Loving Shepherd of the sheep, thank You for Your gracious promises, not only to Israel but to Your new creation in Christ. Thank You that Your promises to all Your children are “Yes” and “Amen” in Christ, in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness to Your people Israel, who for so long have been a nation living in unbelief and in rebellion to the truth of the gospel. Thank You for Your long-suffering mercy and the assurance that they will one day fulfil the work that You have called them to do - to be Your witnesses to a world that is lost in sin and to know and believe that You are the Lord. Thank You that in Your grace You called out of the Gentiles a people for Your name, to tell forth the good news of the gospel of grace... until the day when Israel proclaims the gospel of the kingdom and acknowledges Jesus as their Messiah and Lord - in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
What a wonderful God You are, and I praise and thank You for Your grace, wisdom, love and patience towards me, which causes me to rejoice greatly. There is nothing to commend me to You, and yet You have called me and chosen me, saved me and fashioned me to be Your witness to this generation and in the world to come, life everlasting. Thank You for Your gracious character and redeeming love and may I sing forth Your praise, not only with my lips but in my life, for ever and ever, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Thank You Father that I am Your child and that I have a citizenship laid up for me in the heaven, from which we await our coming Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that Your purpose for humanity is all tied up in Him, and that He is to be honored above all rule and authority.. power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.
Thank You Father that You have put all things in subjection under His feet, and given Him as Head over all things to the Church, which is His body - the fullness of Him Who fills all in all.
Heavenly Father, as a part of that Body I pray that I may fulfill the work that You have purposed for me to do. I thank You Father that Your will for my life is to transform me into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ and I pray that my life may reflect His grace and beauty in all I say and do.
I pray that I may willingly submit to the work of the Holy Spirit in my life – even on those occasions when I do not understand.. and ask that all that is of me may decrease and all that is of Christ may increase – until He is all in all in my life.. to Your praise and glory. This I ask in the name of Jesus,
