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 I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly 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 Jesus as Saviour. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that my life is hid with Christ in You. As I die to self and live for Christ, may my life reflect Your love, gentleness, compassion, and truth. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the blessed hope that is set before all those who trust in Christ Jesus as Saviour. Thank You that Christ is my life, and the day is coming when He will return to take me home to be with Him in heaven. O what a wonderful day that will be when, in my glorified body, I will see my Saviour face to face. Come quickly Lord Jesus! AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that my life is hid with Christ in God. Thank You that I am a new creation in Christ and have died to sin and been raised to life, together with Him, in heavenly places. Help me to live as unto the Lord, to lay aside all that is displeasing to You, and to set my mind on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
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 careless 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 You. In Jesus' name, 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 I might walk in spirit and truth, submitting 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. 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 was 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 would put on a heart of compassion and kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, so that Christ is all is all in my life. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that 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 man 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, thank You that You loved the world so much that You sent Your Son to be the propitiation for my sin. I pray that in all things I too may put on godly love... and become a conduit of Your love flowing out to others in the bond of unity and peace - to Your honour and glory.. 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.
I will sing to the Lord a holy song, for He is good and gracious and has lifted me up and arrayed me in His own righteousness, and His banner over me is love. Loving Father, to You be all praise and glory, my God and my Saviour. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, search my heart, I pray, and see if there is anything that is preventing me from living unto the Lord. May all I do in word and deed, be carried out in the name of Jesus and to His praise and glory. Keep my eyes looking to Him and my heart ready to do His will. 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. In Jesus' name, 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. Help me to be obedient to You in thought, word, and deed, and help me to be an example of a godly life in my own family and to those in the wider community with whom I come in contact. 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. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, it is too easy to coast along at work and try to get by doing the minimum for my employer. Please change my heart so that whatever job I find myself in, I will work at it wholeheartedly as if I was working for You. May I not seek to please men, but always to please You. I pray that my work ethic would be a witness to draw others to You, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, as I undertake the daily roles and responsibilities in my life, I pray that I will undertake everything willingly, enthusiastically, and to the best of my ability. I pray that in all I say and do, I may do it unto You and for Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that my eternal salvation is secure in Christ. Thank You that by faith in Him my sins have been forgiven - forever. I pray that I may live my life to Your praise and glory and that, whether at home or in the wider world, I may walk in humble obedience before You and do everything as unto the Lord. Thank You for Christ Who gave His life for me. I pray that in everything I say and do, I may live my life for Him, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for this truth, that You are no respecter of persons. Thank You that my salvation does not rely on what I do to please You, but on what Christ has done on my account. Thank You that I have received eternal life as a free gift of Your grace through faith, and I pray that I will live worthy of my calling and in a way that honours You. Help me to walk in humility of heart and in spirit and truth, irrespective of my circumstances, and enable me to carry out the work that You have given me to do, to Your honour and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
