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.
