Thank You Father that I am Your child and that I have a citizenship laid up for me in the heaven, from which we await our coming Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that Your purpose for humanity is all tied up in Him, and that He is to be honored above all rule and authority.. power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.
Thank You Father that You have put all things in subjection under His feet, and given Him as Head over all things to the Church, which is His body - the fullness of Him Who fills all in all.
Heavenly Father, as a part of that Body I pray that I may fulfill the work that You have purposed for me to do. I thank You Father that Your will for my life is to transform me into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ and I pray that my life may reflect His grace and beauty in all I say and do.
I pray that I may willingly submit to the work of the Holy Spirit in my life – even on those occasions when I do not understand.. and ask that all that is of me may decrease and all that is of Christ may increase – until He is all in all in my life.. to Your praise and glory. This I ask in the name of Jesus,
Heavenly Father, how gracious You are to bring into my life my many precious friends - all of which have become so special to me in their own individual and unique way.
I feel so blessed to be surrounded with so many dear people that I love and care for, and for the knowledge that they also love and care for me too – and thank You for the support that I have so often received from different ones , during those times of difficulty and pain.
Thank You also for the valuable lessons that I have learned through… some of which have been very difficult, and yet I have been have enabled through their loving support and encouragement to grow spiritually and emotionally – and gain wisdom and insight in so many important ways.
Help me to be the sort of friend that is always there for others. An ear to listen, a hand to help and a heart to comfort – and help me to grow in grace and in a knowledge of our Saviour, Lord Jesus, so that I me be His hand, His ear, His heart and His comfort to the many precious people that You have place in my life, in Jesus name I pray,
