Is it possible, O God, possible that you can love such as I?
Yet I know it is true. If I allowed myself to doubt your love, all would be lost.
Thank you, God, thank you for loving me. Help me never to betray such wonderful love.
Heavenly Father, we live in a world where the security we once seemed to enjoy has been eroded right away and so many dark clouds of unknowing seen to be looming on the future's unpredictable horizon - and all that seemed to be so secure and reliable has turned to sawdust in our hands and evaporated like the morning mist.
But Lord we praise Your name that we can entrust our future in Your safe-keeping, knowing that Your love surrounds us and that Your grace is sufficient.. no matter how black the circumstances of life may appear. Thank You Lord that You hold the world in the palm of Your hand, and nothing can snatch us from that secure position in Him.
Thank You that we are accepted in the beloved and loved by the Father and thank You Lord that no danger may overtake any of Your children, that is not permitted by You - and which will not be used to fulfill a just and glorious purpose.
Keep our hearts from unnecessary fretting or worry and in the power of the Holy Spirit may we build ourselves up in your most holy faith.. by praying in spirit and truth and walking the way of righteousness. May we learn day by day to prevent our eyes from focussing on the trials and tribulations that are coming on the earth - and rather help us to look to Jesus, knowing that in all things He is the victor - and we are securely positioned in Him - through time and into eternity...Thank You in Jesus name,
Dear heavenly Father, for most of my life I have tried to earn Your love and gain Your approval.. and whatever I tried to do, never made me feel that I had done enough - in fact the more I tried to get You to love me.. the more I found that I failed You miserably.
And as I look back on the mission trips, ministry activities, times of prayer and the many bible studies I attended.. the more I believed that I must be disappointing to You, because I was not doing as much as I ought to do. Father as I look back at this period of my life, is saddens me to realise what an incorrect perception I had of You.. and Your unconditional love to all Who are saved by grace, through faith in Christ Jesus.
Father forgive me for misrepresenting Your Father-heart of love and thank You for showing me that Your love for me is not dependent on what I can do for You but rests entirely on what the Lord Jesus did for me, on the cross. Thank You that Your approval does not rely on me at all but simply rests on the fact that I believed on the Lord Jesus as my Saviour - and that I am accepted by YOU because of HIM.. accepted in the Beloved because I am a new creation in Christ - clothed in His righteousness and without condemnation.. and all because of Jesus.
Father thank You for this liberating truth, May I never again be drawn into wrong thinking about Your Father-heart of love and may I gain greater confidence and understanding of what my position in Christ truly means - this I ask in the precious name of my Lord Jesus Christ - Who died for me that I might be free from any condemnation.. and receive Your unconditional and everlasting love - Praise His holy name,
Lord, how we wonder at Your love for us, in that while we were yet sinners You sent the Lord Jesus Christ to die for our sins - so that in Him we might become Your children and be made the righteous of God, in Him.
Father it staggers the thoughts of our hearts to realise.. that while we were cold and rebellious towards You and and at enmity with God.. that You purposed the glorious plan of redemption in Your heart of love.. that guilty sinners could be declared righteous, through believing on the Lord Jesus Christ - Who died to pay the price for our sins.. with His own life-blood.
Thank You that in Your grace and mercy, Your strong arm of love reached down to me, long before my rebellious heart of stone, turned towards You for healing.
Lord my chief complaint is that my love for You is faint and fragile - a love which seems to be so far removed from the depth of love I desire to have for You. Help me I pray to develop a godly love for You, that is commensurate with the love that You deserve from a sinner such as I - Whom You lifted from the cesspit of sin and chose to save by grace through faith.
Thank You for Your unchanging and unconditional love towards me - and help me more and more to come to a new and deeper understanding of What the Love of God towards me truly means. This I ask in the name of Jesus my Saviour,
Help us never to forget that the safest place in a fallen world is to remain in the center of Your will, no matter where we are, who we are with or what circumstances may seem to be looming on the horizon. I pray that I may stay in the center of your perfect will, each day of my life, and that I may walk worthy of my calling and live in a way that is pleasing to You.
May I learn to walk by faith each moment of the day and not be swayed by sight or feelings or emotions.. and may I learn to trust Your word more and more with each passing day, knowing that without faith it is impossible to please You - for it is my heart's desire that in all I do and say, I may be pleasing in Your sight.
Help me not only to do what is good and acceptable in Your eyes, but help me to speak and think aright. May I live in a right relationship with You, walk humbly before You all the days of my life and I pray that I may develop an attitude of grateful praise and thanksgiving. Help me to water all that I say and do with prayer and may my actions and attitudes be rooted in Your love and surrounded by Your grace.
Oh Lord I pray that the words of my mouth be pleasing and acceptable to You, and that my conversation be always full of grace and seasoned with salt - and grant me wisdom I pray, to know how best to answer everyone with whom I come in contact.. in love but without compromise. This I ask in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord,
O God, I thank Thee for a little insight into the boundless love of God. I thank Thee for the response in my own heart.
I thank Thee for the love of others.
Let my heart praise Thee, O God.
Thank You Father that You have made Yourself known to humanity through the Word of God. But forgive us Lord, for we are a rebellious and prideful race and yet You loved us so much that You sent Your only begotten Son to lay down His sinless life as the perfect sacrifice for our sin.. so that by that death and resurrection, all who believe on Him might not perish, but have everlasting life.
Thank You that in Your love You chose to communicate with us, by the word, by Your holy apostles and prophets and revealed to us Your glorious plan of salvation, so that whoever believes on the Lord Jesus Christ would not be condemned - but whosoever does not believe in the only begotten Son of God is condemned already - because he has not believed on the sinless Son of Your love - Who loved us so much that He willingly went to the cross to redeem us from the penalty of sin, and reconcile us back to You eternal.
Thank You that Your Word to us is like a perfumed love-letter that has been forwarded from heaven to all Your children - in love. Thank You for the truth it contains and thank You for all Your perfect and unconditional love and grace towards Your children. May we assimilate these truths deep within the bowels of our soul and glorify Your name for the unconditional love that You have seen fit to pour our on all Your children..by grace, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ - in Whose name we pray,
