Loving Father help me to understand the precious relationship I have with Christ and what it means to be in Christ and to be seated with Him in heavenly places. Help me to set my heart on the wonderful things that You have prepared for those that love You, and more and more may I be a reflection of Christ to all those I meet today, in His name, pray AMEN.
Loving Father, help me to keep the eyes of my heart on Jesus and the glorious eternal inheritance that You have reserved for me and all who have trusted You as Saviour, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father thank YOU that my life is hid with Christ in You, in His name I pray, AMEN.
Thank You Father for the blessed hope that is set before all those that trust in Christ Jesus as Saviour. Thank You that I am in Christ and He is in me and that the day is coming when He will return to take us home to be with Himself in heaven. Help me to set my mind on things above and not on earthly things and to live my life in a way that is pleasing to You, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Dear Lord God, I seek a true inner purity that only comes from You and I come to You, knowing that I stand unclean, impure and wretched before Your perfect throne of purity and truth. Lord I ask Your forgiveness for the way that I have not honoured You with my body – knowing that I have engaged in many impure acts and unchaste thoughts. I confess that I am unworthy to even kneel before Your perfect presence – and yet I now understand that Christ died to pay the price for all my sins and all my impurities. Thank You that by believing in Jesus, Who died to pay the price for all my sins, You have washed me clean from every dishonouring act. Thank You Father.
Help me Lord to flee fornication and all the accompanying evils that flow from illicit sexual relationships and unclean thoughts – knowing that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, Who dwells in me and lives within my heart. Help me to keep my outward actions and inner thoughts pure before Your eyes – whether I am in the public view or hid in a secret place, and away from the gaze of the world’s eye.
Purify the eyes of my heart and help me to keep the focus of my mind on the Lord Jesus - and develop in me I pray, thoughts, words, deeds and motives that are pure in Your sight and that will honour Your Holy name, in Jesus name I pray,
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am no longer under Your wrath, but by faith have become Your child, and a member of Christ's body. Thank You that He died for my sin and rose again, breaking the power of sin and death in my life, and clothing me in His own righteousness. I pray that I may not be enticed by the things of this world that entrap the sons of disobedience... and pray that Your Holy Spirit would convict many lost souls today, of their need of salvation, by faith in Christ. This I ask in His precious name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how clearly Paul shows us the shocking way that words that come from our lips can be so dishonouring to You and abusive to others. I pray that the words I speak and the meditation of my heart may be honouring to Your holy name; give encouragement to others and always be spoken in love - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I know that there are many times when the words I have uttered have dishonoured Your name. Forgive me for the times that I have lied, been carless in my speech, engaged in any form of double-talk or massaged the truth for my own personal gain. I pray that from this day forward the thoughts that develop in my mind would immediately be taken captive to You, so that the words that proceed from my mouth would honour Your name, and bring glory to our Saviour, Jesus Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am a new creation in Christ. Thank You that old things are done away with and all things have been made new in Him. I pray that in Him I might walk in spirit and truth and submit to the working of the Holy Spirit, so that day by day I come to know You more and love You better - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the truth of Your word. Thank You that old things have passed away and all things have become new in Christ. Thank You that I have been transferred from the kingdom of Satan into the kingdom of Your dear Son - by faith in Him. Thank You that the old, cursed creation has been replaced by a new, perfect creation in Christ and that by faith in Him I have been transferred from the old creation to the new, and am being renewed daily - spirit, soul and body, until I stand face to face with Jesus - my Rock and my Redeemer. May I live my new life in spirit and truth to Your praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that even though I was dead in trespasses and sins and at enmity with You, I have been called by You and chosen to be a child of God and a joint-heir with Christ. Thank You that I am washed in the blood of the Lamb.. by grace through faith in Him and have been made a new creation in Christ and eternally positioned in Him - to Your praise and glory. Thank You that I have been set apart for His glory and I pray that in Him I may put on a heart of compassion and kindness - humility, gentleness and patience, so that Christ is all is all in my life, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that in Christ Jesus, I have been forgiven of all my sins and declared to be righteous, by faith in Your dearly beloved Son. I have not always been ready to forgive those that have hurt or injured me, but thank You for freely forgiving me of my sin unconditionally, and forever. May I increasingly show forbearance and forgiveness towards my fellow men, and readily pardon all who have hurt or harmed me. Develop in me a spirit of gentleness, that shows the love of Christ to all with whom I come in contact, and may my life become a reflection of the beautiful love of Christ, Who died so that all who believe in Him might live - praise Your holy name for all Your goodness and grace towards the children of men, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, I pray that the peace of God may rule in my heart with thanksgiving and praise, and if there is anything in my life that is preventing Your peace from guarding my heart today, I pray that You would show me. May I honour You in all I say and do and I pray that I may grow more like the Lord Jesus in my dealings with my brothers and sisters in Christ, so that Your peace may guard my heart and the peace of Christ may flow through me to others - This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, search my heart I pray and see if there is anything that is preventing me from living unto the Lord.

Thank You Father that I am called by His name. Thank You that You who started a good work in me will complete it in the day of Christ Jesus - to You be all honour and praise, thanksgiving and worship, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for ordaining that we are placed in families, and for guiding us in the biblical roles and responsibilities we have towards one another.

Thank You for my own parents and thank You that I am Your child. May I live and work to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a lot there is to assimilate and implement in Paul's simple instruction, for father's not to exasperate their children so they will not lose heart. Forgive us for the way we have allowed biblical principles and godly practice to be gradually removed from our homes and Christian churches. Help us individually and corporately to return to the truth of Your word, so that children will understand the need to obey and respect their parents... as parents bring up their children in the fear and nurture of the Lord - through wise discipline; gracious encouragement and godly respect. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, there are many social injustices in the world for which we grieve in our heart. Help us to share the good news of the gospel of grace to those that are dead in their sins and may the fruit of our labour help to address issues of social injustices. Hasten the time of Your return, we pray – when the earth will be filled with the glory of God, as the waters cover the sea. AMEN.
