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 for Jesus. Thank You that He came to identify with sinners such as I, so that by faith in Him, I might be forgiven of my sins and clothed in His righteousness. Thank You that the Lord Jesus came to fulfil all righteousness, and lifted the curse of death, from all who would believe on His name. Thank You that He was obedient, in all things, even to death on the cross.. and thank You for the written word of God, which proclaims the end from the beginning. Help me to understand and apply all that You would teach me, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Dear Lord, how I thank You for Your grace towards me for you have lifted me up out of the pit that my life was in and set my feet on the rock of my Salvation, which is Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour. Thank You for freeing me from the shame and sin of my addiction, which has robbed me of so many of years of my life and caused me to lose not only my home but many of my friends and family as well.
Lord Jesus there are those that would seek to entice me back into the shadow from which I escaped and are trying to almost blackmail me into returning back to my life of crime and debauchery – but I have been set free and I do not want to return – keep me from temptation on those occasions when I feel alone and protect me from the pressures that I have been put under on certain occasions to return.
Lord I know that ALL my past sins have been forgiven and that I am clothed in the righteousness of Christ Jesus – keep me walking in the path of holiness and protect me from those that are still slaves to their addictions – I pray Lord that You will rescue those of my friends that are still enthralled in the world of addiction – I ask this in Jesus name.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful way that Your truth is unfolded and Your word is fulfilled in holy Scripture. Thank You for the lessons that we can learn from people like John the Baptist, who faithfully fulfilled his calling, despite the cruel persecution he endured. Thank You for the example that Jesus gave us, in those early years of His life and ministry, when He quietly waited until the appointed time to begin His work. Help me to follow their good example and be faithful to my calling, and give me the grace to wait for Your perfect timing in my life - This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the glorious gospel of Christ and that in Him I have forgiveness of sins. Thank You for the Word of truth that explains the gospel of God.. that it is only as we turn from sin, and believe in Christ as the promised Messiah of Israel and Saviour of the world that we can be reconciled back to You. Thank You that Jesus is the power of God and the wisdom of God for all who believe in Him and thank You that Your promises to Israel and those to the Church will all be fulfilled at the appointed time. Thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of Jesus, Who during His earthly life, placed the needs of others before His own comfort, and gathered the strength He needed to finish the work that You ordained for Him to do - through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit - to Your praise and glory. May I live as Jesus lived.. in total dependence upon You, and in submission to the Holy Spirit, knowing that Your grace is sufficient for all the work that You have prepared for me to do. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Thank You Father that You died on the cross to pay the price for my sins and that by believing on Your name, my sins have been forgiven forever. Thank You that You loved the world so much that You came in the person of Jesus Christ to be our sacrifice for sin - and that my life is now hid with Christ in God, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I want to be emptied of all that is of the old life so that I may be filled day by day with Your Spirit of truth. I pray that I may daily die to my old self-effort and prideful self-righteousness, and submit to the indwelling Holy Spirit.. so that the life of Christ may live in me to Your praise and glory. I pray that the life of Christ IN me, may produce the acceptable fruit of His-righteousness, to His praise and glory in Whose name I pray. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that we are not bound by religious laws and legalistic practices, but have been made a new creation in Christ. Thank You that He is our Sabbath rest, not only during our sojourn on earth but in the eternal ages to come. Thank You that we are not bound by burdensome rules and regulations, but have recognised that the Law was a tool that God used to point sinners to Jesus Christ, in Whom we find true rest and refreshment as we abide in Him and He in us. Thank You that Jesus Christ is the sovereign Lord – even of the Sabbath. May we worship You in spirit and truth in our worship services and every day of the week.. and may we take every opportunity to meet with other believers and enjoy Christian fellowship in our Churches and Chapels. This we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Dear God – the only source of healing and hope and the one fountain of peace and hope – look down in pity and mercy on Your many children who are facing adversity and afflicted by the miseries that this world system is imposing.
Provide for the needs for all those that are called by Your name, who are facing financial hardships and health problems. Enrich them with Your heavenly hope; nourish them with all Your goodness and bring each of them safely into their promised home ,
In Jesus name I pray,
Heavenly Father, too long have I relied on my own understanding and only viewed Your word as a good but superficial picture-book, but Lord I desire to gaze deeply into You word and ask that You would guide me into all truth, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how astonishing to realise that Jesus also got tired and would have been overwhelmed by life's circumstances, if He had not trusted wholly on You to guide Him to do what was right. Thank You that You sent Jesus to the lost sheep of the house of Israel and their rejection of their Messiah has secured my acceptance of Christ and my salvation by grace - through faith in Him. Thank You that they will one day recognise Jesus; repent of their sin; be restored into fellowship with You and trust Him as their Messiah. Thank You that You gave us the Scriptures to help us understand Who Jesus is and why He came. Thank You that You encourage our faith, when the storms of life seem overwhelming and that no-one - not even a wild, naked demon-possessed man is beyond redemption - by grace - through faith in the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Help me to live as Christ lived - in total dependence on YOU, this I ask in His holy name, AMEN,
Heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Your only begotten Son to be born into the human race, so that by His perfect life, sacrificial death and glorious resurrection, I might have life everlasting and the forgiveness of sins.. through faith in Him. Keep me, I pray, from developing any biases.. give me a teachable spirit and guide me into all truth - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Thank You Father for the work that You have purposed to do through me. Help me to grow ever closer to Jesus day by day and draw on all His abundant supply moment by moment, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
Thank You Father for Your Word and for helping me to recognise how quickly You can be pushed out of my life. Help me to change my attitude from prioritizing the urgent things in life to recognising that keeping the eyes of my heart on You is the more important thing in life. Refresh my weary soul today I pray as I abide in You and rest in Your love, in Jesus name, AMEN.
Loving Lord, I come to You and confess my sin of abortion, and ask that Your healing grace would touch my heart today. The remembrance of it is eating me inside and I need Your healing grace and loving forgiveness.
I cast this great burden onto You, knowing that You have promised to heal those that are broken-hearted and to bind up the inner wounds of those that are hurting.
I know that the consequences of our wrong choices can bring much pain, but I also know that You are a God Who has promised to forgive and heal all who come to You with a contrite heart and that You will remember our sins no more.
Forgive me Lord, heal my life.. create in me a clean hear I pray and renew a right spirit within me – this I ask in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, what an amazing plan of redemption, that despite the fall of Adam, You purposed to redeem mankind by the sacrifice of Your only begotten Son – and that through His death and resurrection I too have received the forgiveness of sin and life everlasting. Thank You that the old creation will one day be totally replaced by the new Creation-in-Christ – when ALL things will become new. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I have been saved by grace - through faith in Christ. But Lord, I realise that to truly become a disciple of Yours, I must deny myself, and all that it entails. I now understand that I must lay my entire life on the sacrificial alter, as a willing offering.. and be ready and willing to say, 'not I but Christ'. May I be prepared to say, in all things - 'not my will but Yours be done', and help me to deny myself, take up my own cross and follow You, willingly and joyfully - to Your praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
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.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the lessons we can learn from the man, who cried out to the Lord Jesus for help, and was reminded that, 'all things are possible to him who believes'. May I never forget that You are the same yesterday, today and forever and that Your power to heal and help in every situation, is as sure today as it was when You healed the sick and turned water into wine. Thank You that by grace through faith in Jesus I can come to the throne of grace for mercy to find help in time of need. Keep me from doubting Your word; increase my faith in the days ahead and prevent me from being adversely influence by the mountainous situations I seem to be facing and the difficulties and dangers that are looming ahead. Lord I do believe - increase my love and trust for You - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times when my trust in You has been overshadowed by foolish doubt and my spiritual walk has strayed from the paths of righteousness, truth and wisdom. Help my to fulfill the work that you have prepared for me to do, in the power of Your Holy Spirit - to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for this warning to eschew all that is evil and sinful from my life. I pray that I may do only those things that honour Your name. Lord, I know that in my own strength my fleshly works will be burnt-up like filthy rags in Your holy presence, but I thank You that You have prepared good, spiritual works for me to do, which will stand the test of Your purifying fires, when carried out in the power of Your Holy Spirit and through Your sufficient grace. May I live and work to Your praise and only do those things that are righteous in Your sight and for the honour of Your holy name – this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the saving blood of Jesus, and thank You that no one is too old or too young to hear the truth of the gospel of grace - that Christ died for our sin according to the Scripture - that He was buried and rose again according to Scripture, and that whosoever believes on HIM.. will not perish but have everlasting life - Thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that I may come to You day by day with an attitude of helpless, trusting dependence.. joyful hope, a teachable spirit - a heart that is open to the truth of the gospel and a teachable mind that is open to all that You would have me learn and understand. May I decrease and You increase in my life, and may I grow in grace to Your praise and glory - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for this important understanding, that there are none that are good, and that it is only by Your grace, through faith in Christ that we have been forgiven of our sins and have received eternal life as a gift of Your grace, as our eternal inheritance. We lift up those that are seeking to know You, and pray that many hearts may be opened to the good news of Jesus Christ, our God and Saviour. Use me to be a conduit, through whom the truth of the gospel of grace may flow to all, with whom I come in contact today - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times when I have lived foolishly and prayed selfishly and have only been interested in my own desires - help me to consider others before myself and learn to become a servant of all - to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Lord I pray for wisdom and grace to know how to suffer with You in this life and to give my life in service to others and to You. Keep me from hankering after the glitz and glamour of this world and may I, like Christ humble myself, become obedient to Your word… and follow in Your footsteps – so that Your name may be glorified, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the truth of Your word, which tells us the end from the beginning. Thank You that Your promises to Israel still stands, despite their centuries of unbelief.. and thank You that Your promises to me and the whole Christian Church remain YES and AMEN in Christ Jesus, my Saviour, despite the times that my faith has failed and my pride has caused me to forget You. May I live and work to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father what amazing grace, that You should send Your only begotten Son to come to earth as the heavenly Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world, and also as the human son of king David, Who will set up a kingdom of peace and prosperity, on earth. Thank You that You loved the world so much that You chose to die on the cross so that we might live. Thank You that Your plan of redemption does not exclude anyone and thank You that all Who call on the name of the Lord, in faith, will be saved. Help me to live my life in a way that honours Your name and thank You that all Your plans and purposes for the salvation of man and the restoration of the world are 'Yes' and 'Amen' in Christ Jesus our Lord - in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father we lift up all those women and mothers whose hearts are aching because of their decision to have an abortion and who are now riddled with guilt, because of their choices.
We also lift up those whose freely chose to abort their babies, based on their own selfishness attitude.. thinking that a baby in their life would spoil the prearranged plans they had made or inhibit their desired destiny.
We pray Your mercy and forgiveness over each one and ask that in a very special way You would come alongside each woman who has made a decision to terminate their pregnancy – and meet each one at their very point of need.
Comfort those that are grieving, support those that are weak and convict those that have rejected the sacredness of a human life – and bring each one we pray, to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus, and an assurance of Your gracious forgiveness. This we ask in Jesus name.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful Word of truth, and the lessons that it teaches. I pray that I may take to heart all that You want me to learn. Give me an understanding heart, a teachable spirit and a desire to do Your will. Help me, I pray, to do all for Your praise and glory, unto my life's end. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father how we bless and thank You that Your mercies are new every morning and that You are faithful to keep Your promises. Thank You that in Your grace You went to the cross to pay the price for the sin of the whole world so that all who believe on Your name would not perish but have everlasting life -to Him be all praise and glory - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, the blindness of these religious zealots in so sad, because they missed the joy of being taught the truth, by the incarnate Son of God. Keep me from spiritual blindness and foolish religiosity, and open my eyes to see the truth of Your word. Open my ears, as well, to hear the glorious gospel of God - and reveal to me any legalistic biases I may have developed. I pray that I may love You with all my heart, and soul, and mind, and strength, knowing that You gave Your only begotten Son to come to earth, as the sacrifice for my sin - for which I offer my heart-felt thanks and everlasting praise to You - for You are a good and gracious God. Thank You, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are One, unique God in Three Persons. Thank You that You are the exclusive and only true God, and that You stand without comparison, above the false gods of the pagan, gentile nations. Thank You that You alone are the Almighty God, Who was and is and is to come. Thank You that You are the one and only Saviour of mankind, and that there is no other way by which we must be saved, other than by grace alone, through faith alone in Christ's finished work - Who alone deserves our worship and praise, AMEN.
Father God I know that my love is weak and cold by comparison with Your yearning heart of love towards me, which is expressed in the incredible gift of the Lord Jesus as my substitute and saviour. I want to love You more and more with every facet of my life, in thought and word and deed. Pour into my heart Your holy love that I may be used as a channel, to pass Your love out to those that I meet today – in Jesus' name. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You have opened my eyes to the truth of Who Jesus is - the eternal Son of God Who was born as the perfect Son of Man to be the propitiation for my sins, redeem me from the pit and reconcile me back to God. Thank You Lord that You willingly set aside Your heavenly glory to come to earth to die on the cross to save a sinner like me. Thank You that You rose to give me Your life and thank You that You live in me and I in You - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father - what amazing grace that You should send Your only begotten Son to be born as a Man and suffer and die for me. Thank You that the Lord Jesus was willing to face the enormous consequences of the cross and become sin for my sake. Thank You that the wrath of God that I justly deserve was poured out in Him in my stead, so that by believing in Him I might be forgiven, redeemed, justified, sanctified and glorified - to Your praise and glory, AMEN
Heavenly Father, I stand amazed that the Lord Jesus Christ should be so despised and rejected of men and accused of such terrible blasphemy in the most shocking manner - knowing that He came to die on the cross to pay the price for the sins of the high priest and all who accused Him in that court of law - knowing that came to earth to die for my sin too, so that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life - Praise His holy name, AMEN
Loving Father I can only wonder at the pain that Christ went through to save me from eternal separation from You and I humbly thank You that He became sin on my behalf so that I could be made the righteousness of God, in Him. In Jesus precious name I pray, AMEN
Thank You heavenly Father that Christ's resurrection is an integral part of my redemption.

Thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, forgive me for too often taking for granted.. all that Christ's substitutionary death and glorious resurrection means to me. Thank You Lord for sending Your only begotten Son to die on the cross to pay the price for my sins and that He rose again so that I could receive His resurrected life. 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.
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.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am part of the body of Christ by faith in His death, burial and resurrection. Thank You that I have been entrusted with this heavenly mission to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. I pray that in Your strength I will carry out this evangelistic mission in the place that You have put me.. to Your praise and glory. Thank You that You are with me to the end of the age, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Christ's sacrificial work on the cross is sufficient for my salvation, AMEN.
