Heavenly Father, thank You for Your perfect plan of redemption, and that by grace You formed the Lord Jesus from the womb, to be Israel's suffering Servant and eternal King. Thank You that You chose me to be part of the Body of Christ, so that in Him I might show forth the praises of Him Who has called me out of darkness into His marvellous light. Praise His holy name, AMEN
“And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be
his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.”
Source: Verse of the
day for Isaiah 49:5
Dear Lord, what great hope and mystery surrounds this lovely time of the year when the body of Christ specially remember the first advent of our Lord Jesus with such anticipation – that wonderful time when You came into the world, so many years ago, as the King of Israel and Saviour of the world.
Lord we know that it is not Your will that anyone should perish but that all should come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Who alone can save a dying world, that is lost in trespasses and sins.
Open the eyes and the hearts of those that are lost in their sins and blinded to the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ. Visit those we pray who have not yet accepted the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Convict those who have their attention fixed on the temporal things that are passing away….. Lord at this time of Advent when the people of the world are so busy in making preparation for a secular Christmas, we ask You to convict many hearts of their real need of Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
Bring many we pray to a deeper understanding of the real meaning of Advent and Christmas, Help them to come to and realise that this is a time of hope, as we remember when the eternal God became the prefect Man – and was born as a baby to die on a cross for the sin of the world. Help them to understand that He lived His life in the shadow of the cross, so that sinful man could be forgiven - by simply believing on His name. Look down in pity on all who do not know the Lord Jesus as Saviour, in Whose name we pray,
“Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;”

Precious Lord and heavenly Father, praise Your wonderful goodness for Your gracious compassion. Your promises of love are new every morning – great is Thy faithfulness. In Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
“Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.”
Source: Verse of the
day for Isaiah 49:15
Almighty and most merciful God I bring before You this little child who is suffering such pain and discomfort - and I ask that in Your grace and mercy You would raise them back up into full health and strength and work a speedy recovery.
The Lord Jesus took little children in His arms of love and blessed them and I pray that in a very special way You would put Your arms of love and blessing around this little one and minister to each need and every pain.
Little ones do not understand why they are feeling so poorly and I just ask that You would have compassion for this little child and take away any fear and pain - and multiply Your grace so that they come to a quick and lasting recovery….
Thank You Lord in Jesus name we pray,
“Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my
hands; thy walls are
continually before me.”
