Heavenly Father, I praise and thank You for this little Epistle of second John, which reminds us of the importance of walking in the truth of God's holy Word and fulfilling His command to love one another in the same way that Christ loved us and gave Himself for us. May I continue to walk in truth and love, just as Christ commanded us, and may my life be a living testimony of Your goodness and grace for Your name's sake and for Your greater glory.

Praying through 2 John 1:5

Heavenly Father, thank You that You loved us so much that You sent Jesus to die for the sin of the world. How I praise and thank You that He was willing to stretch out His arms of love, on the Cross, for my sake so that by faith in Him I might not perish but have everlasting life. Help me to live by faith and to walk in love, and enable me to love others as You have loved me. Help me to always speak the truth in love with gentleness and respect. May my loving conduct bring glory to You, bring edification to my brothers and sisters in Christ, and bring many to a saving understanding of Jesus. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

Praying through 2 John 1:8

Heavenly Father, thank You that I am secure in You, that nothing can separate me from Your love, and once I am saved, I cannot lose my salvation. However, I know that living and walking in the flesh can result in a loss of rewards and so I pray that You would help me walk in spirit and truth, to Your praise and glory, and receive a full reward at the Bema Seat. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.”
