Heavenly Father, I pray that I may be be ready to be Christ's hand to help, Christ’s ears to listen, Christ's arms to hold, and Christ's voice to speak a word of comfort into the hearts of all who are in any kind of affliction. To His praise and glory, and in His name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am positioned in Christ and a member of His body, through time and into eternity. May I truly see that suffering in this world is a consequence of my union with Christ.. and that in all things Your grace is sufficient. Help me to see that in the same way that as my suffering for Christ abounds so also I have been given an over-abounding consolation and comfort from You. May my life be a witness to Your goodness and grace in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that no matter what sufferings and pain I may be called upon to face, help me to rejoice in my suffering, knowing that You are a God of great comfort and that Your grace is sufficient. I pray that my life and witness may be a comfort and encouragement to others so that we may all attain to the unity of the faith, and increase in a knowledge of the Son of God. I pray that that we may all come to a mature man and attain a measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are the God of all comforts, and that You are faithful to keep Your Word to all those that trust in You. May I cast all my cares upon You and trust in Your unfailing love, from this day forward and even forevermore. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am saved by grace through faith in Christ and thank You that You have promised to deliver me from all the dangers and distresses of this world and in the trials and tribulations that I may be called upon to face. Thank You that my hope is in Christ.. Who set me free from the bondage of sin and death and that He will deliver me again - to Your praise and glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You have given me all I need to walk godly in Christ Jesus. Help me today and in the days that lie ahead, to walk in sincerity and truth. May I not walk in the ways of the world, but trust in Your wisdom and grace for all my needs. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how blessed we are to be called Your children and to know that Christ took the punishment for our sins, so that in Him we could be the recipients of Your many precious promises - by faith. Thank You that all Your promises have been validated through Christ, knowing that in Him, they are YES and AMEN, to Your praise and glory. Thank You for Your Word, which is a lamp to our feet, a light to our path, and a testimony of Your great love for us. Thank You in Jesus' name AMEN.
Heavenly Father, as I consider all that has been given to me by grace, through simply trusting in Christ as my sin-sacrifice and heavenly Saviour, I humbly bow in grateful praise and thanksgiving for Your goodness and grace, towards a sinner such as I. Keep my heart broken before You and keep the Cross of Christ ever before my eyes, knowing that I am established in Him, and eternally secure by Your grace and mercy, through faith in Christ. May I die to self and live for Him alone, and may I grow in grace to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what an amazing God You are.. that while I was yet a sinner.. Christ died for me.. and not only saved me and forgave me of my sin but securely sealed me as Your promised possession and sent the Holy Spirit into my heart as a pledge and a guarantee, that Your promises to me.. and to all Your blood-bought children can never be broken. Thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the beautiful truth that we are we are saved and renewed by the Holy Spirit of God Who has taken up permanent residence in our lowly bodies, has baptised us into the Body of Christ, and sealed us as a pledge and guarantee of Your faithfulness towards us. Thank You for the many privileges that are ours in Christ and for Your many precious promises, which are all 'yes' and 'amen' in Christ Jesus our Lord, in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word. Help me to learn all the lessons that I can from the corrective instructions that Paul gave to the various churches. Keep me from developing a 'holier-than-thou' attitude, help me to recognise my faults, and help me to take steps to correct my actions and attitudes when I am straying away from Your instruction. Use me to help my brothers and sisters, if they should go astray, and use them to correct my faults, should I stray from the path of righteousness. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wisdom, grace, and sensitivity that Paul demonstrated in his corrective ministry to the Corinthian believers. Help me to be willing to address any issue that is causing a brother in Christ to stray from the path of righteousness. Keep my heart sensitive and soft so that I may speak the truth in love. Help me also, to be willing to receive and act on a word of correction from a fellow brother or sister in Christ, without automatically misunderstanding their motives. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that no matter what I may have to face in life, that in Christ I am always led to victory. I pray that as I rest in Him, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, that I may always be led in triumph to Your praise and glory. May my life be a living sacrifice - a burnt offering that becomes as sweet-smelling perfume of the knowledge of Him in every place You may choose to send me. I pray this in Jesus' name and for His glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that by faith we have become a fragrance of Jesus to our brothers and sisters in Christ. And Lord, for those that find us to be the stench of death in their nostrils, I pray that You would use us to witness to the truth of the glorious gospel of grace - so that together we may worship at Your feet to the praise of Jesus Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am Your child and that I am being changed from glory to glory by the power of the Spirit. I pray that You would use me to witness of Your goodness and grace to both the saved and to those that are lost. Shine the light of the glorious gospel into the hearts of those that are dead in their sins - so that they may come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ my Lord, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that there is nothing I can do to commend myself to You because Jesus did it all on the Cross, on my behalf. Thank You that by faith in His death and resurrection I have been declared righteous and have been brought into the family of God. Keep me from any legalistic leanings and give me discernment to identify and reject teachers and teachings that are not from You. I pray that my life may be a sweet aroma to my fellow believers and to You, and help me to grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus day by day. This I ask in His precious name, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, for the day by day working of the Holy Spirit in my life. Shape me into the vessel that You would have me be, and may my life be an open letter to all who cross my path so that I may be a good and faithful witness to my Saviour and King. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that our confidence is not in ourselves but in Christ, as the indwelling Spirit of God transforms us, day by day, into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus. May we be living epistles that show forth the love of God and the truth of the glorious gospel of grace in all we say and do for Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Loving Lord, help me to develop the humility of heart that only comes from total dependence on You. Without You I can do nothing. Praise God that in my weakness, I can do all things through Christ, Who gives me the strength. In His name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am a full and equal member of the Church and that by Your grace I was baptised into the Body of Christ at my salvation. Thank You that I can partake of the same spiritual benefits that have been promised to all Your children. Thank You for the gifts, graces, benefits, and ministry You have seen fit to give to me, by Your grace. I pray that I may be a willing and obedient member of Christ's Body and fulfil all the work You have prepared for me to do - to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name and for His eternal glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your written Word and the glories it contains. Help me not to become too familiar with its truth that I become complacent. Help me to read Your Word with childlike expectation and a deep-seated sense of awe. May I increasingly see the beauty of Jesus radiating from its pages, and I pray that as I gaze on His loveliness, I too will start to be transformed from glory to glory. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the many witnesses to the Word of truth. Thank You that salvation is freely available to all who will open their eyes to the truth of Your Word and unblock their ears to the satanic lies and deceptions that come from the evil one. Look down in pity on those that are in the valley of decisions and bring many into saving faith this day, through the convicting work of the Holy Spirit. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Father, I thank You that You sought me and found me. Keep my heart ever open to Your truth. I pray that many who hear the gospel today, will open their hearts to Your truth of the new covenant of grace and trust the Lord Jesus as Saviour. In His name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father, thank You for the Light You have given me, in the face of Jesus, my Saviour and Lord. It is only through His sufficient sacrifice that I have been so blessed, for without the shining Light of the Spirit of Christ within, I would continue to wallow in the darkness of the world. May the light of Your truth, love, and compassion, shine in me, and reflect from me the glories of Jesus, so that Your name may be glorified in all I say and do. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, that You have poured into my heart the light of Your gospel, which is from Christ Jesus my Saviour. I am not worthy to have received the new, resurrected life of Christ in this earthen vessel. Nor am I worthy to have the indwelling Holy Spirit in my heart to lead and guide me. But thank You that in Your grace, I have this wonderful treasure in my earthly body and I pray that the excellency of the power of God may work through me as I die to self and live for Christ. May my life be a living witness of Your saving grace and excellent power. I am not worthy to gather up the crumbs under Your table and yet You have given me this treasure in my heart, for which I thank You. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, although there are many things that are happening in my life that I do not understand, I thank You that You are in control and that the eternal Spirit is resident within my mortal body. I am so thankful that although I may be afflicted and perplexed, I will not be crushed to despair because I know that in Christ the victory is already won. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how I thank You for the way that You have worked in my life to draw me closer to Yourself through the things that I have suffered. Thank You that although I may be persecuted, You will never forsake me - and thank You that although I may be struck down, Your grace is sufficient, for Your strength is made perfect by my weakness. Thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus died and was raised from the dead for my sake. Thank You for the ministry of Paul whose life was a little reflection of Christ's deep love for us... as he selflessly shared the gospel of grace to lost souls and was willing to be delivered over to suffering and death for love of the Lord Jesus so that the life of Christ might be manifest through him. I pray that I would be willing to die to my own self-interest for the love of Christ Jesus so that I may also be used by You to spread the good news of the gospel of grace and the life of Jesus might be manifest in my mortal body too. This I ask in Jesus' precious name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a wonderful hope we have in Christ that, day by day, we are being renewed in our inner man, even though we can see our outward body is growing older and deteriorating. Thank You for my present privileged position in Christ and for the glorious future destiny I have in heaven. I pray that I will not lose heart as I see my outer man decaying, but will stand strong in the faith and press on for the upward call of God in Christ Jesus, as I watch for His any day return when this mortal will put on immortality and this perishable body will be clothed in an imperishable one, for Your greater praise and glory. How I thank and praise You, in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Praise Your Holy Name O Lord my God, for the glory without limit that awaits all who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour. May I face the afflictions and difficulties that are inevitable in this world system, with the same eternal perspective, godly grace, patient endurance, and unspeakable joy, that I see in Paul. Help me not to look at the circumstances of life with dread and fear, but rather, may I view them as part of the eternal tapestry of my life that You are weaving together for good. I look forward with joy to the limitless glories that You have prepared for those that love You, no matter what difficulties and dangers I may be called upon to face in this world. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for my life and the knowledge that by grace through faith I have been made a new creation in Christ and that this earthly body will be replaced with a heavenly dwelling, not made with hands but formed and fashioned by my God and Saviour. Thank You for the words of encouragement in Paul's letter to the Corinthians, that no matter what trials, tribulation, persecution, and pain we may have to face while living in this earthly tent, we have the assurance of a permanent building from God - an eternal house in the heavens, for which I praise and thank You. Keep me ever mindful that this world is not my home and that my citizenship and eternal inheritance is kept for me in heaven. Thank You that one day I will be dressed in immortality and be made like unto Jesus, my God and my Saviour. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for my life and for my new life in Christ which gives me full assurance that I will one day rise to life immortal and be clothed in a dwelling from heaven that You have prepared for me. Thank You that I have a hope in Christ and that nothing can separate me from Your love. Give me the strength I need to live my life in the way that honours You, and may I look day by day to that blessed hope I have in Christ Jesus Who died for my sin and rose from the grave so that I too may rise to life immortal. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that in Christ we have an assurance that we are not only forgiven of our sin and have received the gift of eternal life, by faith, but are part of the new creation in Christ and have passed from death to life. Thank You that in Him we will not be found naked, but have received an inheritance in heaven and will soon be clothed with a new, eternal body, that far surpasses this frail, dying frame. Thank You for sending Jesus to be the propitiation for my sin and thank You that by His death and resurrection, sin and death have been defeated. I praise You for the wonderful assurance that my body will also be resurrected and I will be complete and blameless at the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ - spirit, soul, and body. Hallelujah! Praise His holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a joy to know that a day is coming when all that is mortal will be swallowed up by life, and we will stand the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You for the truth that we will one day be clothed in a new, resurrected body, like Christ's own glorified body. Thank You that we are not under God's condemnation because we have trusted Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and how I praise You that the suffering and groaning of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. I praise You for Your goodness and grace, and I pray in the holy name of Jesus, my Lord and my God, AMEN.
Thank You, Lord, that You are preparing me for my heavenly home. Thank You that You gave me the Holy Spirit as a pledge, guaranteeing my future hope in Christ. All praise to Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the confidence I have in You and Your Word. Help me in this life, to walk worthy of the calling You have on me, until that wonderful day when I will step out of this earthly sphere into the eternal realms of heaven and be forever with the Lord. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father, thank You for my great salvation. I pray that You would help me walk by faith, to live by faith, to pray in faith, and to trust all that is written in Your Word of truth - by faith. I pray that I may die to myself and my own abilities, and rest entirely on You and Your sufficient grace in all I say and do. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Loving Lord, thank You for Your written Word which contains all that we need as unbelievers to be forgiven of sins, as well as all that we need as Your saved children, to live godly lives in Christ Jesus.
Father, I realise that in Your grace You have excluded no one from Your gift of Salvation, but You simply hold us accountable to believe in Your precious Son. But now I understand that You also hold me accountable to grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus, by faith in Christ and not by trusting in my own abilities, if I am to become a mature believer in Christ.
Lord, I want to grow in my Christian life and to live my life as unto the Lord. Teach me Your ways and guide me with Your Holy Spirit. Lord, I want to be accountable to You in my Christian life. Give me a teachable Spirit and a desire to apply all the truths that I am learning, for I desire to do Your will in my life. In Jesus' name I pray,
Loving Father, how astonishing that Christ's death paid the price for all my sins and that His life has given me a brand-new life in Him as well. I pray that I may no longer live for myself, but that I may live my life for Christ alone. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Lord and Heavenly Father, what glories there are within the finished work of Christ. Thank You that Christ died for me, and that by believing on His saving work at Calvary, all my sins are forgiven, forever. Thank You that through Christ's Resurrection I have eternal life and His resurrected life has now become my new life in Christ. Thank You, Father, for the grace that is found in Jesus Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, may my love for Christ so constrain me that I choose to live day by day in spirit and in truth - not paying attention to things in this fallen, failing, finite world according to the flesh.. but may I develop a spiritual perspective in all things and live godly in Christ Jesus, my risen, ascended and glorified God and Saviour - in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, that in Christ all things are made new. Thank You that in Christ, old things have passed away, and I have been made a new creation, in HIM. Help me to truly understand that this amazing truth is not only something for the future but something that took place the moment I believed in Christ as Saviour. I pray that I may come to a deeper understanding of what it is to be a part of a new, and heavenly creation in Christ, in His name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what an amazing privilege that You should use such as me to be your mouthpiece and be used as an ambassador for Christ, to a lost and hurting world. Enable me to share the wonderful news that God has reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ and that we can partake in that reconciliation, simply by believing in Him. I pray that many may come to trust in Jesus as Saviour in the days that lie ahead. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, for Christ. Thank You that in Him I am reconciled back to You and clothed in the righteousness of Jesus my Saviour. Help me tell others about You so that many may be reconciled to You. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, for Your gracious-kindness, loving-mercy, and long-suffering toward me and all humanity. Thank You for reconciling the world back to Yourself, through Your only begotten Son. Help me to be a worthy witness of the truth of Your Word and boldly declare the message of reconciliation to all with whom I come in contact. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Father, dear Father God, I can scarcely take in the depth of love You have for me... a sinner who deserves nothing but condemnation. I praise You for Your grace, and love, and wisdom, and mercy towards me. I thank You, Father, that You made Him Who knew no sin to be made sin for ME, so that I might become the righteousness of God in Him. Thank You that through Christ there is no condemnation for those that believe in Him as Saviour. Thank You there is no condemnation for those that are IN Christ. I do believe... and I thank You, Father. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your amazing grace and for that wonderful 'day of salvation' when Jesus rose from the dead and broke the power of Satan, sin, death, and hell. Lord, no one knows how many days they have left on the earth. Please bring many who are in that valley of decision, to a saving faith in Christ, before it is too late. Because now is the accepted time and today is the day of salvation. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the ministry and witness of Paul and the many things I can learn from his dedicated attitude in sharing the truth of the Gospel. I praise and thank You for the assurance that I also have, that You are my Defence and my Defender and I can trust You no matter what difficulties or dangers I may encounter. May You be glorified in my life, and may I speak the Word of truth boldly, in the power of God, taking up the weapons of righteousness wherever I go. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Thank You, my Father God, that in Christ I have an eternal perspective, whatever happens in my life. In Him, I have a lasting joy and inner peace, no matter what difficulties arise. May I be a living epistle to all the people I meet today and may I, like the Lord Jesus, learn obedience through the trials that You have allowed in my life, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am Your child and have been made a new creation in Christ. Help me to choose my friends and acquaintances wisely. Direct me, I pray, in the choices I make with regard to the close, personal relationships that I choose to engage in, and may all I say and do be to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what an incredible privilege to be Your child and to have the Holy Spirit living within my human frame. Thank You, Lord, that You have chosen to take up residence in the heart of all believers and that we have been given the 'ministry of reconciliation'. Thank You, Father, that in Your grace I have become New Creation in Christ, and am a member of His mystic body, and thank You that the Church is His representative on earth. Fulfil now, O Lord, the work that you have for me to do, and may I live for Your glory and consecrate my life to Your service. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Father God, over the years I know that many times I have been enticed by the world and each time, I discover myself out of fellowship with You. I desire in word and deed, mind and motive, to be separated unto You, in the power of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that by faith, I have become Your child. Thank You, that You are not only the God Who created me, but my Heavenly Father, Who has promised to be with me and to walk with me, and Who desires to fellowship with me. Thank You for sending Jesus to be my Saviour, and that in Him I have been made a new creation. Keep me from fraternising with the world, and help me to be a living testimony of Your goodness and grace. Help me to live a life that is holy and acceptable to You O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Dear Heavenly Father, I kneel in awe and wonder when I consider the grace that has been showered on me, that I should be called a child of the holy Creator-God and made joint-heir with Your beloved Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. I pray, that as I gaze into the face of the lovely Lord Jesus, I may pass from glory to glory, and become increasingly conformed into Christ's image, and separate myself from the impurities and lusts of the world system and my fleshly self. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for this instructive and comforting epistle from Paul to the Corinthians. I pray that I may develop a teachable spirit and be ready and sufficiently humble to react correctly to any reproof, correction, or training in righteousness I may receive. Keep me looking to Jesus, and keep me growing in grace. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, You know all that I have done in my life, and how I have skirted around the issue of my abortion, dismissed the significance of this sin in my life and tried to pretend that it was no big deal.
But Lord, I now confess to You this terrible sin and realise increasingly that it is detestable in Your sight to abort a new little life. I confess my wrongdoing and grieve to think of the unborn baby that I chose to terminate in my womb.
I confess my sin and repent of my casual attitude and ask for Your healing touch on my life. Help me to release this painful memory to You and to accept that Your promise of forgiveness to all who repent of their sins and turn to Christ.
Thank You that You paid the price for all my sins at Calvary and that You have promised to remove them as far as the east is from the west… Thank You in Jesus name,
Loving Lord and Heavenly God, how great is Your grace and love toward me, that You would strip Yourself of all You had and all You were, to live a life of humiliating poverty so that I could be saved from my sins and inherit the riches of eternal life. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, create in me a clean heart, I pray, and develop in me a generous spirit. I pray that I may become a cheerful, generous, and gracious giver, in every area of my life. Help me to apply the principle of sowing and reaping abundantly so that others may be blessed and Your name may be glorified. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You have given me all things richly to enjoy and that everything I have comes from You. May I never be under the illusion that I can outgive Your over-abounding gift of grace, in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. May I give faithfully, cheerfully, and generously of my time, my talents, and my money. May the motive behind my giving be pure and ever open to Your scrutiny. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the free gift of salvation and all that You have lavishly bestowed on me freely, by Your grace. Give me a generous heart that gives willingly and cheerfully to others, as a product of my love for You. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your abundant and abounding grace and for all that You have provided for our riches in glory. Enable me, by Your grace, to bring forth a rich harvest of eternal blessings and spiritual rewards. Help me, in the power of Your Holy Spirit, to live a life of practical righteousness, and continue to transform my heart and mind into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus, and for His greater glory. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of the saints in Corinth who lovingly provided for the material needs of their brothers and sisters undergoing some serious hardships in their Christian lives. I pray that I may be ready and willing to help recognise and respond to the needs and necessities of my Christian brothers and sisters. Develop in me a generous heart and caring concern for others, and may Christ be seen in me and glorified through me. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for the unspeakably precious gift of Your dear Son, Jesus Christ Who has been freely given to me and to all who will simply believe on His name. Father, the gift of Your only begotten Son is beyond all expression, beyond all measure, and beyond all bounds. I fall on my face and worship You for Your unspeakably precious gift to me. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that, like Paul, I may be meek and gentle in my Christian witness while being ready and willing to lovingly challenge false teachers, fearlessly expose false doctrines, earnestly contend for the faith, preach the Word in season and out of season, and be ready to give an answer for the hope I have in Christ. Thank You for the message and ministry of Paul, and I pray for wisdom and discernment so that I may not be tossed about by any wind of doctrine but able to stand fast on the Word of truth. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, there are many that seek to demolish the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ through scornful sarcasm and ill-imagined philosophies. Thank You that in Christ, we have the Word of God and the power of prayer to demolish any long-winded, ungodly opinions of men with their impressive credentials and dismissive policies. May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart reflect the truth of Your Word. May I depend on You to bring down all the strongholds and arguments that are fired against me that seek to discredit the truth of the glorious gospel of God. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Loving Father, too often my thoughts are not kept in captivity to obey You. Help me to become more and more captivated with Christ so that all else melts away as I gaze on the beauty of His presence within my heart. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for my justification in Christ and for His sanctifying life in me. I pray for the Church, the whole Body of Christ, that we may grow in godly wisdom and grace, become spiritually mature in the faith, and pure in thought, word, and deed. May we all continue to be conformed into the likeness of the Lord Jesus, day by day, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing. And may we stand before You as a pure virgin on that glorious day, when we will know as we are known. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the Word of truth and the pure gospel of salvation, which I have received by grace through faith in Christ Jesus my Lord. Give me discernment as I study Your Word and help me to recognise when the truth of Scripture is being distorted in any way. I pray that I will not be led astray from the simplicity of the glorious gospel of grace and from pure devotion to Jesus Christ. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for my great salvation. Thank You for Your Word, the truths it contains, and the warnings it gives. Give me wisdom and insight to identify error and keep me from being influenced by those who pretend to be men of God, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. Thank You that my hope and my strength is in You and that when I am weak in my own importance, I am strong in the Lord and in the might of His power. Help me to boast in the Cross of Christ and Him alone - for Your greater praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the life and ministry of Paul and the wonderful truths that are contained in his many epistles. I pray that, with Your grace, I would be kept from prideful thoughts and ungodly actions. Keep me low at the Cross, walking in humble obedience - and thank You, Father, that Your grace is sufficient. Thank You that Your strength is made perfect in my weakness. May my life be a living testimony to Your goodness and grace. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your great goodness, and thank You that Your grace is sufficient to bring me through whatever difficulties, dangers, persecution, or pain I may be called upon to suffer. Thank You for the wonderful testimony and teachings of Paul and the truths that have become mine, by faith in Christ. May I finish the course You have prepared for me to do, and help me to be ready and willing to participate in the suffering of Christ to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Your grace is sufficient for all my needs. Help me to recognise and rejoice in the knowledge that Your power is made perfect in my own weakness. Help me to boast all the more gladly in my inabilities so that Your great ability may be manifest in my life. May everything I do be to Your praise and glory, my Lord and my God. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that I may learn to be content in all things for Christ's sake - and help me to be increasingly conscious of my own human weakness so that I may be supplied day by day.. by the strength of Your mighty power, so that Christ may be glorified in my life, to His praise and glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of the apostle Paul and his deep desire to share the truth of the glorious gospel of God with those whom You placed in his path. Thank You for his example of unquenchable love as he spent his life and was spent, in the service of Christ. May I spend and be expended to Your praise and glory. May my love for others only be exceeded for my deepening love for You. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that You would examine me and show me any area in my life that is acting counter to Your desire for me. I pray that my life may show forth the love and grace of the lovely Lord Jesus Christ, shining in and through me. May my life honour and glorify You from this day forward. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your great love for me. Thank You for the gift of the indwelling Holy Spirit and thank You for sending the Lord Jesus to be the sacrifice for my sin. I pray that the grace of the Lord Jesus, the love of God the Father, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit would be with all Your blood-bought children - today and until the coming of Christ in the clouds for His church. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
