Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word, which teaches the truth. Help me to read the Scriptures with a teachable spirit, and prevent me from being manipulated into any incorrect interpretation, by false teachings or unbiblical doctrines, that cause me to lose the peace of God in my heart - which Jesus has promised to all who trust in Him. I pray, as we face increasingly difficult times, that I will patiently endure the trials and tribulations I may be called upon to face. Help me to stand fast in the faith, to pray without ceasing and in everything to give You thanks and praise - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the words of encouragement that are found in Your word. Lord there are times that I consider that the bad things that happen to me are because You are angry with me.. and yet I come to understand that just as Christ suffered for righteousness sake, I too am identified with Him, in His suffering, during my sojourn on earth. Help me to see more clearly that by patiently enduring the suffering, is honouring to Your name, and helps to equip me for my role in the coming kingdom of God. Give me the mind of Christ, I pray, and teach me to endure suffering with patience and humility - until that glorious day when You come in the clouds to take us to be with Yourself, forever. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for these reassuring words of comfort from Paul, knowing that the ungodly, who oppress Your children unjustly, will one day be punished.. and that a day of rest and rewards is planned for all who live godly in Christ Jesus, and suffer persecution for righteousness sake. I pray that I may exhibit faith and patient endurance in the difficulties that I face, for Your greater glory... and when reviled by evil men, I pray that I may demonstrate the same God-given grace, the Lord Jesus Christ showed, when He was despised and rejected by men. Thank You that You are a righteous God, and I pray that I am able to rejoice in all my suffering, and to learn the lessons of patience and faith, that You desire to teach me, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You do not hide the shocking consequences of unbelief. Lord, there are many, under Your condemnation that face eternal destruction. We pray that You would open their eyes to the glorious gospel of grace, while it is still today. Have mercy, we pray, on all who have not trusted in the name of the only begotten son of God - in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father I thank You that Your perfect plans and purposes can never be frustrated and that You are working quietly in the background in order that Your divine will continues to progress towards its ultimate goal, as year succeeds to year.
I praise You that You have given me life and made me a new creation in Christ and thank You Father, that You have a special purpose for my life too. Thank You that by Your grace You are carrying out Your purposes in the lives of all Your children - that Christ is all and in all and I pray that this may be realized in my life too.
Enable and equip me I pray, to fulfill the plan and purpose that you have for me to do and I ask that You would use each gift and every talent that You have graciously given to me, to Your praise and glory.
Help me to fulfill all that You would have me do in my life and may I be obedient to Your voice as I seek to carry out Your purpose for my life. May I rejoice evermore and pray without ceasing.
May I give thanks in all things and hearken to the voice of Your Holy Spirit and may I hold fast to that which is good and abstain from all forms of evil – knowing that this is Your will for my life.. in Jesus name I pray,
Heavenly Father, I pray that in all I say and do that the name of the Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in me and I in Him. Thank You that You have given all Your children everything we need for life and godliness. I pray that I may not shrink back when difficulties and dangers arise but trust You in all things and live a life that is worthy of my calling as a child of God and a citizen of heaven – this I ask in Jesus’ name, so that the name of the Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in me and I in Him, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your word and the truths that it contains. Open my understanding as I watch for the any day return of Christ, to take us to be with Himself. Thank You that members of Your body are not appointed to wrath, and thank You that You are using Your people to hold back the flood of evil, through the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit. We pray that before Your judgement is finally poured out on a Christ-rejecting world, and the unrestrained evil, which will soon saturate the entire earth, that many would come to faith in Christ - before that great and terrible day of the Lord. We ask this in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the ministry and teachings of the apostle Paul and for this comforting passage of Scripture which reminds us that lawlessness will continue to be restrained by the power of the Holy Spirit, as God's plans and purposes are forwarded through the prayers and praise of the body of Christ. May the prayer of the righteous be effective and powerful and continue to restrain the spread of lawlessness throughout the world. Thank You that the day is coming when Satan; sin; death and hell will be thrown into the lake of fire and righteousness will be established forever. May we worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness and work the works of God in every area of our lives as we walk in spirit and truth for His greater glory - this we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Thank You Lord for loving me so much that You sent Your only begotten Son to die on my behalf on a cruel cross and take upon Himself my sins. Thank You that He identified with my sinfulness so that I might be identified with His righteousness, by grace through faith in Christ. How grateful I am that while I was still a lost sinner Christ died for me.
How thankful I am Lord that You searched me out and found me and brought me back into Your family, even though I was dead in my sins and at enmity with You. Praise Your holy name, for You are a good God and Your loving-kindness endures forever and I will be eternally grateful that You are my God and I am Your child.
Thank You that You are my helper and healer. Thank You that You are my refuge and strength and thank You that You have surrounded me with people who love me dearly.. and whom I love too. Lord I do not deserve any of Your grace and goodness and yet day by day You pour new and rich mercies into my lap and cover me with Your blessings. Praise God that You are the Rock of my Salvation,
Thank You Father for the Lord Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit in my life today. Thank You that You loved us so much that You sent Him to be the propitiation for my sins and that through Him I have received eternal comfort and a good hope - by grace through faith in Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Thank You Father for Your never-failing comfort and gracious encouragement which is new every morning. I pray that I too may be strengthened and establish in every good work and word, to You praise and glory - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Dear heavenly Father, thank You for Your promise of faithfulness to establish and protect me, even when I prove faithless and false to You. Keep me ever mindful of this truth and guide me in the choices I will make today. Use me as an instrument of Your grace; keep me from all evil and may I grow in grace and in a knowledge of You, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your word and the wise instructions and important warnings it contains. I pray that I may be steadfast and immovable in my faith.. always abounding in the work of the Lord and knowing that everything I do for His name’s sake is never wasted, but will continue to prepare me for the work that You have given me to do – until Christ comes for His church. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Your love has no beginning and no end and that there is no reserve in that love for Your children. May You direct the hearts of all Your people into the love of God and the steadfastness of Christ.. so that we may be a reflection of Him in all we say and do - this we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how important it is to be established in the truth and I recognise that there are many times in my life when I have been adversely influenced by gossips or busy-bodies. Help me to be disciplined in my Christian life and to refuse to engage in idle chatter, which can be so destructive in a Church community and so quickly tarnishes the witness of those engaged in it. I pray that I may labour ceaselessly in sharing the good news of the gospel of Christ, in word and in deed and I pray that I may live an honourable and fruitful life for Your greater praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the Word of truth and the encouragement and instructions that enable us to live godly lives, as we press towards the goal of our calling. I pray that I may not grow weary of doing the right thing - and ask that I may be empowered by Your Spirit, to walk in spirit and truth, unto my life's end - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
We praise You with all our hearts for Your indwelling Spirit of Peace. May we shed abroad Your peace in our lives to a hurting world that has so lost its direction in the world’s vain pursuit of a pseudo-peace that can never satisfy, in Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
