Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of Paul who turned from being a proud Pharisee and the worst of sinners into a devoted bond-servant and faithful apostle of Christ. I pray that I may be ever open to the inner promptings of the Holy Spirit and that You would use me as a witness of the truth, in whatever way You choose. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word. Thank You for the ministry of Paul and the lessons we can learn from his life and ministry. Give me an understanding heart that is willing to learn and prevent me from holding fast to any opinions or belief systems that are counter to the truth of the gospel. Give me a teachable spirit I pray, and may I be used in the furtherance of the gospel in whatever way You choose - for Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what an amazing testimony we have in Saul the persecutor who became Paul the humble apostle and was used by You for Your greater praise and glory. Thank You that You are ready and willing to use all who have been sanctified by faith in the death and Resurrection of Christ and that no sin is too great that cannot be forgiven - except the sin of unbelief. Just as You used Paul in the furtherance of Your kingdom, I pray that You would use me in whatever way You will. Take my life I pray, and let it be consecrated to You through time and into eternity. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Jesus to be our kinsman Redeemer, and that by faith I am part of His body. Help me to live according to Your will and not to find myself in opposition to Your plans and purposes, by following my own logic or desires. Help me to become a wise student of Scripture and carry out Your purposes for my life, so I may be a testimony to the truth. And I pray that I may learn to reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for opening my eyes to the truth of the gospel of grace and for bringing me into the family of God. Thank You that I have been forgiven of my sin and am among those who have been sanctified by faith in Christ. Lord, there are many whose eyes are blinded to the truth and who remain trapped in the dominion of Satan. I pray that the eyes of their heart would be opened to receive the truth of the gospel. Thank You for the life and witness of Paul, and I pray that You would use me as a light in this darkened world and a witness to the truth of the gospel of Jesus, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
