Father as we recall the steadfast faith and hope in God that so many of the great cloud of witnesses displayed in Hebrews chapter eleven and elsewhere,and we pray that we too may follow their example and place our entire faith in Your precious Word. May we develop an ever deepening trust in You, knowing that Your Word is faithful and true. May we be nourished by the Word of God day by day and be refreshed with rivers of living water that stream into our hearts from above, so that whatsoever we do will be pleasing to the Lord and glorify His name.
Thank You that in Christ we have been forgiven of all our sins and delivered from the power of sin in our lives and may we pass on a trust in the Lord Jesus to our children and children's children, so that in the next generations a living trust in God may be their witness to the world and faith in His word may be a testimony that will also pass on to all their children.
Keep us standing firm in truth of God's Word, that has been delivered to us by our Father in heaven, and keep us stedfast and true to all that we have learned of Your grace and mercy, so that our lives may demonstrate an ever deepening love for You, until that glorious day, when we are take to be with You in heaven - and we will be known as we are known. This we pray in Jesus’ name,
