Heavenly Father, thank You for the lives of Abraham and Stephen, both of whom demonstrated an unshakable trust in Your Word and an exemplary faith, that Your plans and purposes are altogether sure. Thank You that Your promises are all 'yes' and 'amen' in Christ Jesus, my Lord. Give me an unshakable faith in Your Word, knowing that You are the only sure Rock upon which my faith is secure. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your amazing grace and for answering this inspired prayer of Stephen. Thank You for extending Your saving grace down 2000 years of time.. so that I too might believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved - in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, may I live in humility of heart and keep my ears and heart ever open to the leading, guiding, prompting, correcting and chastening work of Your Spirit with me, so that I may grow in grace and be increasingly conformed into the image of Jesus, day by day, AMEN
Heavenly Father, thank you for the godly witness of men like Stephen who was filled with the Holy Spirit and spent his life pointing people to Jesus as He preached the gospel among the people. Thank You for the many lessons we can learn from the bold witness of these early disciples, who were ready to stand fast on the gospel of truth and die for their faith. Thank You that Stephen saw Jesus standing at the right hand of the Father and that by grace through faith we are seated with Him in heavenly places. Open my eye more and more to see Jesus and to pray into Your will for my life - this I ask in His name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing testimony about Stephen, in the book of Acts, and the many lessons we can learn, both from his life and his death. I pray that like him, I may be steadfast in the work that You have given me to do. Help me to be faithful to preach the gospel truth and to stand firm on veracity of Your holy Word, without compromise. I pray that I may study to show myself approved under God, so that like Stephen, I may be faithful to the point of death. May I live my life and approach my death to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how I thank You for the beautiful example of Stephen whose love for Jesus was displayed in the life he lived and the death he died. Help me to live a life that is pleasing in Your sight. Fill me anew with Your Holy Spirit day by day, and use me in whatever way You will, to Your eternal praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus and the example of Stephen, whose mind was stayed on Christ and who was able to exhibit the peace of God in the midst of a vicious and evil generation. Help me to speak the truth in love, to walk in spirit and truth, and to trust in Your never-failing goodness and grace every moment of the day. To You be all praise and glory, world without end. In Jesus' name I pray, and for His greater glory, AMEN.
