Heavenly Father, thank You that in Your grace and mercy, You used bond- servants, apostles, and prophets such as Simon Peter to reveal Yourself, Your plans, and Your purposes to someone such as me through Your Word of truth. Thank You that I have obtained the same precious faith by believing in Jesus as my Saviour. Open my understanding to all that You would teach me in Your Word and use me to encourage others in their Christian walk. Help me, I pray, to earnestly contend for the faith once offered to the saints. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your grace and mercy, Your comfort and peace, and that You have given me all that is needful for life and godliness through the knowledge of Jesus. Thank You for the riches of Your grace and peace which continue to be multiplied with every passing day as I come to a deeper knowledge of You. May Your name be glorified in my heart and in my life, to Your honour and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, How I praise and thank You that I have been called out of darkness into Your glorious light. By Your divine power I have been called, chosen, redeemed, accepted, and equipped to live the godly life that You desire of me. I have been imputed with Christ’s righteousness, in-dwelt by the Holy Spirit, identified with all His goodness and grace, and accepted by the Father, in the Beloved. May I live a life that is worthy of my high calling and in everything give You all honour and praise. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that by Your grace through faith in Christ, I have become a partaker of His divine nature. Thank You that when I first believed, I was positioned in Christ in heavenly places, having escaped the corruption of the world and being covered with His righteousness. Thank You for the Word of truth and the many precious promises it contains for me and all believers. May Your will for my life may be carried out to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I am so blessed to be saved by grace through faith in Christ. I desire to live godly in Christ Jesus, to grow in grace, and to produce spiritual fruit that is honouring to You. Help me to be diligent and disciplined in my Christian walk, not relying on my own abilities and excellence, but trusting in You and the power of the Holy Spirit. I pray that in His power, I may become the person You desire me to be. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that as I grow in grace and increasingly develop in my spiritual walk, I will realise more clearly how precious to You it is to live my life with these attributes. I pray I would become more self-controlled in every area of my life. May I develop patience, knowing that You are enabling me to grow more like Christ so that eventually I may be fully conformed into His likeness as His Godliness shines through me. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that while I was a condemned sinner and dead in trespasses and sins - Christ died for me. I thank You that by faith I have been born again into Your family and become Your child. May I grow in grace and manifest all the Christ-like characteristics that You desire of all Your children. Help me to love and reverence You as You deserve - and enable me, I pray, to add to that godliness, brotherly kindness, and give me the grace to progress from brotherly kindness to the godly love which is ours in Christ Jesus our Lord, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that You would increase in me a desire to know You more, to love You better, and to live my life as You have ordained. I pray that my life may be rooted and grounded in Christ, that I will be useful to You, and fruitful in all I say and do. I pray that You may be glorified in my life and that my life may remain hidden with Christ in God. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that in Christ I have all that I need for life and godliness. I pray that You would help me to keep the eyes of my heart looking away from the things of this world and firmly looking to Jesus so that I may not become spiritually short-sighted and forget all that Christ has done for me - but become fruitful in the knowledge of my Saviour Jesus Christ - to His praise and glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that there is nothing I can do to be saved but believe on the finished work of Christ on the Cross. Thank You that once I am saved, I cannot be plucked out of Your hand but I can live a life in a manner that honours You and shows spiritual fruit. I pray that as I walk in faith, the truth of my salvation becomes the greatest reality in my life as, day by day, Christ is being formed in me. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You for bringing me into the eternal kingdom of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, by grace through simple faith in Him. I pray that I may live a life that reflects His beautiful attributes as I wait with eagerness for that day when I enter Your kingdom in heaven. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, establish me I pray in Your Word and the truth that it contains.. I pray that in Christ I may grow in grace and in a knowledge of Him. I pray that I may be diligent to add virtue to my faith and supplement it with moral character; perseverance; godliness; kindliness and brotherly love - to Your praise and glory. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, as I read through Your Word, I praise and thank You for the wonderful truths that it contains. Thank You for the many reminders of who we are in Christ, the conduct that should be ours, and the character that should develop in each one of us, as we live out our lives in this temporary body. Stir up my remembrance of all that Jesus is to me and give me the grace to show forth the love of Christ in word and in deed, to all those I may meet. Use me to bring to their remembrance the wonders of Your name, so that Christ may be glorified in all things, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a beautiful encouragement to see the lovely way that Peter grew in his knowledge and understanding of You and that we enjoy the same precious promises, which are all 'yes' and 'amen,' in Christ. May I be diligent to develop a strong Christian character, moral excellence, spiritual wisdom, sound doctrine, and self-control, as I also stand firm on the gospel of grace. May I also be ready to meet You... knowing that Christ's return for His Church is imminent. Thank You that I am not only identified with Christ in His death, for the forgiveness of sin, but also with His resurrection, and life everlasting. Thank You in Jesus' name AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing letters of Peter which teach, train, and guide us into all truth. May I engender in my heart a similar passion for my risen Saviour that is demonstrated in the letters that Peter wrote. May I diligently endeavour to tell others, whom You place in my path, the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ so that after my departure from this world, they too might be able to call to mind the wonderful things of God. I ask this for Your greater praise and glory and in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that the Lord Jesus set aside the glory and majesty He had with You from all eternity, to come to earth to be my perfect sacrifice for sin by dying on the Cross. Thank You that He rose again on the third day so that I too may have life immortal, by faith in Him. Thank You that so much of the Bible was written by men who were eyewitnesses of His majesty. I look forward to that glorious day when I too will see Him, face to face. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for this precious glimpse into the glorious majesty that clothes our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, that Peter witnessed at the Transfiguration. Thank You that today, Jesus is acting as heavenly High Priest on behalf of the Church, who are His Body, and that He is returning to earth as King of Israel and Governor of the world. Thank You that He fulfilled His earthly role as our Kinsman-Redeemer so that all who trust on Him will not perish but have everlasting life. Praise His holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that the Lord Jesus laid aside His heavenly majesty to come to earth as the substitute for my sin and for the sin of the entire world. Thank You that we have Peter's eyewitness account of Jesus' glorious Transfiguration on the holy mount. What a moment it must have been for Peter, James, and John to behold Jesus' glory, to hear the Father presenting His beloved Son to the world, and to glimpse His eternal glory. May I never lose a sense of the magnificence of Jesus, nor minimise the enormous sacrifice He made for me by setting aside His glory to come to earth and die on a Cross for my sin. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the more sure Word of prophecy. Thank You for telling us what would happen before it happens, so we would believe. Thank You that Your Word is a light to my path, shining light in the dark places of this life. May I stand firm of Your Word of truth until that day dawns when Jesus comes to take us to be with Him forever. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Loving Father, thank You for Your Word, that breathes life and power into my heart. As I read Your Word, I pray that You would lead and guide me into all truth. Teach and train me in right thinking, protect me from error and keep me ever humble in Your sight. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that by Your grace and love, You gave us the inspired Scriptures through Your chosen apostles and prophets and that they were faithful in writing what the Holy Spirit moved them to write. What a blessing to read that You are my Father in heaven and that Your beloved Son came to earth to be my Saviour. Thank You for all the fulfilled prophecies in the Bible, and all the prophecies yet to be fulfilled. May I always hunger and thirst for Your Word as it is light, truth, and life to me. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
