Heavenly Father, thank You for the Scriptures. Thank You for the truths they contain and the lessons we can learn from them. Guide me into all truth and help me to abound in love towards my brothers and sisters in Christ. Help me to be proactive in my prayers, established in the faith and faithful in interceding for all the body of Christ. May we ever hope in the Lord and look for His any-day return, when He comes to take us to be with Himself – this we ask in Jesus name. AMEN.
“And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men
, even as we do
Source: Verse of the
day for 1 Thessalonians 3:12
Dear heavenly Father, at this time of the year when the Church remembers the first coming of our Lord and Saviour into the world, we want to lift up our hearts and voices in prayer and praise to You, for sending the Lord Jesus Christ into the world to be our Saviour– so that through his blood we may be brought back into a right relationship with Yourself and receive the gift of eternal life – by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
At this time our thoughts are specially drawn in remembrance to the wonderful time, so long ago, when God in His grace sent the eternal Son of His love into the world to become the propitiation for our sins. How we rejoice when we recall that He set aside His glory and great majesty to take on the form of a man and be born into this world as a tiny baby, in such humble circumstances.
Lord in a world that is become more secular, I pray that the people of God who are called by Your name would take time to reflect with awe and wonder on this amazing truth and to prepare our hearts for the time when Jesus Christ will return again in power and great glory at His second Advent..
Purify our hearts we pray and sanctify our lives so they we may serve you in newness of life not only in this special season of Advent but every day of our lives – until You come to take us to be with You forever, in Jesus name we pray,
“To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.”
