Prayers by Pete: I Am

Written by on April 24, 2017

Jesus said, “I am the Vine.”

John 15:1 I am the true vine, and My Father is the vine-dresser.
John 15:2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it, that it may bear more fruit.
John 15:4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.

We are the branches.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer I who lives, but Christ lives in me; the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and delivered Himself up for me.
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes forever.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.


Those who abide in me, I abide in them.

John 15:16 You did not choose Me but I chose you and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should remain; whatever you ask of the Father in My name, He may give it to you.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
Galatians 5:23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Hebrews 12:2 Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.


For they will bear much fruit.

Matthew 7:18 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit but the bad trees bear bad fruit.
Matthew 7:19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
Matthew 7:20 So then, you will know them by their fruit.
Matthew 7:21 Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord , Lord”, will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but those who do the will of My Father who is in Heaven.
Matthew 7:24 Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them may be compared to a wise person who built their house upon the Rock.


Apart from Christ, we can do nothing.

John 14:6 Jesus said to them, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.”
John 8:12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world; those who follow Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
Matthew 19:26 Jesus said to them, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Philippians 4:13 We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eyes upon you.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the word, and the Word was God.
John 1:2 He was in the beginning with God.
John 1:3 All things came into being by Him and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
John 1:4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

Heavenly Father, thank you for the love and the grace from the “I am”. We are blessed each day.
Humbly I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Please forward this so others may be blessed.
