Heavenly Father, thank You for the exemplary life of Gaius, and the many things that we can learn from the lives of other godly men and women, You place in our path. Thank You for the privilege of prayer.. so that we may approach Your throne of grace for help in time of sickness and need. We lift up all our brothers and sisters in Christ, body, soul and spirit – praying each would grow in grace, in all they say and do, and come to a deeper knowledge of the Lord Jesus – for Your greater praise and glory. 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.
