Heavenly Father, at times it does appear that the ungodly are prospering in all they do.. but we praise and thank You that You have promised that those who love You will never be put to shame. Thank You that You are faithful, trustworthy, gracious and of great goodness. Help me to hold fast to the truth of Your Word and to look for the any day appearing of our great God and Saviour Jesu Christ.. Who will one day put all wrongs to right and the earth will be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. In Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that I would develop the patient endurance that perfects my faith, through the trials I face and the way I live. Keep me from developing a worldly perspective and wrong values and help me to be like the farmer who waits for the precious produce of the soil to bring forth its fruit in due season. Help me to trust You in all things and to finish the good work You started in my life. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the many lessons that I can learn from Your Word. Thank You for the example of Job and other men and women of faith who patiently endured in times of deep trouble. May I be one that stands firm in my faith and endures to the end in these evil times for Your praise and glory - for You are a God of compassion and mercy Whose love endures from one generation to another. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the encouragement and truth that is contained in this short but important little verse. May I seek You in all life's needs and necessities through prayer and intercession, and may I rejoice in Your never-failing faithfulness and unchanging goodness and grace. Keep me low at the Cross and rejoicing in my heart for all that You are to me... and to all who have trusted in You for their salvation. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I am so thankful for the wonderful doctors and nurses who always do their best to help me when I am sick or injured. But help me to remember that You are the Great Physician Who is fully able to heal if it is Your will. Thank You that when I am sick I can visit the doctor, but help me to also come to You for healing, to be prayed over and anointed by the elders of my church. Forgive me for the times that I have doubted You and tried to sort things out in my life on my own. Give me a humble heart and increase my trust in You. May I never forget that Your grace is sufficient for every eventuality of life. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I desire to maintain sweet fellowship with You and to walk godly in Christ Jesus. Help me to recognize my faults and quickly seek Your forgivenes. Help me also to confess my faults to those I have wronged, and I pray that I may maintain an attitude of prayer.. and learn to pray fervently in spirit and truth, so that in Christ my prayers may be effective and avail much, to Your honour and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
