Loving Father I desire to keep in sweet communion with You and not to flirt with the agents of darkness. There are times that my heart has been divided and I know that darkness and light cannot walk together.

Father I want to learn to practice the truth today, so that I may grow in grace and in fellowship with You, in Jesus name pray, AMEN

I praise Your name, heavenly Father, for the blood of Jesus, which has cleansed me of all my sins and identified me with the righteousness of Christ. Your grace gives me the choice to walk in Your marvellous light or live my Christian life in the shadow of the world, the flesh and the devil. I choose from this day forward to walk in the light as Jesus is in the light, for I desire a more intimate fellowship with You, my Abba, my Father. I praise You for Your amazing grace and the wonder-working power of His blood, in His name I pray, AMEN.

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”

Thank You that my sins have been forgiven and the power that sin has over me was severed at the cross. Keep me from presumptuous thoughts about my own 'goodness'.. knowing that it is only through Christ that I have been forgiven and accepted by You - and only by His blood have I been brought back into fellowship with You - to HIM be all praise and glory, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You that Christ died to pay the price for my sins and broke the power of sin in my life... and thank You that in Him I have fellowship with You and free access to the throne of grace. I confess that I have not walked in spirit and truth but have been tempted to follow the desires and cravings of my own heart. I confess doing things that were displeasing to You and omitting to do those things that I ought to have done - but thank You that You are faithful and just to forgive all my sins and to keep on cleansing me I pray, from unrighteousness - thank You Father, in Jesus name, AMEN.

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
