“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”
Heavenly Father, You are a good and gracious God, long-suffering and tender-hearted towards all Your children. Thank You for Your faithfulness towards Israel - Your chosen nation. Your never-failing promises to them is such a reassurance, for it demonstrates that Your gracious patience and loving-kindness towards me is equally sure - for You are the same yesterday, today and forever. Thank You that I am part of the body of Christ and that You have told us the end from the beginning, and thank You that all Your promises are 'Yes' and 'Amen' in Christ Jesus my Saviour. Teach me Your ways and keep me from straying from the path of holiness. I praise and thank You that in Christ, I have a cleansed heart, and that by Your amazing grace I have the indwelling Holy Spirit of life, to guide me into all truth - this I pray in Jesus name I pray. AMEN.
Source: Verse of the
day for Ezekiel 36:26
Loving Father, I know that You often halt us in our tracks and remove us from the business of life, through an illness or a time of ill-health - so that we are forced take our eyes off the hurly-burly of life, and lie on an enforced bed of sickness - in order to rediscover what are our true priorities are in life.
Father, I know that I have not spent quality time with You, as I have allowed the daily duties of life and less-important issues to crowd out my special time alone in Your presence.
Forgive me I pray. I want to use this time of ill-health as an opportunity to get closer to You. Lead me and guide me in this time of illness - and may it become a time of spiritual as well as a period of physical rest.
Heal me Father I pray, not only in my body but also in my relationship with You,
