Prayer for Matthew 1:22

“Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet:”

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.
