Prayers by Pete – Rooted in Christ

How deep do the roots of a tree grow?

How strong is our faith?

2 Peter 3:18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord

and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory,

both now and to the day of eternity Amen.


Root growth depends on three things;

Water, oxygen, and good soil.

John 7:38 Who believes in Me, as the Scriptures said,

from their inter most being shall flow rivers of living water.


The Holy Spirit is the breath of God.

Job 33:4 The Spirit of God has made us,

and the breath of the almighty gives us life.

Psalm 33:6 By the word of the Lord  the heavens were made,

and by the breath of His mouth all their host.


Our heart is like good soil.

Matt 13:23 And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil,

this is the person who hears the word and understands it;

who indeed bears fruit and brings forth some a hundredfold, 

some sixty and some thirty.


Our spiritual walk is just like a tree,

How deep do our roots grow for Christ?

Luke 8:25 Where is our faith? and they were fearful and amazed saying

to one another, Who then is this that He commands even the wind and

the water, and they obey Him.

John 14:1 Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.


Heavenly Father please touch our hearts so we would be strong

like a mighty oak. Our faith is firmly “Rooted in Christ”

Rom 8:31 What then shall we say to these things?

If God is for us, who is against us?


Humbly I pray this in the name of Jesus   amen

Pete Sagen

To God be the Glory
