Praying from Matthew 17:12. Themes: Suffering, Recognition, Prophets.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for the promise that Elijah has already come and that even though he was not recognized, he fulfilled his purpose. I claim this promise for myself, knowing that you have a plan for my life and that you will guide me on the path you have set for me.

I also claim the promise that even though the Son of Man suffered at the hands of others, he ultimately triumphed over death and sin. I pray that you would give me the strength to endure any trials or suffering that may come my way, knowing that you are with me always.

Thank you for your love and faithfulness, and for the promises that you have given us in your word. May I always trust in your plan for my life and seek to follow you with all my heart.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Verse: but I tell you that Elijah has come already, and they didn’t recognize him, but did to him whatever they wanted to. Even so the Son of Man will also suffer by them.”
Matthew 17:12

This is a Promise. The verse is a statement that the Son of Man will suffer at the hands of others, just as Elijah suffered without recognition.
