Dear heavenly Father, thank You that You are our God and Shepherd, our Provider and our Sanctifier. Thank You that You are the Lord of Hosts. Who made heaven and earth by the power of Your mighty hand, and that You chose me to be Your child and a member of Christ's mystic body. Thank You for the lessons we learn through the life and times of David... whom You chose to be Israel's greatest king and the under-shepherd of Your people. Thank You that You can use anyone whose heart is right before You. Cleanse my heart and use me I pray in the furtherance of Your kingdom and help me to listen to Your voice and obey Your word - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Your promises are true and never fail. Thank You that Jesus is coming back, after the "Time of Jacob’s Trouble" to claim His rightful position as King of Israel, Prince of Peace and Lord of heaven and earth. Thank You that by faith in Him I have been redeemed from the pit and am seated together with Christ in heavenly places. We pray for Your people Israel, that many would come to faith in Christ as Messiah and call on the name of the Lord Jesus for their salvation - this we pray in Jesus name, AMEN.
Father, we bow in reverence before You, and praise You in hushed whispers, because You have stooped down to the children of men and lifted us up and seated us together with Christ, in heavenly places. We are not worthy to gather the crumbs under Your table for You are great and Your glory reaches into the extremity of the universe, and yet in love You sought us and made us accepted in the Beloved. Thank You Father, in Jesus' name. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, the promise you gave to David, that there would always be a Man to sit on his throne, is indeed, wonderful - but there is no more a wonderful and glorious truth, than to know that You loved me so much that you sent Jesus, to pay for the price of my sin.. and that by His resurrection, He broke the power of sin in my life - and caused me to be called a son of God, and a joint-heir with Christ - for which I will continue to be eternally grateful. May all I say and do be to the honour of Your name, for You alone are worthy - thank You Father, in Jesus name, AMEN.
