CHALLENGE TAKEN from the pdf mentioned back here
Suggestion for today from there:
Day 39: Today’s prayer challenge. Read Romans 8:31-39. Then glean the essence of those verses and pray to God about your life in application to those verses. This prayer time I ask you to know that a relationship with Jesus is essential to make it through this life with hope and confidence.
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?
33 Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies;
34 who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 Just as it is written,
“For Your sake we are being put to death all day long;
We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Today, I present my body as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to You, my Father-God. I will not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of my mind, that I may prove Your good, acceptable and perfect will for me. With Jesus' help I will continually offer my sacrifice of praise to You by telling others of the glory of Your name. I'll not forget to do good and to share what I have with those in need, for such sacrifices are very pleasing to You, my Father. Amen.
Scripture Reading: Romans 12:1-2 Hebrews 13:15-16 (Living Bible)
