Praying for 30 days- day 3

Today's scripture from my book Today I pray by Stonecroft ministries is John 6:44 but I am going to add verses 35-45.

"And Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.'
The Jews then complained about Him, because He said, ' I am the bread which came down from heaven.' And they said, 'Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, ‘I have come down from heaven’?'
Jesus therefore answered and said to them, 'Do not murmur among yourselves. No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.  It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God. Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me.'."
Father, I pray that You will draw _________ to Jesus Christ in true faith and repentance. 
Jesus is the bread of life! Jesus was sent by the Father from heaven. He was making Himself available through Jesus. When we believe in Him, we will be completely satisfied by Him. We will always be full. But it only comes from the Father. Through God's word and the learning of who Jesus is, is the only way to the Father. He draws us to Himself and we have the choice to to believe in Him or to reject Him. It is His desire for everyone to believe.

The past few weeks has been very emotional for my husband's family. His grandfather is 92 years old and is very frail physically and mentally. My mother in law is constantly over there helping him to get to place to place. He has made the choice to no longer walk to the bathroom because he is that weak. My husband has a very close relationship with his grandfather and it tears him up to see his grandfather this way. I know that his grandfather is still here on this earth for a reason. Sometimes my limited human mind honestly do not know why he is still here. But instead of having those feelings I need to be praying this prayer for him, that the Father will draw him near to Him for true faith and repentance so my husband's grandfather can have peace in the last days he has on this earth. It is only through Him.


  1. I am visiting you as your neighbor at Jennifer's. I'm sorry about your husband's grandfather. No matter how old our loved ones become, it is still hard to even think of losing them. I hope this praying journey brings you ever closer to Jesus in you. May we all be fed with the Bread of Life!

  2. I'm also visiting via Jennifer's blog (nr. 11). Thank you for this beautiful post and turning our eyes to our Heavenly Father. I'm so sorry for your family's grief during this time. Lifting your husband's grandfather up in prayer: Lord draw him close to you, into your loving embrace and bring peace and comfort to him and all his dear family.

    The Scripture you quote is very dear to me. Reading it here again feels like God's love reaching out to me again in my struggles. Thank you.
