Praying through Genesis 5:1

Heavenly Father, thank You for the Bible and the wonderful story of redemption which traces the lineage of my Saviour, Jesus Christ, through the generations from Adam, Seth, Noah, Abraham, and Israel. Thank You that You chose to make man in Your own image, and despite sin and its terrible consequences, You determined to save us from our sins, by grace through faith in Christ Jesus. He is our Kinsman-Redeemer through Adam, and He is our eternal God and Saviour Who alone is to be worshipped and glorified. To Him be all praise and glory, world without end, AMEN.

“This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;”
(Genesis 5:1)

Praying through Genesis 5:3

Heavenly Father, thank You that You did not terminate the race of man because of sin. Even though Adam sinned and death passed onto all men, making us all sinners, You chose to redeem Your fallen race through the Person and work of Christ. Thank You that through the lineage of Adam, Seth, Noah, Abraham, Israel, and David, came the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God and perfect Son of Man Who died and rose again so that all who believe on Him would be redeemed. Thank You that the day that is coming when You will put all wrongs to right and the earth will be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. In the meantime, I pray that I may be increasingly transformed into the image and likeness of Christ Jesus my Lord, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.

“And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth:”

Praying through Genesis 5:24

Thank You, Father, for the example of godly men who maintained a trusting, prayerful communion with You, like Enoch who trusted in You and walked by faith for the rest of his life. Thank You that You are the same, yesterday, today, and forever, and I pray that I may keep the eyes of my heart fixed on Jesus and that my daily walk may be pleasing to You. Help me to live as You would have me to live and to glorify my Father in heaven. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.”
(Genesis 5:24)
