Thank You Father, that I am positioned in Christ and united in Him – and what a great comfort this is to my heart and soul. Lord I know that I have no right to have received Your amazing grace, for I acknowledge that it is against You alone that I have sinned in thought word and deed.. and yet You saw fit to leave Your heavenly throne and be born into this world of sin, as a little baby.. so that by Your grace and mercy You could stoop down and pick me up, and seat me together with Christ in heavenly places. Love so amazing, so divine demand my soul, my life - my all.
And so I kneel humbly before You and pray that by that same grace You would finish the good work that You started in me, when I trusted the Lord Jesus as my Saviour. I pray that my life may be a reflection of HIm and that the deep humility, meekness and goodness that was so evident throughout His entire life may be reflected in me.
I pray that like Jesus I may learn obedience, even if it means having to experience suffering and pain. And Father, I pray that like Him I may act justly, love mercy and to walk humbly with You.. all the days of my life, to Your praise and glory, and in Jesus name I pray,
