If you’ve been following My TEA CUPP Prayers for awhile, you know I enjoy finding a theme for Bible verses. In my first book, My TEA CUPP Prayers, I gave a week of verses to use as conversation starters when praying with Jesus. I hope to include these themed collections in my next book, More TEA CUPP Prayers. And what better theme for our TEA CUPP prayers, than a group of verses about cups! Please enjoy these verses as you have tea with Jesus today!
T for Thanksgiving:
Then He took the cup, and when He had given thanks He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. Mark 14:23 (NKJV)
E for Exalting:
O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
You maintain my lot.
Psalm 16:5 (NKJV)
A for Admitting:
…first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also. Matthew 23:26 (NKJV)
C for Calling:
I will take up the cup of salvation,
And call upon the name of the Lord. Psalm 116:13 (NKJV)
U is for Understanding our story:
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over. Psalm 23:5 (NKJV)
…Shall I not drink the cup which My Father has given Me? John 18:11 (NKJV)
P is for Promises:
For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward. Mark 9:42 (NKJV)
P is for Petitioning:
“O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” Matthew 26:39 (NKJV)
Today’s TEA CUPP: Pull out your favorite cup for this special TEA CUPP Prayer time! Let these verses about cups be conversation starters as you pour out your heart to Jesus. You can use one verse each day of the week, or pray them all every day. Here’s a sobering verse: Look up Psalm 75:8. It’s a good reminder to pray for the lost. Be blessed in your cup time with Jesus, my friend!
And He said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will.” Mark 14:36
