Loving Father I pray that I may live my life for Christ and stand fast in Him so that I may be used by You to witness in word or deed to all with whom I come in contact today, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father thank You for Your gift of joy and for Your fruit of rejoicing. Help me to take all my thoughts captive, (those doubts and imaginings that are prompted by the enemy to steal this heavenly gift, that is mine in Christ) knowing that You are worthy of all my praise and that Your joy is a heavenly medicine that strengthens my trust and increases my love for You - in Christ's name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the many epistles of Paul and the wealth of information, teachings and training that they contain. Help me to walk a walk of watchfulness, knowing that You are returning very soon – and enable me to stand fast in the evil day, to rejoice in the Lord always, to live in the light of Your presence and to let a spirit of gentleness be evident to all, with whom I come in contact – this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father thank You that You are the One Who has promised Your inner, living, perfect peace to all who will read, mark, learn, inwardly digest and apply all the principles of godly living that are set out for our learning in the holy Scriptures. Help me to live my life as You intended.. to rejoice continually, to pray without ceasing and to give thanks in all things, knowing that this is Your will for my life, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, keep me I pray from anxious thoughts. Help me to garrison my thought-life on all that is commendable and good and help me to keep the eyes of my heart fixed on Jesus. Help me to make a conscious choice to dwell on those things that are worthy of praise, knowing that the light of Christ and the darkness of all that is evil cannot abide together. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a joy to recall how Paul rejoiced in You, in every situation, and recognised Your hand of blessing through the gifts he received from others. Give me a grateful heart for those You use to supply my need, and use me, I pray, to help provide for the needs of others, to Your praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Thank You Father for Your day-by-day provision and for supplying all that we need for life and health. Thank You Lord that our table is daily filled with so many good things, just as You have promised and that You faithfully provide for all our bodily necessities.
Forgive us for the times when we have been faithless or forgetful of Your generous provision and yet You have never failed to provide the sustenance that we need for our daily life. Lord.. the blessing that fall from Your hand are good and gracious and we thank You that in Christ we lack no good thing.
Help us never to forget that all good things come from You and keep us from taking Your gracious provision for granted. Instill in each us a heart that is truly grateful and filled our mouths with praise and thanksgiving for our daily food.
We thank You for all You bountiful supply and ask that You would continue to give us our daily bread for our bodily nourishment - and to You we give all the praise and glory, in Jesus name
Heavenly Father, help me like Paul to be contented in all circumstances of life.. whether I find myself in humble means or endowed with more prosperous surroundings. Help me to learn how to get along when I am abased or endowed with much prosperity. I pray that in all things I may be contented - whether I am being filled with good things or find myself facing hardship and hunger. Give me a contented heart that looks to Jesus for my strength, my support and my supply - and whether I live in abundance and or find myself in dire need.. I pray that I may live day by day to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Teach me, my Father, to look to Jesus each moment of the day for my strength, and not to my own imperfect, human abilities and intelligence, for without You I can do nothing. But thanks be to God that as I rest in Christ Jesus, He will empower me through His Spirit to carry out Your will and not mine, in my life – to Your praise and glory, AMEN.
Loving Father, I stand amazed at Your gracious bounty, knowing that You care about both the little things that I need today, as well as the eternal blessings that are being laid up for me in heaven, for which I praise Your holy name, in Christ Jesus I pray, 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,
