Dear Lord God, I seek a true inner purity that only comes from You and I come to You, knowing that I stand unclean, impure and wretched before Your perfect throne of purity and truth. Lord I ask Your forgiveness for the way that I have not honoured You with my body – knowing that I have engaged in many impure acts and unchaste thoughts. I confess that I am unworthy to even kneel before Your perfect presence – and yet I now understand that Christ died to pay the price for all my sins and all my impurities. Thank You that by believing in Jesus, Who died to pay the price for all my sins, You have washed me clean from every dishonouring act. Thank You Father.
Help me Lord to flee fornication and all the accompanying evils that flow from illicit sexual relationships and unclean thoughts – knowing that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, Who dwells in me and lives within my heart. Help me to keep my outward actions and inner thoughts pure before Your eyes – whether I am in the public view or hid in a secret place, and away from the gaze of the world’s eye.
Purify the eyes of my heart and help me to keep the focus of my mind on the Lord Jesus - and develop in me I pray, thoughts, words, deeds and motives that are pure in Your sight and that will honour Your Holy name, in Jesus name I pray,
Lord, give me the purity, integrity and focus to be the kind of vessel You would desire.
Heavenly Father I thank You that Your perfect plans and purposes can never be frustrated and that You are working quietly in the background in order that Your divine will continues to progress towards its ultimate goal, as year succeeds to year.
I praise You that You have given me life and made me a new creation in Christ and thank You Father, that You have a special purpose for my life too. Thank You that by Your grace You are carrying out Your purposes in the lives of all Your children - that Christ is all and in all and I pray that this may be realized in my life too.
Enable and equip me I pray, to fulfill the plan and purpose that you have for me to do and I ask that You would use each gift and every talent that You have graciously given to me, to Your praise and glory.
Help me to fulfill all that You would have me do in my life and may I be obedient to Your voice as I seek to carry out Your purpose for my life. May I rejoice evermore and pray without ceasing.
May I give thanks in all things and hearken to the voice of Your Holy Spirit and may I hold fast to that which is good and abstain from all forms of evil – knowing that this is Your will for my life.. in Jesus name I pray,
Oh, thank You Lord Jesus, my heavenly Vine, for the fullness of Your blessing towards me. I want to know and understand more and more of what it means to simply rest in You – to abide in You in sweet union with my Saviour and remain in blessed communion with You in ever closer intimacy.
Teach me Lord and train me to rest in Your love – guard me and guide under the shelter of Your canopy, and reveal more and more of Yourself to me I pray,
Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus is our blessed Hope and that He died to pay the price for my sins and rose again, breaking the power of sin and death in the lives of all who trust in His name. Thank You that I am positioned in Christ and accepted in the Beloved.. and thank You that my citizenship is in heaven. How I praise You that I have been given eternal life and have a future hope in the Lord.. and thank You Father, that death is simply the doorway into a future life with Christ - when I will see You as You are, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father, thank you for the truth that the same almighty power of God that raised Christ from the dead will raise up all that have fallen asleep through Jesus. Thank You that I have eternal life in Him, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful truth that when Jesus is coming to take us to be with Himself forever. May I prepare my heart and soul to be ready for that special day when the trump of God sounds, and both the dead and living members of Your Body will receive our new, eternal body. We long for that day when we will all be translated into Your presence – but in the meantime I pray that I may live and work to Your praise and glory, AMEN.
