Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are my God and Shepherd, my Provider and my 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 in the furtherance of Your kingdom. 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. And thank You that by faith in Him, I have been redeemed from the pit. I 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. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Father, I bow in reverence before You and praise You in hushed whispers because You have stooped down to the children of men, lifted us up, and seated us, together with Christ, in heavenly places. I am 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 me and made me 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 the most wonderful and glorious truth is this; 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. Lord, for this 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.
