Prayer for Job 1:1

“There was a man in the country of Uz named Job. He was a man of perfect integrity, who feared God and turned away from evil.”

Heavenly Father, we bless and thank You for the many lessons we 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. Thank You that You commended Your love towards 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.
