Heavenly Father, thank You that I have been saved by grace and declared righteous in Your sight, through faith in the Lord Jesus. Thank You that if I confess my sin to You, You are faithful and just to forgive me and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I pray that I would not seek to justify my wrongdoings or try to blame others for my sinful actions. Help me to fly to Your throne of grace for the mercy and forgiveness that is promised to all who trust in You. Thank You for Your plan of redemption that gives every man and woman the opportunity to turn to You for the forgiveness of sin and life everlasting. How I praise You for your loving-kindness and great compassion towards Adam's fallen race and I pray that I live my life to honour you, in all I do and say. In Jesus' name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Psalm 51:5
Heavenly Father, we know that every good and perfect gift comes from You and that children are a special heritage from the Lord. But Father, we also know that the enemy of our soul seeks to kill and destroy all that is from You, and especially the lives of little babies in the womb.
And so we lift up all women who may be planning to have an abortion, or who have been deceived into thinking that this is a woman’s right, rather than a sin against their creator God, and we pray that You would create in their hearts a desire to do what is right and a realisation of the evil that surrounds the practice of abortion, that they themselves are considering
Bring into the life of each mother those that would give godly counsel and change the hearts of those who have already made a decision to go down the route of abortion.
Instil in the heart of each woman a deep love for the baby they are carrying, and we pray that many may be prompted to turn from their planned abortion and look to the Lord Jesus, for the grace do what is right. This we ask in Jesus' name,
Lord Jesus, it says in Your Word, examine Yourself to see it you are in the faith. Lord, I realise that this is not talking to unbelievers but to all of us who are Your children in Christ Jesus. Lord, help me to examine myself, and all that I am learning from You and Your Word, so that I truly may say with conviction, "I know in Whom I have believed and am walking in the path on which He has placed me."
Keep me also from critical thoughts of others, and prevent me Lord, from having a spirit of control, or by pretending to hold others accountable to You, when the beam in my own eye is greater than the speck that is in my brothers’ eye. Keep me humble before Your throne of grace.
Thank You for all my Christian friends and family. Keep us all walking close to You in the days that lie ahead. In Jesus' name I pray,
