Loving Father, thank You for choosing me and bringing me into Your family as part of the body of Christ. Thank You that in Christ I have all I need, for He is my joy and He is my strength and He is my wisdom and He is my coming bridegroom. I praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the beautiful love-story between the Shulamite woman and the Shepherd-King of Israel. Thank You for the many lessons we can learn and the importance of keeping our first-love alive and watching, expectantly and excitedly for His soon return. Thank You that there has always been a little remnant of believers (the Israel of God), who down through centuries of time have trusted Your word and remained faithful to the truth of the glorious gospel of God. We praise Your name that we are positioned in Christ and protected by His love, and thank You that Your promises to Israel remain faithful and true... and that He will one day spread His banner of love over them, when they recognise Him as their Shepherd-King - their God and their Saviour. We offer these prayers in the matchless name of Jesus Christ, our Shepherd and Saviour, AMEN.
Dear heavenly Father, thank You that I am Your child and accepted in the Beloved. Help me to be prepared for His any day return to take me to be with Himself at the appointed time - when the trumpet shall sound and the Lord Jesus shall descend from heaven, to take His bride to be with Himself forever. Praise Your holy name, AMEN
