Prayer of Agreement Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 18:19) ______________________________ A Prayer to Walk in God's Perfect Will Lord and God, You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things; by Your will they were created and have their being. You adopted me as Your child through Jesus Christ, in accordance with Your pleasure and will. I pray that I may be active in sharing my faith, so that I will have a full understanding of every good thing I have in Christ. Father, I ask You to give me a complete understanding of what You want to do in my life, and I ask You to make me wise with spiritual wisdom. Then the way I live will always honor and please You, and I will continually do good, kind things for others. All the while, I will learn to know You better and better. Jesus has been made unto me wisdom. I single-mindedly walk in that wisdom, expecting to know what to do in every situation and to be on top of every circumstance! I roll my works upon You [commit and trust them wholly to You; and You cause my thoughts to become agreeable to Your will, and] so my plans are established and succeed. You direct my steps and make them sure. I understand and firmly grasp what Your will is, for I am not vague, thoughtless and foolish. I stand firm and mature [in spiritual growth], convinced and fully assured in everything willed by You. Father, You have destined and appointed me to come progressively to know Your will [to perceive, to recognize more strongly and clearly, and to become better and more intimately acquainted with Your will]. I thank You, Father, for the Holy Spirit, Who abides [permanently] in me and guides me into all the truth (the whole, full truth) and speaks whatever He hears from You, and announces and declares to me the things that are to come. I have the mind of Christ and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart. So, Father, I have entered into Your blessed rest by believing (trusting in, clinging to, and relying on) You. Hallelujah! In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
Why did God harden Pharaoh's heart? Exodus 7:3-4 says, “But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and though I multiply my miraculous signs and wonders in Egypt he will not listen to you. Then I will lay my hand on Egypt and with mighty acts of judgment I will bring out my people the Israelites.” It seems unjust for God to harden Pharaoh’s heart and then to punish Pharaoh and Egypt for what Pharaoh decided when his heart was hardened. Why would God harden Pharaoh’s heart just so He could judge Egypt more severely with additional plagues? First, Pharaoh was not an innocent or godly man. He was a brutal dictator overseeing the terrible abuse and oppression of the Israelites, who likely numbered over 1.5 million people at that time. The pharaoh God hardened was an evil man, and the nation he ruled agreed with, or at least did not oppose, his evil actions. Second, on least a couple occasions, Pharaoh hardened his own heart against letting the Israelites go: “But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart” (Ex.8:15). It seems that God and Pharaoh were both active in one way or another in the hardening of Pharaoh’s heart. It could be that, as a result of Pharaoh’s hard-heartedness, God hardened Pharaoh’s heart even further, allowing for the last few plagues and bringing God’s full glory into view. Romans 9:17-18 declares, “For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: ‘I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.’ Therefore God has mercy on whom He wants to have mercy, and He hardens whom He wants to harden.” From a human perspective, it seems wrong for God to harden a person and then punish the person He has hardened. Biblically speaking, however, we have all sinned against God (Rom.3:23), and the just penalty for that sin is death (Rom.6:23). Therefore, God’s hardening and punishing a person is not unjust; it is actually merciful in comparison to what the person deserves.
