Praying through John 12:23

Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You for Your amazing plan of redemption and that the Lord Jesus was ready and willing to forgo all human glory and praise and be led as a lamb to the Cross, so that His death could pay the price for my sin and the sin of the whole world. Thank You that Jesus lived a perfect life, foregoing any honour, in order to be made sin on my account and died a cruel death on Calvary's Cross so that by faith in Him I might be forgiven of my sin and receive life everlasting. Praise Your Holy Name, and thank You, Lord Jesus, AMEN.

Praying through John 12:27

Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You for Your amazing plan of redemption, and that Jesus, the Holy Lamb of God, was willing to set aside His heavenly glory, be born into this fallen race, and be made sin instead of me... so that I might be made the righteousness of God in Him. Thank You that when He faced the trauma of the Cross and spiritual separation from You, that He chose to do Your will and glorify Your name through the sacrifice of Himself. Thank You, Father. I pray that I may be ready and willing to give my life as a living sacrifice for His name's sake and for His greater glory. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, how I praise and glorify Your holy name for the life and witness of the lovely Lord Jesus Who came to earth to fulfil Your redemptive purpose and plan for the fallen race of mankind. Father, if it were not for His miraculous birth, sinless life, sacrificial death, and glorious Resurrection, I would still be dead in my trespasses and sin and at enmity with You. Thank You that through Your goodness and grace, You purposed and planned to redeem mankind through faith in His finished work. Thank You for saving me. Thank You for sending Jesus to be the sacrifice for my sin. Thank You that You loved me before I knew You and have brought me into Your heavenly family. May I live and work to Your praise and glory, from this day forward and even forevermore. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, it is truly sombre to realise how man’s pride can be translated into unbelief and the shocking consequences of rejecting Jesus as the Word of God manifest in the flesh.

Help me to keep looking to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith, and keep my ears open and attentive to His voice. In His name I pray, AMEN.
