Loving Lord and heavenly Father I do thank You for the family of Christ into which You have placed me and the loving fellowship that we enjoy together. As we study Your word and seek to encourage each other in our little gatherings, Lord I pray that the Word of Christ would dwell in us richly.
Help each of us to be willing to learn and also recognise the need to be accountable to each other as well as to You, as we seek to grow in grace corporately. Bless those that You have seen fit to equip each of us and `i pray that those who have been graced with the gift of teacher may motivate us all to be willing learners of You.
Lord I know that one day I will stand before Your Bema judgement seat and I long to hear You say, “well done good and faithful servant,” – Father I pray that in the days that I have ahead You will draw me close to Yourself so that I will not be found wanting on that glorious day when we stand in Your presence – face to face with You Lord,
Thank You in Jesus name
