Heavenly Father, how good and gracious You are, and I just want to thank You for this precious gift of another beautiful day placed before me ….
Father, I thank You for every life that has been born from above and is now in union with Christ Jesus our Saviour. Guard and guide each one, and protect their hearts and minds from the deceit and lies that come only from the devil, who is the father of all lies, the great deceiver of men’s souls, the greatest accuser of the brethren, and a murderer from the beginning of time ….
Guide each one I pray into the way of truth and give them wisdom and sound judgement, to recognize the workings of the mystery of iniquity. Remove all semblance of fear and anxieties and bring Your unsurpassable peace to all hearts and minds seeking truth …..
Into Your capable hands I place each blood-bought child of God and pray Your protection on their lives. Give them discernment to choose the good and reject the evil, and may each one come to a deeper knowledge of Christ and develop a thirst to know You more and more, so that individually as believers and collectively as the Church of Christ we may all become intercessors in the faith. I pray that all Your plans and purposes for each of Your children, may be accomplished in each life, to Your praise and glory ….
Heavenly Father, I thank You that in Your Word You have given us all we need to mature in the faith, to grow in grace and to live godly in Christ Jesus. I pray that all Your children may become like new-born babes who cry out in longing, for the pure milk of the Word of God. Develop in each one an insatiable desire to know You more intimately, that we may become of one mind and one accord. Rise up warriors in the body I pray, that will pray and intercede for these babes that will be coming in, and for those not yet strong in their faith or are yet still stumbling and not confidently walking by faith ….
Strengthen each one I pray, knowing that in Christ we can do all things — but may we never forget that without Him at the helm of our lives we can achieve nothing in the spiritual realm ….
Thank You Father that You are able to make all grace abound in the lives of each of Your children, if only we will abide in Christ and walk in spirit and truth, and we pray that in the power of the Holy Ghost You would give us all sufficiency in everything and use us as You choose, in Your service to bless, serve, and pray for others to Your praise and glory ….
Give us all discernment in these worrisome times I pray, so that we may not be carried away by the error of unprincipled men and false doctrines, and prevent us I pray, from falling from our own steadfastness and faith, but enable us to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and into the day of eternity, Amen …
