Praying through Matthew 17:5

Heavenly Father, I praise and thank You for the truth of Your Word, and that Christ set aside the glory of His majesty to be born into this world, to live a perfect life, and to die a sacrificial death, so that by faith in Him I might be saved. I stand in awe and wonder that Christ should strip Himself of His heavenly glory for love of me. Thank You, in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”
(Matthew 17:5)

Praying through Matthew 17:11

Heavenly Father, I stand in awe of Your amazing plan of redemption. Thank You, that I am saved by grace through faith in Jesus, the Jewish Messiah. Thank You that like Moses, Elijah, Peter, James and John on the Mount of Transfiguration, I have been granted a peep into the coming kingdom of Christ. Thank You, that You loved me so much that You sent Jesus to be my Saviour, and that through Him all the families of the earth are blessed. Thank You, that in Christ, I have already been granted a place in Your kingdom, and I pray that the hearts of many of Your people will be turned back to faith in God and hope in Jesus, their Messiah-King, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.”

Praying through Matthew 17:12

Thank You, Father, for the ministry of men like Elijah and John the Baptist, who were not ashamed of the gospel of God, for it has the power of God unto salvation to ALL who believe. Thank You for the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who came to Israel as their Messiah and King and was ready and willing to be despised, rejected, falsely accused, and cruelly crucified on the Cross, so that all who believe on His name, would not perish but have everlasting life. Thank You for Your amazing plan of redemption, and use me in whatever way You will, to forward Your perfect redemptive plan. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.”
(Matthew 17:12)

Praying through Matthew 17:20

Heavenly Father, I come to You in faith, knowing that You must be the only object of my faith and that without You I can do nothing. I put my trust in You, Lord, knowing that You are faithful and will never disappoint me. Help me look to Jesus, moment by moment, and to anchor my faith in Him Who is the Living Word, knowing that without Him I can do nothing... and yet in Christ I can do all things. Thank You, Father, that it is not the amount of faith that is important in Your sight, but the One in Whom I place my faith. Thank You for Your goodness, grace, and unfailing love. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
(Matthew 17:20)
