Heavenly Father, thank You for the 'rest' we already have, by faith in Christ Jesus and for the full and final Sabbath-Rest that will one day be ours, when Christ finally defeats every evil principality and power. Thank You that the earthly kingdom, which was lost through sin, will be handed back to You, and Your redemptive plan will be completed. Keep me looking to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith - the Beginning and the End of Your creative work - thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Loving Father thank you that Christ Jesus is my rest. Sometimes I forget that resting in Him is simply appropriating Your Word by faith and accepting your precious promises by faith. I pray that day by day I may rest in You, by trusting my life into Your hands and trusting Your word of truth in my life, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus is my rest. I pray that I may learn to abide in Him moment by moment.. to rest in Him each and every day, to submit to His leading and guiding - to depend utterly upon Him from this day forward - to Your praise and glory, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, for the living, powerful Word of God. I pray that whatever it takes.. Your Holy Spirit would continue to convict, convert, comfort and conform me into the image of the lovely Lord Jesus, so that I become the person You want me to be. May I never hinder the work of Your Holy Spirit within, as He continues to divide my born-again spirit from my sin-sick soul. Root out all that is not of Christ and use me, I pray, as a conduit through Whom You can flow, unhindered, into the lives of those around me. Thank You that You loved us so much that You purposed to change all who believe, into the image and likeness of Christ Jesus, my Lord, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Loving heavenly Father, Your plans and purposes for me are staggering. I can scarcely take in that God Himself should come as my Saviour and High Priest, so that I can approach You on Your great and gracious throne of grace. Keep me ever mindful of this amazing privilege. Open my ears to hear Your voice and cleanse my heart to pray into Your will. Have grace on my brothers and sisters in Christ, and have mercy for a lost and dying world, which needs to acknowledge Jesus as 'kinsman-redeemer'. Hear and answer my prayer, I ask, in the name of Jesus Christ Your only begotten Son, and my great high heavenly priest, AMEN.
Thank You Lord Jesus for coming to earth to live and die as a man so that You understand all the trials and troubles that all Your children face in this world of sin. Thank You that I can bring all my cares to You, knowing that You understand everything that I am facing – thank You for being my Saviour, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, for the grace and mercy that streams from Your throne of grace to me through Jesus Christ, my great High Priest and heavenly Saviour. I praise and thank You for the goodness and grace You have extended to me. Were I to spend the rest of my days in grateful thanks and reverential praise I could not express my love for You. Thank You, in Christ’s name I pray, AMEN.
