Heavenly Father, thank You for Paul's detailed discourse on the past history, present status and future hope for Your people Israel. Thank You for the many members of the Jewish race who have already believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and been saved, and we pray that many more would have their blindness removed and recognise Him as their Saviour and King. We pray that Christendom's current, unbiblical teaching of 'replacement theology' would be halted, which fuel's anti-Semitic hatred and thank You that the day is coming when You will bring Your plans and purposes to completion, as outlined in Scripture, - and Christ is crowned as King of kings - this we pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for sending the Lord Jesus Christ to be the end of the Law to all who trust in Him as Saviour. I confess that of myself I can do no good thing, but praise Your holy name that I can do all things through Christ, Who has become my righteousness, and in Whose name I pray. AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Your only begotten Son came to earth to die on the cross and to rise again so that all who believe in Him.. both Jew and Gentile alike, would not perish but have everlasting life. Thank You that You have not forgotten Your people Israel, and thank You that all who confess that Jesus is Lord - the eternal God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel and believe in their heart that He rose from the dead will not perish but have everlasting life. Thank you Father.. and in Jesus' name that I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, there is much that I do not understand about the Word of God and much that I need to be taught - but I pray that the Holy Spirit would guide me into all truth. Keep me from being swayed away from the truth of the glorious gospel of grace, into a distorted gospel, by those that show religious zeal, religious ignorance, religious intolerance or religious arrogance. Help me to study to show myself approved unto God, and give me the wisdom and the humility to seek You, when I do not understand. Open my eyes, I pray, so that I may see wonderful things in Your written Word - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how we thank You for this beautiful truth, that whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Thank You for Your perfect plan of salvation.. for You know that we are incapable of saving ourselves through the works of the Law - but praise Your holy name that You sent Jesus to be our Salvation - to die on the cross in our place and to rise again the third day, so that whosever calls on His name will be saved - thank You in the name of Jesus, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, there are multitudes of souls in the world today that remain dead in their trespasses and sins. Thank You that You have given me all I need for life and godliness - I ask that You would use me to share the good news of Christ with others, and pray that You would send more labourers into the harvest-fields of the world, and bring many souls to saving faith in Jesus, in Whose name I pray AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the book of Romans and the clearly presented message of the gospel of grace by which sinful man may be reconciled back to God.. by faith in the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross. Help me to speak the truth - in love, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
Heavenly Father, thank You for the people who told me about Jesus. Thank You for those that taught me that I was a sinner in need of salvation, which only comes through the sacrificial death of Christ on my behalf. Thank You for all who have proclaimed the message of Christ (the incarnate, quickening, living Word of God) in my hearing. May my feet be shod with the beautiful message of peace with God by grace - through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word and the truth that it contains. Thank You that the message of Salvation is clearly set out and that it is by grace through faith and not by works of the Law that we are saved. Thank You that You have not rejected Your people Israel, but that You have graciously included the gentile Church into Your plan of salvation - praise Your holy name, AMEN.
