Heavenly Father, the message of salvation is truly glorious, and yet challenging and very sober. There were many at the end of the dispensation of Israel, who turned their heart against the gospel - just as there are many today, who similarly refuse to believe the message of salvation by grace, through faith in Christ. We pray, that as the time for Christ's return draws ever closer, that You would draw increasing numbers of men and women to Yourself. Use me, I pray, to be a mouthpiece in my generation, just as John the Baptist proclaimed the truth in his. May Your name be glorified, in Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, the message of John the Baptist is a sobering one. Thank You that I have been baptised, by the Holy Spirit, into the body of Christ, and have been saved by grace through faith in Him. I pray for those that remain dead in their sin and are facing the terrible Baptism of fire, which awaits all those who do not believe on His name, for the forgiveness of sin and life everlasting. Look down in mercy on the fallen race of man and use me as an instrument to tell out the gospel of grace. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Lord, teach me how to pray as Christ prayed. Teach me to live my life in constant and continuous communion with You - to Your praise and glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, How I thank You for sending Jesus to be my Saviour. Thank You for Your Word of truth which reminds me of all that Christ has done for me. May I live my life for Him - so that He increases and I decrease to His praise and glory, AMEN
Heavenly Father, what an important lesson to learn that the Lord Jesus Himself was required to wait until He was about 30 years of age before He began the work that You prepared for Him to do. I pray that I may be willing to learn the lessons You would teach me and to wait for Your perfect timing in my life. Give me a teachable spirit and a heart that is obedient to You, in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Father I kneel in awe and wonder as I contemplate Who You are and what You have done for me - You are worthy of my eternal love and praise, for ever and ever, AMEN.
