Loving Father I pray that in all I say and do that You may be lifted high in my heart so that people only see Jesus in me, until I am nothing and He is all in all, in His name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for my salvation and my redemption and that I am fully reconciled to You through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that Jesus is the propitiation for my sins and that He was willing to identify with my sinfulness so that I may be eternally identified with His death and wonderful resurrected life - which I have received by grace through faith in His sacrificial work on Calvary's cross - praise His holy name. I pray that in the days ahead I set all else aside, except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a wonderful example of a man of humility and grace who did not seek to use His own wisdom, academic ability, intellectual stature, or oratory skills in his ministry, but recognised his own human limitation and instead, became a living sacrifice unto God. I pray that I will never seek to elevate my own importance in the eyes of man but present my life as a living sacrifice, holy to the Lord - so that in Your power I may be enabled to share the simple gospel of grace to a lost and dying world, not in my own strength, but through the power of Him Who called me out of darkness into His glorious light. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You gave to Paul and Your other apostles the message of the cross, which is the greatest demonstration of the Spirit and of power, for it saved a wretch like me. Thank You that salvation does not necessitate worldly wisdom, but comes through the message of the cross. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times that I have sought to do things in my own strength.. or tried to use my own powers of persuasion to lead others to Christ. Help me to share the truth of the gospel of grace, simply and truthfully, as led by the Spirit of God, so that my faith and theirs, may be founded on the truth, and not influenced by worldly rhetoric, to Your praise and glory, this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for opening my understanding to the message of the cross, which is the power on which my faith is founded - through Christ Jesus my Saviour. Thank You that You have opened my understanding to the truth of the glorious gospel of grace. I pray that many, who are dead in sin and deceived by the vain philosophies of this world.. would be convicted of their sin and converted to faith in Christ.. our God and Saviour - in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how astonishing to know that the mystery of the cross, that was hidden for ages and generations, has been revealed to those who have trusted Christ for the forgiveness of sins. How we praise and glorify You that eye has not seen.. and ear has not heard the amazing things, that You have prepared for those that love You. Increase my love and longing for You, and help me to share the truth of the gospel of grace, with those You place in my path - for Your greater praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, Your plans and purposes are unsurpassed and I thank You for bringing me into Your family and opening up to my understanding the wonderful works of God and the amazing wisdom of God's plan of salvation. I pray that I may grow in grace and in a deepening knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, with every passing day, and in Whose name I pray, AMEN
Thank You Heavenly Father, that in Your goodness and grace You chose to reveal Yourself and the wonderful message of redemption in Your Word and the amazing prophetic scriptures which reveal the end from the beginning. We pray that we would earnestly study to show ourselves approved unto God.. but keep us from hankering after a knowledge of things which You have chosen to keep hidden from our sight. Thank You that our blessed hope is in Christ and the wonders of our eternal future are hidden in Him - to Whom be all praise and glory AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wisdom from above, and for the inspired, Word of God, which contains all we need for life and godliness. Thank You for the indwelling Holy Spirit, Who continues to guide us into all truth, as we study the Scriptures and submit to His leading and guidance. Thank You in Jesus name, AMEN
Heavenly Father, thank You that You convicted me of my sin, of Christ's righteousness and of judgement, which has been passed on all who do not by grace through faith come to trust in Christ as Saviour. Help me to live a spiritual life and not revert back to carnal pursuits and worldly ways, but may I walk in spirit and truth in the power of Your Holy Spirit and may I grow in spiritual wisdom and discernment day by day to Your praise and glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a great joy and privilege it is to know our body is a Temple of God and by the power of Your indwelling Holy Spirit we are enabled to judge all things and be appraised by no-one. Keep me low at the cross and ever open to the leading and guidance of Your Holy Spirit. I pray that I may continue to grow in grace and stand firm on the unchangeable Word of Truth. Prevent me from being enticed into the ways of the world or influenced by human wisdom. Guide me into all truth I pray and may the mind of Christ dwell in me richly - this I pray in His holy name, AMEN.
Father God, thank You that I have the mind of Christ. Please take my life and let it be consecrated, Lord, to You. Use my intellect to Your glory and help me to live like Jesus lived - in humble obedience before You, only doing those things that You would have me to do. Help me to place all my carnal inclinations on the altar of sacrifice, and live for You alone, for I want to live in spirit and truth, for Your praise and glory. In Christ's name I pray, AMEN.
