Father in heaven, I worship and praise Your holy name for Your wonderful plan of salvation. Thank You for sending Jesus, the Word, Who was with the Father before the world began. He came to earth willingly, in human flesh, so that a sinner such as I may be redeemed by His precious blood. Praise Your name and praise Jesus, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, the more I reflect on the truth of Your Word, the more amazed I become at Your love for me. Thank You that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us so that by faith in Him, we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. To Him be all praise and glory, AMEN.
You Lord, are worthy to receive all honour, and glory, and praise. Thank You for Jesus, eternal Creator of everything. He not only created me, but He bought me with a price, His own precious blood on the Cross of Calvary. Thank You that in Christ Jesus, I have become a new creation. What a wonderful Saviour! May I show forth His glory in the ages to come. In His name I pray, AMEN.
How I praise You, Heavenly Father, for the life of the Lord Jesus. Thank You for rescuing me from the kingdom of darkness and bringing me into Your glorious kingdom of light. And thank You for giving me my new life in Christ. May I live each day in a way that is pleasing to You, placing my self-life on the Cross, and living in spirit and truth to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, that the Light of Jesus has shone into my heart, for I trust Him alone as my Saviour and Lord. May the light of Your love shine through me to others, for Your praise and glory, until it is not I that shines in my life, but the light of Christ shining through me. This I ask in Jesus' precious name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the witness of Your word and thank You for sending Jesus into the world to be the Light of the world and Saviour of mankind. Help me to walk in the light as He is in the light and to let the light of His love shine through me to others, so that my life becomes a true testimony to Him. I pray that I may decrease and He may increase, until He is all in all in my life - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Father, thank You for all those that are involved in helping others with their addiction to alcohol. We thank You for places like Alcoholic Anonymous and the many Christian ministries and rehab centres that are dedicated to helping men and women recover from this debilitating and distressing addiction, and showing them the love of the Lord Jesus.
Give wisdom, grace and patience to all that are serving in one capacity or another to relieve the distress and devastation that alcoholism leaves in it wake. We pray that You would give them the right words of encouragement and advice to enable those that are addicted to permanently break free of their alcoholism and so live a more meaningful and fruitful life.
We pray that You would not only rescue alcoholic men and women from the depths of despair to which many have fallen, but also that You would raise them up into a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and bring them into newness of life in Him, to His praise and glory. This we ask in Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, I want to know the Lord Jesus more and more. Develop in me a desire to know Him more. Open my eyes to see Him, open my ears to hear His voice, and open my heart to love Him more and more each day. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father how I thank You that You sent Jesus to become our kinsman-redeemer. Thank You that despite our sinfulness our rejection of the Lord Jesus, that in Your mercy and grace You completed Your work of salvation so that whosever believes on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work at Calvary will be saved - praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I may call You Father, because I am Your child, through Jesus Christ my Lord. Shine more of His light into my heart, so that I come to know You more and to love You better each day. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what grace that You should love the world so much that while we were all dead in our trespasses and sins and at enmity with You - You sent Jesus to be our Saviour and die for our sin. Thank You that I have been born-again - born from above - born into the spiritual realm by FAITH. Thank You for Your goodness and grace, in Jesus name I pray. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was made flesh and came to dwell among us as the unique and only begotten Son of God, Who alone qualifies to be our Redeemer. Thank You that He was born into the human race as a man - fully God yet fully man - so that by His death and Resurrection, He could become the singular substitute for the sin of the world. Thank You that by grace through faith in Him, I have been redeemed. What a wonderful Saviour, full of grace and truth. To Him be all praise and glory, AMEN.
Loving Father, thank You for Your gracious kindness. Thank You that in Christ, all the righteous requirements of the Law that I am unable to fulfil were fulfilled on my behalf, by Christ Jesus my Saviour. Thank You that in Him I am saved and have all things richly to enjoy. In His name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for revealing Yourself to me through Your only begotten Son, my Saviour Jesus Christ. Open my eyes to see You more. Open my ears to hear Your voice. Open my heart to understand Your desire for my life, and may I live a life that is pleasing to You. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that by Your grace, I responded to the call to turn from my sin to Jesus and trusted in Him for the forgiveness of my sin. Thank You that despite being rejected by the nation of Israel, there are many Jews who responded to the warning voice of John the Baptist. By faith in Jesus, they have become part of the one New Man in Christ, where there is neither Jew nor Gentile. I look forward to that day when Christ will return for His Church, and I pray for the day when Israel as a nation will repent of their sin, turn back to God, and acknowledge Jesus as Lord and King. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Jesus as the true Lamb of God Who has taken away all my sins. I am so thankful that Jesus died on the Cross for me, becoming the only substitute for my sins. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the witness and prophetic ministry of John the Baptist - the humble forerunner of Christ who died to his own self importance and was ready and willing to point people to Jesus. Help me to develop the characteristics of humility that are so evident in his ministry, and I pray that I may be ready and willing to say, "I must decrease, and He must increase." I praise and thank You that Jesus came into the world to save sinners and fulfilled all righteousness, so that by faith in Him I have been forgiven of my sin and received life everlasting. Thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You gave Your only begotten Son into the world to be my Saviour. Thank You for the truth of Your Word and the testimony that it contains. I pray that in word and deed, my life may be a testimony and witness to the truth that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and Saviour of the world. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Dear Lord and Heavenly Father, thank You that whosoever will, may follow Jesus and find the answer to every question they have, in Him. Thank You that Jesus is the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world, and He is the Lamb on the throne Who has secured our redemption through His sacrificial work on the Cross. Thank You for the example of John the Baptist who pointed people to Jesus and for the two disciples that discovered he held the answer to every aching question they had. May I not only follow Jesus but point others to Him - in Whom are the words of eternal life. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for a peep into the lives of Philip and Nathanael who were men of faith in whom there was no guile, but who were ready and willing to respond to the call of Jesus in their lives and recognise that He is not only the Son of Man Who died on the Cross to pay the price for our sin, but God the Son Who rose from the dead so that by faith in Him we might not perish but have everlasting life. Help me never to diminish the deity of Christ. Help me never to forget that He became my Kinsman-Redeemer, and help me to grow more and more like Jesus in the days that lie ahead. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
