Thank you for the creative Word-of-God, WHO not only spoke the worlds into being from nothing but died for me, so that I could live – so that I could have life - everlasting life and life more abundantly. Open the eyes of foolish men who arrogantly refuse to recognise the truth and acknowledge as their Creator God and gracious Saviour... and thank You for all Your never-failing goodness, long-suffering mercy and amazing grace towards ME, this I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, how we thank and praise You that despite our sin and stupidity, pride and rebellion.. You did not remove us from Your plans for humanity. Thank You that You purposed to send Your only begotten Son to become our representative Man and kinsman-Redeemer - Who identified with our humanity by taking upon Himself the form of a servant, and being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross - so that by His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection we might become the righteousness of God in Him. Thank You Father that all who believe in Him might be forgiven of their sins, restored into fellowship with You and become partakers of His divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of our sinful desire. To You be all praise and glory - in Jesus name we pray. AMEN.

“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word of truth and for giving me a clear understating of the Biblical foundation of the creation of the world, through a plain reading of Genesis. We pray for those that have been blinded to the truth by the enemy of our soul.. and pray that in Your goodness and grace, many will recognise the error of humanistic philosophies; liberal theology and false religious systems and be convicted of sin and righteousness and judgement so that together with us they may be saved by grace through faith in Christ - to His honour and glory, AMEN.
