Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Jesus to be the representative Man of Your new creation. Thank You that He was prepared to come to earth to identify with my sin and die in my place. Thank You that He was willing to pay the death penalty for me (and the sin of the whole world). Thank You that I am no longer identified with the first Adam but have become a new creation in Christ - by faith, and that in Him I have been reconciled back to God; forgiven of my sins; in-dwelt by the Spirit and received His eternal life. I pray that I too may live in submission to the Holy Spirit all the days of my lif.. and be obedient to Your Word so that I may be filled with the Spirit and do only those things that are pleasing in Your sight - this I ask in Jesus name AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus lived His life in the power of the Holy Spirit as the perfect example of how I should live my life. I pray that I may walk in spirit and truth and submit each day to the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit - in total dependence upon You. Thank You that I was placed into the body of Christ when I first believed and thank You that by faith I have Your life within. I pray that from this day forward.. I will choose to willingly walk in spirit and truth, as the Holy Spirit leads, guides, fills and empowers me. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I stand amazed that You should love me so much that You sent the Lord Jesus to be my Saviour.. to be wounded on my account; to die a cruel death on my behalf and rise again the third day, so that by grace through faith in Him I have been redeemed from the pit; healed of my wounds; set free from slavery to sin; given a new life in Christ and found my rest in Him. May I live My life in humble dependence upon You day by day, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank you for this glorious dispensation of grace. Thank You for saving me. Help me to live godly in Christ Jesus, as I look for Your any day return, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for this beautiful story which demonstrates Your power and compassion. May I never forget Who You are - both in Your Majesty as my God and in Your compassion as My Brother - in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
