Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word. Thank You for the lessons I can learn from the choices Adam and Eve made so long ago, when they chose to disobey Your Word. Thank You for the many insights into the devastating fall of man and the ease with which we can be deceived and tempted to sin against You - and forfeit Your many blessings. May I not only know the truth of Your word but trust You in all things, so that I will not be seduced by the lies of enemy nor enticed to follow the lusts of my own sinful heart. Thank You, Father, for Your wonderful plan of redemption and for sending Jesus, to be the last Adam and federal Head of a new creation through whom we are saved - by grace through faith. Thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Thank You that Christ was prepared to be bruised for our iniquity, by taking the punishment upon Himself that we deserve - we are forever thankful for Your grace and mercy, and glorify Your holy name forever, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, what a wake-up call to realise the severe consequences that sin has had on all our lives and relationships. I pray that I may give greater heed to the instructions given to men and women - husbands and wives.. and I pray that in Your grace, I would honour my own spouse, and live my life in a way that honours You - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You that in Your grace You designed Your perfect plan of salvation so that all who are born of Adam into the original creation that was cursed, may be born-again into Your new creation.. where death is defeated and fellowship with You is restored for all who believe in the death; burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ - the one and only sinless MAN Who willingly paid the price for my sin. Thank You for being willing to send You dearly beloved Son to be the propitiation for sin and thank You that Jesus was willing to die on my account so that death is swallowed up in victory and I am restored into fellowship with You  - praise Your holy name, AMEN.
