Heavenly Father, thank You that Christ came to earth to become my Saviour. Thank You that He did not come to please Himself but was prepared to say: Thy will be done, even when He faced the cross, knowing that it was only by His death that we can have life. Lord we pray Your mercy on those that have been blinded to the truth by the enemy of our soul and pray that even today, many would come to faith in Christ and discover that in Him is life and light for evermore.. in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, we praise and thank You for the Word of God and the wonderful truths it contains. Thank You for not only unveiling Your gracious character and eternal goodness to us through Your Word.. but that it was written to instruct us on how to live and to teach us all that You would have us learn. Help me to live in this fallen world with patient endurance as I look to Jesus and thank You for the glorious hope I have in Christ Jesus my Lord. Praise His holy name.. for it is in Him alone that we have a blessed hope, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are a good and faithful God, Who keeps His promises to the children of men. Thank You that Jesus set aside His exalted glory and was born into the Jewish race, as prophesied of old. He came as Israel’s Servant-King, knowing He would not be received by His own people, but would suffer rejection, humiliation, and death at their hands. Thank You that by Christ’s life, death, and Resurrection, You have proved to Israel, the Church, and the Gentile nations, that You are a God Who is faithful to His promises, and Whose holy Word stands fast forever and ever. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Loving Father, my heart rejoices as I realise the depth of love You have for me. You truly are my glorious God of Hope, and I thank You that this is not the doubtful 'hope' of the world, but a definite hope that is securely founded on Your unchangeable Word. Enable me to share this truth with those with whom I come in contact today, to Your praise and glory. In Christ's name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing ministry of the apostle Paul and the example he set of a life that is wholly committed, in word and deed, to Christ Jesus our Lord. Help me to be a living sacrifice that honours Your name and may the Word of Christ dwell richly within my being in all wisdom and teaching. Keep me low at the Cross and broken before You, and fulfil in my life the work that You have prepared for me to do. This I ask in the name of Christ Jesus, my Lord, for Your honour and glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the many insights into powerful, purposeful, and persistent prayer, and the wisdom in joining with prayer partners for specific needs. Thank You that You are a God Who not only answers prayer but uses our prayer life to increase our faith, draw us closer to Yourself, and join with others in pleading for Your answers. Help me in my prayer life to strive together with other believers when important issues impact our lives, and may our prayers reflect Your perfect will for the salvation of the lost and the growth of our faith. Thank You that we have continuous access to Your throne of grace for mercy to find help in time of need, and may I use this great privilege to forward Your purposes in my life and for Your greater praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are the God of peace Who sent Jesus to be our perfect Prince of peace and the great Shepherd of the sheep Who is coming to bring in a time of peace and prosperity to men of goodwill and to rule the world in righteousness and truth. I pray that as the day for Christ's return draws ever closer, You would draw near to all Your children so that our joy may be perfected in Him and we would all be drawn together in the unity of the Spirit, with one heart and mind. Establish Your peace in our heart for Your greater praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
