Recently, many churches celebrated Trinity Sunday, the recognition of the Triune God we worship. This holy mystery – Three in One and One in Three – is at the heart of our faith. Unfortunately, many of us, in terms of our prayer life, are functionally Binitarian, we normally pray in the Name of Jesus plus 1, either the Father or The Holy Spirit, but not necessarily in the Name of The Three in One.
May I encourage you to pray in that Threeness and Oneness, summed up at the conclusion of Paul’s Second Letter to the believers in Corinth: May the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Love of God, and the Fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all (2 Corinthians 13:14). May the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ permeate our praying, as we receive that Grace in being made able to approach the throne of Grace through the gracious redemption in Christ, and may our praying cover the subjects of our prayer with that same embracing and transforming Grace. May the Love of God [The Father} prompt our praying, as we emulate the God Who loved us first as we love others, even enemies, as we blanket them with loving intercession. And may the Fellowship of The Holy Spirit bring us into communion with The Intercessor, Jesusk on The Throne, and with other intercessors who are joining in prayer worldwide with Him and with all who love The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
