Thanks For Reconciliation With God

I rejoice and thank You Father that I have peace with You through our Lord Jesus Christ and have wonderful access to Your amazing gift of grace – through simply believing on the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank You that although I was far away from You and wallowing in my sin and disobedience, I have been brought close to You Father, through the precious blood of my Jesus Christ –my Saviour. It is a thing most wonderful to know that through the cross of Christ the hostility that I had with You Lord, has been removed and I have been reconciled back to God and have not only become a a citizen of heaven along with all who trust in Christ Jesus and have been made a member of God’s household but also His beloved child and joint-heir with Christ Himself – There are no words sufficient for the thanks that I give You and pray that I may worship You for ever and ever.

I glorify Your wonderful name that there is now no condemnation and that my reconciliation with God almighty is both permanent and eternal – for the wrath of God was poured out upon the innocent life of the Lord Jesus – Who took my place, so that I could be brought back into fellowship with You – and reconciled with God.

Praise Your wonderful name for ever and ever and ever,

Amen and Amen
“For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Reconciliation for an Estranged Wife

Dear Father God, I am so distressed because my wife of many years has walked out on me, intending to carve out a future without me. Oh Lord, she is my wife and I love her so dearly but we are now estranged from each other and my life is falling apart without her.

I need You Lord, to uphold me with Your gracious right hand and pray that in Your time and Your way You would reconcile our differences and enable us to move forward with greater love and understanding than we had before.

Forgive me Lord for the part that I played in causing this estrangement between us to develop – without recognising the signs that were happening. Lord I was not the husband I could have been – of should have been… and though there were faults on both sides, I pray that You will help us to reconcile the difficulties between us and bring us back together and reunite us in love again. Lord that I may learn to love as You loved us – knowing that love suffers long and in kind – and thinks for the other.. Help me Lord to be the husband I should be – and bring us back into each other arms I pray…

Thank You Lord for hearing my prayer,

“And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.”
(Romans 5:11)

Eternal Gratitude For the Free Grace of God

Loving heavenly Father, how my heart bows before You in humble and sincere gratitude for all the many blessings that You have bestowed upon me – for the life that You have given me and the way that You have sustained me and cared for me, for which I offer You my grateful thanks. `

Thank You for my family and friends, my community and church and all the wonderful ways that You have led and guided us through both the joyful times and the difficult seasons of life.

Thank You for the wonderful world into which we have been placed and the beauties that surround us - the sea and the sky and the hills and the valleys – for all the delights that You have placed in our lives in such abundance.

Thank You most of all for sending us the Lord Jesus to die on the cross so save us from our sins – covering us with His own perfect righteousness and raising us up to sit with Him in heavenly places, when we deserve nothing but punishment. Lord we are not worthy to untie Your shoe-laces and yet in Your great grace and mercy You have freely given us all things to richly enjoy. Words cannot express the gratitude that is in my heart. Help me Lord to be the person You would have me be.. in Jesus name I pray,
