Heavenly Father, as I read Your word and consider the truths that it contains, I see that Your ways are so much greater than man can imagine. You gave Your SON to be born as Son of Man - just as the prophets of old foretold. Thank You that Your plans and purposes, which were made in eternity past.. can never be changed and that one day.. Jesus is returning as King of kings, to sit on the throne of David - where He will reign in righteousness, and rule in justice. Thank You in Jesus name. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You loved us so much that You sent Your only begotten Son to be born of a virgin, to become our Saviour by means of His vicarious death and resurrection. Thank You that He died for me and rose again so that I could have His resurrected life in me. Thank You for the Bible and for the truth that it contains. May I draw closer to You day by day and grow in grace.. and in a knowledge of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Thank You Father for the gift of Your only begotten Son and the unfolding of Your eternal plan of Salvation, which started as a tiny seed in the woman, travelling through time until He was born as a tiny baby in Bethlehem and given the wonderful name of JESUS by His earthy guardian. He truly is my Salvation and I thank You for His life, His example and His redeeming work on Calvary's cross. May the name of Jesus be lifted today, and I pray that I may be used by You to share this truth with lost souls who need a Saviour, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the gospel of Matthew and the beautiful way that he links the truth of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ with the many Old Testament prophecies that foretold of His life and ministry, His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection. Thank You for telling us the end from the beginning, so that we might know the truth and be set free from slavery to sin, by faith in Him. Give me a greater understanding of Your word and more insight into the plan of redemption which threads its way throughout the old and new testaments. Help me to grow in grace and in a knowledge of our Lord and Saviour in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Loving heavenly Father, I pray that I may see you with fresh eyes, and a new vision of Who you are. Thank You that You are living in me and that one day I will see You face to face and know as I am known – in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
