Heavenly Father, thank You for sending the Lord Jesus to be the sacrifice for our sin and for the many privileges that accompany our great salvation. Thank You that salvation is free to all, and comes without cost. I pray that I would feel constrained to carry out the good work that You have prepared for me to do and to tell others the good news that Christ died for their sin and rose again.. so that by faith in Him they too might have forgiveness of sin and life everlasting - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that in the power of Your Holy Spirit I may conduct my Christian life in spirit and in truth. Help me to exercise self-control and to consider the needs of others before my own. May I endure patiently in the trials of life, life godly in Christ Jesus and run the race that is set before me to Your praise and gory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what an amazing testimony we see in the life of Paul, who demonstrated a disciplined life, that was spent preaching the glorious gospel of grace to Jew and Gentile alike. Thank You that all who live godly in Christ Jesus and exercise self-control in our Christian life are promised an imperishable crown, that will never fade away. Help me to press on for the upward call of God in Christ Jesus my Lord and help me to live and work for Your praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
