Heavenly Father, thank You for revealing the mystery of the Church through Paul and opening up the light of the glorious gospel Christ to all who believe in Christ Jesus as Saviour. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, for using the prophets of old to tell me what was going to happen before it happened so I would believe. Thank You for reaching out to me and to all mankind with the gospel of Jesus Christ, Who died for my sins and rose again the third day to break the power of sin and death in my life. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, for Jesus. Thank You that He came from His home in heaven and set aside His glory for a season, to live a perfect life and to die a substitutional death so that in Him, I might believe and have life eternal. All praise to His name, AMEN.
Thank You, Lord, for Your grace toward us who were dead in trespasses and sins, but who have now been brought near by the death and Resurrection of Christ. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Thank You, Lord, for pouring out the gospel of grace through Paul to me. I pray that through an understanding of this glorious gospel of grace and peace, I may remain obedient to Your Word, until my life's end. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am also, "the called" of Jesus Christ, by grace through faith in Him. Keep me low at the Cross and willing to say, "Thy will be done in my life." In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how I thank You for the good news of the gospel of Christ and the truth it has revealed, so that by faith in Christ I have been redeemed by His precious blood and become beloved of God and called to be set apart to Your praise and glory. May Your equipping grace and perfect peace pour through me to others, so that the love of Christ may be shed abroad to the honour of Your name. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am a new creation in Christ and that You have placed me in the corner of Your vineyard, for Your good pleasure, and gifted me in the work that You would have me to do. Keep me from imagining that I am the only real labourer You have called to witness and work to Your praise and glory. Help me to rejoice in the work that you are doing in the lives of so many believers in so many ways. Help me to be an encouragement to other saints in the work in I do and the words I say - to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, develop in me a deep and earnest Christ-like love for all my brothers and sisters in Christ. May I love them, support them, and pray for them always. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN..
Heavenly Father, how blessed we are to be part of the wider family of God and thank You for the epistle to the Romans and the comprehensive and structured exposition of every aspect of our Christian faith. Help me to understand and apply all the truth that it contains, and give me a desire to pray for my brothers and sisters in Christ, that we may all grow in grace and in a knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Thank You for Paul's example whose dear desire was to remain in the centre of Your perfect will. I pray that like Him I may be ready and willing to pray 'Thy will be done' in every area of my life - to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that we are all members of Your body and that each one has been given gifts and graces that are to be used appropriately. Help us to live according to Your Word and to use our gifts and graces for the mutual encouragement of our brothers and sisters in Christ. May we all grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus, as we see the day of His return grow ever closer. This I ask, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Father, I pray that, like Paul, I will boldly proclaim the gospel of Christ to all with whom I come in contact. Only in Him is there life and light, hope and love. I know that the gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation, to all who believe on Him Who died and rose from the dead. To Him be all praise and glory, world without end, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the glorious gospel of Christ. Thank You that the righteousness of God has been revealed in the Cross, where Christ suffered the punishment for my sins and paid the price for my redemption with His holy and precious blood. Thank You that I am saved by grace through faith in Christ. Lord, I want to live my life by faith and grow in grace from one degree of faith to the next, until Christ is formed in me. My life is not my own, for I have been bought with a price. I pray that my life may be lived by faith, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the witness of nature, the witness within, and the witness of Your written Word. Lord, thank You that You will send Your wrath against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of man. And praise You, that You made a way for us all to escape that wrath. You loved the world so much, that You sent Jesus to be the propitiation for the sins of all who believe on the name of the only begotten Son of God. Thank You that His death satisfied You as payment for my sins. All praise, and glory, and honour to You. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the two witnesses of creation and conscience that speak so clearly of Your great glory and the wonder of Your works. I pray that I will never lose that wonder of Who You are, as I reflect on Your mighty, creative acts. And I pray that my conscience will ever be tender toward You. May I respond to the inner promptings of Your Spirit when I am tempted to sin, and help me to become increasingly conscious of Your leading and guiding within. Thank You that You sent Your only begotten Son to die for me so that I might live. Help me to live as You would have me live, in utter dependence upon You, with self nailed to the Cross. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how I praise You for the mighty works of Your hand, and for the many evidences of Your invisible attributes, eternal power, and divine nature. I pray that I may come to know You more intimately, love You more dearly, and grow more and more like my Saviour Jesus Christ Who gave His life as a ransom for many, including me. To You belongs all honour and glory, might, majesty, dominion, and power, forever and ever, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, the world is becoming increasingly evil, and the rejection of Your gracious offer of salvation, by faith in Jesus Christ, seems to have saturated this fallen world. But You are a God of mercy and grace, Who is not willing that ANY should perish, but that all should come to repentance and faith in Christ. Thank You that every man has the free-will to accept Your offer of salvation, by trusting in Jesus, Who died so that they might live. I pray that many, who are in the valley of decisions, would turn to Christ and trust in You today, for the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting, and use me I pray, to touch the lives of some with the good news of the gospel of God. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing book of Romans and the clear way that it explains, step-by-step, the depravity of fallen man and consequences of sin. It also tells in detail, that our sins are forgiven by grace through faith in Christ, and how we may live in the power of the indwelling Spirit. I pray that many whose eyes are blinded to the truth, whose consciences have been seared, and whose foolish hearts have bought into Satan's deception, will turn from their wicked ways and call out to Christ for the forgiveness of their sins and life everlasting. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the three-fold witness to the truth of Your Word and for loving me enough to send the Lord Jesus Christ to come to earth as a man and to die on the Cross that I might be saved. I pray for those who are changing the truth of God's Word into a lie, and are serving the creature more than the Creator. Please bring them into a saving knowledge of the truth before it is too late. Thank You, in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for revealing Your glory to me through Your creation. Thank You for making man in Your image and likeness, and for supplying me with my God-given, innate sense of goodness and justice, so that I may understand right from wrong and choose to do what is good, in the power of the Holy Spirit. But thank You most of all, for sending the Lord Jesus to be my Kinsman Redeemer, to pay the price for my sins, and for receiving the punishment that I justly deserve. Keep me ever mindful of Your goodness and grace toward me and all the children of men. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
