Choose Verse

Heavenly Father, how easy it is for us to try to justify ourselves in Your sight through works of the law rather than accepting our salvation as a free gift of Your amazing grace. Keep me low at the cross and broken before You.. for I know that there are no works of the Law that can justify me in Your sight but simply expose a lack of understanding of Your perfect plan of redemption - where Christ became our sacrifice for sin so that by faith in Him alone, we might be forgiven of sin and live with You forever - Thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, I never cease to wonder and be amazed at the grace that You have extended to me and all who have been redeemed by faith in Jesus Christ. It is a thing most wonderful - almost to wonderful to believe, that God's own Son should come from heavenly glory and die to save a sinner like me - and yet it is in Your Word, which is faithful and true and I thank You with all of my being, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You for what Christ did for me on Calvary's cross. Thank You that by faith in Him I have been born into Your family and am no longer a slave to sin but a born-again son of God. Thank You for the many precious promises that I have received through identification with Christ my Saviour - thank You that I am not longer a slave.. but a son and heir.. through Christ. And thank you for the many privileges and promises that are mine in Christ. I pray that I may live as a dutiful son - doing only those things that are honouring to You, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

 Heavenly Father, thank You that You have made salvation so simple. Thank You that we are not only justified by faith through the power of the Spirit.. but we are to live by faith through the power of the Spirit... to walk by faith through the power of the Spirit - to grow in grace by faith through the power of the Spirit - and to become spiritually mature in the faith and sanctified - by grace through faith.. in the power of the Spirit. Thank You that neither my justification nor my sanctification depends on what I do or do not do .. but on what Christ did on the cross and what Christ is doing in my life today - so that it is not I that live but Christ that lives in me. AMEN.

Healing For My Long Time Illness

Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for being with me through all the ups and downs of my life and for the many blessings that You have given me for which I praise and thank You.

Lord – You know the illness that I have been struggling with for a long time now and that there is little that seems to be able to be done by the medical profession - but Lord I believe that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and that You know every part of my body - and You know exactly why I have been ill for so long. Lord, I come to You now asking that You would work a full recovery in my body – whatever is causing this persistent problem - and I pray that You would, in Your mercy give me back the health and strength I need…

Lord if there is anything that is lacking in my diet or anything that is causing this ongoing problem within my body – I pray that You would show me so that it may be finally dealt with – Restore again my health and strength I pray and guide me along the path that You have planned for me, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen
“Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first.”

May I live my life to Your praise and glory by grace through faith and not of works of the flesh.. in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You that by grace through faith.. sin no longer has power over me.. and I am no longer under the condemnation of the Law.

Keep me from becoming ensnared under the curse of legalism.. and may I live my new life in Christ to Your praise and glory in His name I pray, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You for this peep into Isaiah's amazing prophecy that spoke of Sarah, that barren and desolate woman, who was unable to conceive after the flesh. Thank You that Paul opened up this amazing scripture to us, and showed that she corresponds to the New Covenant.. the heavenly Jerusalem and the rejoicing mother of all Your spiritual children - who have been saved by grace, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You for the forgiveness of my sins and life everlasting. Thank You that I am part of that great congregation, who have an inheritance in the New Jerusalem. May I live a life that is worthy of my calling - to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the beautiful, real-life story of Abraham, and the allegory, that Paul used to demonstrate the freedom we have in Christ by faith.. and the bondage we retain, when we seek to live our Christian life according to the works of the flesh - or by following the Law. Thank You that in Christ I am a child of the promise.. having been supernaturally born again by the Spirit. May I jealously guard my freedom in Christ and not be enticed into the legalistic practices that place us back under bondage to the Law - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.”
(Galatians 4:28)

Heavenly Father, what a blessing it is to know that we are not under bondage to sin, Satan and the Law but by grace through faith in Christ we have been set free. Thank You that I am a citizen of heaven.. and connected with the Jerusalem above - thank You in Jesus name, AMEN

“So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.”
