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 that Your Holy Spirit uses it in me 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 and be used by You as a conduit through Whom You can flow, unhindered, into the lives of those around me, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Father Your plans and purposes for me are staggering. I can scarce take in that You Yourself 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, for my brothers and sisters in need, and for a lost and dying world who needs a ' kinsman redeemer'. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ Your only begotten Son, and my great high heavenly priest, AMEN.
Dear Lord, how I thank You for Your grace towards me for you have lifted me up out of the pit that my life was in and set my feet on the rock of my Salvation, which is Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour. Thank You for freeing me from the shame and sin of my addiction, which has robbed me of so many of years of my life and caused me to lose not only my home but many of my friends and family as well.
Lord Jesus there are those that would seek to entice me back into the shadow from which I escaped and are trying to almost blackmail me into returning back to my life of crime and debauchery – but I have been set free and I do not want to return – keep me from temptation on those occasions when I feel alone and protect me from the pressures that I have been put under on certain occasions to return.
Lord I know that ALL my past sins have been forgiven and that I am clothed in the righteousness of Christ Jesus – keep me walking in the path of holiness and protect me from those that are still slaves to their addictions – I pray Lord that You will rescue those of my friends that are still enthralled in the world of addiction – I ask this in Jesus name.
Thank You Father for the grace and mercy that streams from Your throne of grace to me through Jesus, my great High Priest and Saviour. I praise You for the grace that You have extended to me. Were I to spend the rest of my days in grateful thanks I could not express my love for You, in Christ’s name I pray, AMEN.
