Eternal Gratitude For the Free Grace of God

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,

AMEN
“We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your amazing grace. Thank You that Christ died to pay the price for my sin, and thank You for that wonderful 'day of salvation', when Jesus rose from the dead, and broke the power of Satan, sin, death and hell in my life.. and in the lives of ALL who believe on Christ for the forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting. Bring, we pray, many who are in that valley of decisions to a saving faith in Christ, which gives assurance of sins forgiven, and life everlasting, through faith in Him - in Whose name we pray, AMEN.

“(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)”

Guide Me Through All Of Life’s Obstacles

Help me Lord Jesus to keep my whole focus on You. Life is becoming so hard and difficult that at times it is not easy to keep the eyes of my heart looking to Jesus as I know I should – for without Him I can do nothing…At times Lord I feel that I am losing my way in life but I know that as I rest in You, I will hear the gentle promptings from Your Spirit saying, “this is the way – walk in it…”

Sometimes Lord, I confess that when things get tough I try in my own strength to sort out my own problems - and work out what I ought to do myself, without turning to You first… and inevitably I seem to make the wrong choice…I know that You have a plan for my life – and I also know that living in this world is not easy – but I also know that my sufficiency is in You and that Your strength is made perfect as I rest in You – help me to apply this truth in my life.

Guide me Lord through all the obstacles of life and help me with the many choices I have to make on a daily basis. May I truly learn to look to You as my Guide and Strength, in Jesus name I pray,

AMEN

Prayer For Purity Of Heart and Humility

Heavenly Father - the Lord Jesus Himself said that those that are pure in heart are truly blessed, but Lord I know that of myself I can never attain the standard of purity that You require. Lord, I know that only as I allow the Holy Spirit to live in me, work through me – to teach and train me will I come to that purity of heart that only comes from You – as You conform Your children into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus.

Lord for too long I have been smugly comparing myself advantageously with others around me, and believing that I was pure in Your eyes - but now that I have come to realise that the only standard to which You are comparing me is the Lord Jesus, I humbly kneel before You, at the foot of Your throne and ask your forgiveness for my self-indulgent pride and ego-centricity. May I look to Jesus and live as He lived in spirit and truth – seeking only to do Your will and to live a life that honour You.

Search my heart and purify my thoughts and may Your indwelling Holy Spirit identify any pride and self-importance that is lurking within, and conform me day by day into the likeness of the Lord Jesus – and help me to make the right choices in my life.. the choices that honour You, in Jesus name I pray,

Amenm You – as You conform Your children into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the ministry and witness of Paul and the many things we can learn from his dedicated attitude in sharing the truth of the Gospel. We praise and thank You for the assurance that we also have, that You are our Defence and our Defender. Thank You that Your grace is sufficient, no matter what difficulties or dangers we may encounter. May You be glorified in our lives and may we speak the word of truth boldly and in the power of God, by clothing ourselves with Christ and taking up the weapons of righteousness, wherever we may go – this we 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 and to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,”
