Heavenly Father, as I read through this thrilling episode, in the pre-salvation life of Paul, who was Your chosen vessel to bring the good news of the gospel of grace, through others to me - I thank You for arresting this man, on that road to Damascus, and commissioning him to preach the Word of life. Thank You for his epistles, and the many truths that they contain. Help me to live as You would have me to live, and use me as a vessel to share the gospel of Christ, with whomsoever You will. May I be bold to share this good news of salvation with others, knowing that the time is short... and that soon, and very soon, we will be taken to be with You in heaven - thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.
Loving Father, open my eyes to see more of the Lord Jesus as did the apostle Paul, and I pray that all I do may be to Your glory and not what I perceive to be Your will or founded on the traditions of man, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Saul of Tarsus who was a man who recognised Who Christ truly was. I pray that if I have any false perceptions of Who You are, or if I am going down the path of religiosity or self-righteousness that You would identify my faults and bring me to a more intimate understanding of Who You are.. so that I may worship You in spirit and in truth - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that I may know Christ and the power of His resurrected life working in me, and I pray that You would give me the grace to participate in the fellowship of His suffering, knowing that in this world I will face trials and tribulations, dangers and maybe death - for His name's sake. Thank You that the sufferings of this world are but for a moment and that by Your grace, You have promised to perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish me in Christ Jesus my Saviour - to Whom be all praise and glory - AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the ministry of the apostle Paul and the many truths You saw fit to reveal to us through his ministry. May I like Paul have a receptive heart and a deep desire to pray fervently, preach enthusiastically and proclaiming 'JESUS' as the Jewish Messiah; the Saviour of the whole world, the Son of Man and Son of God - and the sacrifice for sin, Who takes away the sin of the world, and in Whose name pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, it is my desire to do Your perfect will and submit my life to serving you in spirit and in truth. Forgive me for the times when I have tried to work the works of God in my own strength instead of trusting Your word and allowing myself to be guided by the Holy Spirit. I pray that you would build up Your Church in the fear of the Lord and with reverence for Your holy name and that we would know the comfort and strength of the Holy Spirit in our lives, as we grow in grace and mature in the faith for Your greater glory and worth, in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
