Jeremiah 9:24 (NLT) ā€” 24 But those who wish to boast should boast in this alone: that they truly know me and understand that I am the Lord who demonstrates unfailing love and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth, and that I delight in these things. I, the Lord, have spoken!

God is saying that if you wish to brag there is only one thing worthy of bragging about and that is that you know the Lord. I guess if you truly know the Lord bragging would not be a part of your lifestyle. But if it was, humbly bragging on God would be acceptable:)

I decided to pray this verse over everyone that considers Hilltop their family. This is how I prayed it.

Father I pray that my people will always want to brag about how you have been a wonderful Father. I pray that my people will read the scriptures to know you rather than for content. I know that the more they know you the more they will love you and the more that love will come out in their words and actions.

May my people always be grateful for you unfailing love and may they also imitate that unfailing love in all they do and say. Like you may they bring justice and righteousness with them wherever they go even in the most difficult of situations. May they be known for these things and may they take great delight in being able to show forth your unfailing love, justice and righteousness. And Father may they realize that when they do these things that they are putting a smile on your face and may that be incentive enough for them to keep imitating You.

Father continue to speak these words into the hearts of your people. Your words always accomplish what you want them to do. Thank you Father for your unfailing love, your justice and your righteousness.

You can tailor this prayer to pray it for anybody.

Be Inspired Hilltop!
