Prayer for Luke 4:18

“The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free the oppressed,”

Heavenly Father, thank You that You sent the Lord Jesus to preach the good news to the poor, to proclaim freedom to captives and recovery of sight the blind. I confess that I am poor and needy. I too was captive to sin and Satan and was spiritually blind and dead in my trespasses and sin. Thank You that in Your grace You redeemed me from the pit, reached down and saved me from my captivity and opened my eyes to the truth of Your Word. Thank You that by Christ’s death and resurrection I am a new person, and have His Spirit within – to lead, to guide, to protect and to teach me in the way that I should go. May I keep My eyes fixed on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith – in Whose name I pray, 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.
