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 I may grow in grace and that my life may show forth the love and grace of the lovely Lord Jesus Christ shining in and through me, to Your praise and glory - from this day forward, in Jesus name, AMEN.
“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?”
Source: Verse of the
day for 2 Corinthians 13:5
Loving heavenly Father, how my heart bows before You in humble and sincere gratitude for all the many blessings that You have bestowed upon me – for the life that You have given me and the way that You have sustained me and cared for me, for which I offer You my grateful thanks.
Thank You for my family and friends, my community and church and all the wonderful ways that You have led and guided us through both the joyful times and the difficult seasons of life.
Thank You for the wonderful world into which we have been placed and the beauties that surround us - the sea and the sky and the hills and the valleys – for all the delights that You have placed in our lives in such abundance.
Thank You most of all for sending us the Lord Jesus to die on the cross so save us from our sins – covering us with His own perfect righteousness and raising us up to sit with Him in heavenly places, when we deserve nothing but punishment. Lord we are not worthy to untie Your shoe-laces and yet in Your great grace and mercy You have freely given us all things to richly enjoy. Words cannot express the gratitude that is in my heart. Help me Lord to be the person You would have me be.. in Jesus name I pray,
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be
with you all. Amen.”
