Father, You are our God of hope and love. Thank You for sending Your only begotten Son into the world, so that sinful man might be forgiven of their sins and be given peace with God, through the sacrifice of the precious life of Christ Jesus.
Thank You for the joy and hope that this time of Advent brings into the hearts of all those who trust in Jesus. Thank You for the good news of the gospel of Christ that brings man back into sweet fellowship with their Creator, and for the perfect peace and glorious hope that He has placed into the hearts of all who trust on His name.
Thank You, Lord, that Jesus is coming again to set up His eternal kingdom on earth as You have promised, and that we who are members of His body will rule and reign with Him for 1000 years.
Thank You, for the hope and love and peace that You gave to mankind in the Person of our Lord Jesus Christ. To Him be all the praise and glory at this special time of Advent and throughout the coming year. In Jesus' name,
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.Source: Verse of the day for Colossians 3:15
