Praying through Job 1:1

Heavenly Father, I bless and thank You for the many lessons I can learn from the book of Job. Like so many before me, I too have misrepresented Your grace and favour toward mankind through my own lack of understanding and limited perception. Thank You for Your goodness and grace, Your forbearance and mercy, Your wisdom and strength, and Your kindness and favour toward us all. You commended Your love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, the Lord Jesus Christ died for us. Thank You for not giving us what we deserve, but instead giving us what we do not deserve. Help me to come to a deeper knowledge and understanding of Who You are, and help me to live my life in a way that honours You. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN. 

“There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.”

Praying through Job 1:6

Heavenly Father, thank You for this peep into the spiritual realm. Thank You that the rule of sin and Satan over Your beautiful earth will soon be over. I praise You that despite Adam and Eve’s sin, the abdication of their responsibility, and the relinquishment of man’s dominion over the earth to Satan – that by Your grace, You sent the Lord Jesus to pay the price for our sin and redeem us from a lost eternity. By grace through faith in Him, we are forgiven of our sin and given eternal life. Help me to live for Him during my time on earth, no matter what pain and suffering I may be called upon to go through. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.

“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.”

Praying through Job 1:21

Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing lessons we can learn from Your servant, Job. I thank You for the many blessings You have graciously given me throughout my life, and I pray that I may hold the things of this world lightly, knowing that all I have is from You - and that whether I am rich or poor, whether I have much or little, whether I am rejoicing or in mourning, whether You give or take away - I pray that I may rejoice in Your goodness always, and recognise that You are my God and Saviour, Who died so that I might live, to Your praise and glory, AMEN.

“And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.”
