Father I know that you have a plan for each of our lives – and I understand that the main desire for every one of Your children is to know Jesus more and more and to live our life in a manner that is pleasing to You and exults Your holy name.
Father I know that Paul reminded us that as Your children we are to know You.. and the power of Your resurrection and the fellowship in Your sufferings.. and I believe that the way we cope with the various difficulties and dangers, heartaches and sufferings, problems and pain, trials and temptations is connected to the fulfillment of the many plans that You have purposed for us, in our lives.
Help me I pray to face the challenges of life looking to Jesus and relying on His sufficient strength and grace. Help me not to repay evil for evil but to love my enemy, and to do good to those that despitefully use me.
Help me more and more to develop the beautiful fruit of the Spirit – and may an abundance of love and joy, peace and patience, kindness and goodness, faithfulness and self-control overflow from my life into the lives of all I meet - until Christ is formed in me and I live my life as unto Him. May I reflect Your purpose in my life from this day forward to Your praise and glory – this I ask in the name of Jesus my Savior,
Thank You Jesus that You are the Vine and I am a branch. Help me day by day to abide in You and to be fruitful in all I say and do. I know that without you I can do nothing but I also know that as I rest in You I can bring forth the sort of fruit that is pleasing to the Father. I want to abide in You and rest in You and remain in You – Help me Jesus I pray,

Oh, thank You Lord Jesus, my heavenly Vine, for the fullness of Your blessing towards me. I want to know and understand more and more of what it means to simply rest in You – to abide in You in sweet union with my Saviour and remain in blessed communion with You in ever closer intimacy.
Teach me Lord and train me to rest in Your love – guard me and guide under the shelter of Your canopy, and reveal more and more of Yourself to me I pray,

Dear Father, who art in heaven, thank You that YOU are my heavenly Husbandman and that You tend my life with such care and concern. Cleanse me and prune me and take away anything that you discover in me that does not glorify Your holy name.
Thank You Father that I am a heavenly branch that is united to my heavenly Vine, the lovely Lord Jesus Christ. May His life flow through mine as sap flows through the branch that is engrafted into its parent stem. Fill me with and inflow Your fullness so that I may live and move and grow and bear fruit as I abide more and more in You,
