We praise you for using us to bring joy to your Son, Jesus Christ and giving us the faith to please You as well. In the midst of all the struggles, pressures, and discouragement we tend to face while in our frail, failing bodies, please continue transforming us into servants who are always submitted to Your will, Your direction and guidance.
Lead us by your Holy Spirit to find rest in the grand promises and assurances that you’ve revealed to us in your Living Word. We confess that we are weak and that we need your constant help. We confess that our flesh is at constant war with our spirit, but please prepare us for the day when we will stand before You, ready to give an account of all our service to You and to others.
Heavenly Father, though we do not deserve your grace, for there is absolutely no way we can earn it, still we cannot even begin to express our gratitude for nailing our guilt and shame upon the cross through your crucified Son and then gifting us with the abiding presence of His/Your Holy Spirit.
Lord, we earnestly long to experience the moment when you will declare to us, “Well done good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your master.” We can only begin to imagine the joys that you have gone ahead to prepare for those of us whom You call heirs to Your Kingdom.
Help us this week as we continue our walk of faith, the one way You have said in Your Word that we can please You by, and help us to look forward to that day when our faith will become no more hope but an actual realization.
We ask You boldly and confidently and yet humbly, in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son and our Redeemer. Amen and AMEN!
