Heavenly Father, we praise and thank You that You have given us Your Word and that in it we have all we need for life and godliness. Give us discernment to recognise and renounce false teachers and unbiblical doctrine - and help us to hold fast to that which is good and wholesome and which is consistent with sound teaching. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the instructions that are found within Your Word. Thank You for those older people that You placed in my life.. to give me wise advice and sound teachings and I pray that as I too get older.. You will use me to be a source of help and encouragement to those that are younger in years. Give me sound wisdom and understanding of Your word.. and the ability to be used by You to admonish and instruct others as You see fit, in humility and grace. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for our mothers and the women that have influenced us in godly living and virtuous behaviour. We pray, that in the increasingly difficult days in which we live, both women and men would seek to live godly in Christ Jesus, in the power of the Holy Spirit - so that Your word would not be dishonoured in our lives, and others would be attracted to the beauty of Christ, through our living testimony. This we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You have clearly laid out Your divinely instituted roles and responsibilities in our homes; marriages; churches and the wider community. Help me to develop a godly attitude in my own home and marriage... my church fellowship and neighbourhood, and help me to apply the godly principles and biblical teachings You have given us on life and godliness, for Your praise and glory. May my life be a living testimony, both at home and abroad, to Your wisdom and grace ..this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the life testimony of people like Paul and Titus, whose faith in the Lord Jesus became so much a part of the fabric of their lives, that they became a living testimony to the gospel of grace. May my life also be a true testimony of good deeds, pure doctrine, sound speech and a worthy pattern of godly behaviour, for Your eternal praise – and may others see the love and grace of Jesus in me, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your unfathomable grace in sending Jesus to bring Salvation to a lost and dying race - and thank You for redeeming ME. Give me a deeper understanding of what Your amazing grace has accomplished in my life.. and may I live to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the important instructions we receive from Your holy word, as we progress through the college of Christian living. I pray that I may deny ungodliness and disengage myself from any worldly pursuits or fleshly attitudes, and pray that I may diligently seek to live sensibly, righteously and godly in this present age - this I ask Jesus name, and for His greater praise and glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what glorious grace You have poured out on me and all who believe in Jesus Christ's finished word at Calvary. Thank You for my salvation. Thank You that I have been redeemed with the precious blood of Christ. Thank You that I have been imputed with His prefect righteousness and His abundant life. Thank You that I have been redeemed from sin and lawlessness and been baptised into the body of Christ, so that together we may become a people for His own possession - eager to be used by You ...until it is not I that live in this body but Christ Who lives in me, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
