Prayer for Mark

Choose Chapter

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your word and the wonderful truth that it contains. Thank You that Jesus set aside His heavenly glory and took upon Himself the humble status of a Servant of all.. so that He could identify with our humanity and pay the price for our sin - a price that we are unable to pay. I pray that I may follow in His footsteps and live in humble submission to Your Holy Spirit all the days of my life, and only do those things that I hear from Your - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father thank You that You died for me and that I am saved by Your grace alone, through faith in Christ. Thank You that the moment I believed on Him I was baptised into the Body of Christ, positioned in Him and became a member of His mystical Body - the Church. Thank You for the opportunity to proclaim outwardly my spiritual birth and privileged position in Christ by going through the waters of baptism as an open declaration of my change of heart and my trust in Him. Thank You that my old sin nature is chained to the cross, and I have received newness of life. Keep me from fleshly pursuits and keep me pure in Your sight, so that others may see my life and glorify You, in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, what a lesson we can learn from the people of Nazareth, who refused to recognise the Lord Jesus, the king of glory, Who had grown up in their village and visited them, to give them the words of eternal life - but they refused to listen and allowed doubt to cast the shadow of unbelief in their heart.. and a cloud of rejection over their town. Help me not to fall into the trap of ignoring those whom You are preparing for a great work of ministry in Your eternal plan. Thank You that although He was despised and rejected by His own people, You graciously have brought Gentiles into Your family and equipped us to be used in Your service. Fulfil now O Lord Your word in each member of Christ's body and equip each one of us to carry out the work that You have prepared for us to do. Keep us from devaluing the service of others but rather may we remember to give encouragement to Your people and allow faith to blossom in our hart. Thank You that Jesus did not give up on Israel, despite rejecting Him and that the day is coming when that nation will recognise their Lord and their God - heaven's greatest Prophet, High Priest and King.

Heavenly Father, words cannot describe the thanksgiving and praise I have for sending Your only begotten Son to be the substitite my sin. No one but God made flesh, was good enough to have paid the price for sin, and without His glorious resurrection from the dead, we would remain dead in our sin and without hope in the world. Yet You purposed in Your heart that He would pay the price for my sin, through the sacrifice of His deathless life - for as the eternal son of God death could not hold Him, and as the sinless Son of Man death had no claim on His sinless life. How I praise You that He is the First-fruit from the dead and His unique resurrection has paved the way for all who believe on Him to rise into life immortal - to Him be all praise and glory, world without end - AMEN.

May I grow in grace and in a knowledge of my risen and glorified Saviour Jesus Christ - until His life is lived through me and I can say with the apostle Paul - it is not I that live, but Christ that lives in me. To You be all praise and glory for ever and ever, AMEN.

“And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your word and the beautiful examples of faith and love in the life of Mary Magdalene, and so many other disciples, that trusted Christ for the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting. Thank You that You died to pay the price for my sin and rose from the dead.. so that I too may rise into life immortal. Increase my love for You. Help me to hold fast to the faith.. and may I never forget what Jesus has done for me - not only in this age but in the ages to come. Thank You, in Jesus name, AMEN.

“Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.”
