Heavenly Father, thank You for the exemplary life of Gaius and this precious blessing written to Him. Thank You that You call me beloved and for all the blessings You pour into my life. I pray that my soul would prosper with the riches of knowing You. I pray that, day by day, I would come to a deeper knowledge of the Lord Jesus as He increases in my life, and I decrease. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Lord Jesus, I am so excited that my graduation ceremony is here and I want to place the whole day in Your hands and ask that You draw very close to me. Give me that perfect peace as well as an excited joy throughout the whole ceremony.
Thank You, Lord, for giving me this marvellous opportunity to study, to achieve my education goals and gain valuable life experience, which I pray will equip me in the days that lie ahead.
Thank You for granting me the focus and direction to complete my course of study successfully, and I ask that You would give me the determination to step out into life, trusting my future into Your hands, knowing that Your plan for my life is the very best path that I should take.
Lord, I feel that this day is the first day of my entire future and I want You to take the central place in my life. I give You my grateful thanks for always being there for me throughout my life up to this point, and ask that You would lead and guide me in the days that lie ahead. In Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, thank You for the witness of godly men like the apostle John, and examples of spirituality like Gaius, who walked in sincerity and truth as led by the Spirit of God. I pray that I may follow in their footsteps and do only those things that are righteous in Your eyes. Help me to eschew evil, and keep me from being influenced by the ungodly practices of the world. I pray that I may reflect the beauty and goodness of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, so that His name may be glorified through my life. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
