Prayer for 1 Peter 1:13

“Therefore, get your minds ready for action, being self-disciplined, and set your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

Prepare Our Hearts In This Time Of Advent

Heavenly Father thank You for the opportunity for us to once again examine our hearts during this lovely time of Advent, and the faith in Christ Jesus that we confess.

Keep our hearts aglow with love for Jesus and help to wonder more and more about amazing the grace that You have shown towards sinful man, in sending Your only begotten Son to come to earth, as a tiny human baby - so that He could bear the punishment for the sins of the whole world on His holy shoulders.

It never ceases to amaze us that Christ Jesus should set aside His heavenly glory and be conceived of the Holy Spirit by the virgin Mary, birthed into the human family as the promised Seed of the woman and be worshipped as a tiny baby in a humble stable at Bethlehem, by simple shepherds and singing angels alike.

It was Love incarnate that visited the earth so many years ago and that same love that saved us from our sins and came to dwell within the hearts of all that trust in Jesus as Saviour. Heavenly Father, accept our grateful sacrifice of praise – and may we come to know You more and love You better in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name we pray,

Amen

Heavenly Father, how I praise Your holy name for our position in Christ and the privileges that come with being in Him. I pray that I may learn to gird up my mind and guard my thinking day by day, so that I am not tossed about by the storms of life not unsettled by the things that are happening in our world today. I pray that I may be sober and steadfast in my walk and not influenced by the ungodly worldview that has permeated every area of this world and may I keep the eyes of my heart looking to Jesus, knowing that He is soon to be revealed at His coming - to His praise and glory, AMEN.
