Bless the Lord, O my soul, and I pray, Father, that You use me as a channel of Your blessing to others. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the lessons we can learn from Your Holy Word. Help me to learn from the failures of Israel who allowed their senses and imagination to reject Your Word and fear their enemies, when they listened to the bad report of the 10 fearful spies, instead of trusting Your word and allowing their faith in Your promises to influence them. Help me not to allow myself to become fearful with all the difficulties and dangers in this fallen world that surround me on every side. Help me to keep the eyes of my heart upon Jesus and not lean on my own imagination or understanding. Thank You that all Your promises are 'Yes' and 'Amen' in Christ Jesus, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are my portion, my inheritance, and my great reward. Help me to give willingly and cheerfully make my offering to You, knowing that all that I have has come from You. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the insights we gain from the story of Balaam and his little donkey. Thank You for showing us how destructive a love of money and a lust for wealth can be... blinding us to the truth and impeding our spiritual discernment and understanding. Keep me from any lustful thoughts and give me spiritual discernment and the wisdom to recognise if I am becoming embroiled in anything that may endanger my soul. Open my eyes to see You and my ears to hear Your call, and lead me in the path of righteousness for His name's sake, AMEN.
I praise You, O Lord, for You are our trustworthy God and never-changing Saviour. Thank You for the truth of Scripture and for the assurance that Your Word will stand fast for ever. Thank You that You will never let me down, despite my own faults and failings. In the name of Jesus, I pray that I may become more and more like Him, as I submit to the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit in my life. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus is that Star and Sceptre Who has gained victory over all our enemies by His death and Resurrection. Thank You also for the many Bible stories that warn about the deceptive tactics of the enemy who desires to wreck our testimony and dishonour Your name. Keep me low at the Cross and broken before You. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
