations; that Your everlasting love envelope them at all times, abounding with Your amazing grace.

May their lives be a reflection of Your dear Son, and may they all be in Your perfect will, giving themselves over wholly to Your plans for their lives.

I pray all of this in Your amazing and glorious Son, Jesus Christ’s Holy Name – Amen!


I would also like to start writing some devotionals in the future, and I could really use your help.

If you have a passage – or passages – of Scripture that is your favorite, or something you feel would make a good devotional topic, please email me with your suggestions. Please make sure they are between one and three verses long, as that length seems to be best for short devotional studies.

I’ve never done devotionals before, but it sounds very exciting, so I thought I’d give it a try!

Final Plea and Thanks

As always, I encourage all of my brothers and sisters in Christ to continue in Answering the Call of The Great Commission for our Lord and Savior! Please, keep reaching the lost for Jesus Christ, as I don’t think we have much time left.

Thanks again for your prayers, devotional suggestions, and just being great saints of God committed to sharing the gospel and honoring our Mighty King!

Love, grace, mercy, and shalom in Messiah Yeshua, and Maranatha!

I am still taking questions for the Questions From the Body of Christ series. If you or someone you know has a question pertaining to the Word of God – theology, difficult passages, eschatology, etc. – I would really like to hear from you.
