“A Prayer To The Only Door Of Salvation”

February 20, 2018
Thankful man Father, the majority of people avoid walking through the door of salvation that You provide through Christ Jesus, the Shepherd of our souls. They rely on good works, generous giving, religion, and other means by which they might attain eternal life. But You have made it abundantly clear in the Scriptures and through the teachings of Christ, that the only way we can be reconciled to You, Father, is through Christ Jesus, who is the door to salvation. We thank You for sending Your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to be the Lamb who was slain for sinners such as I. Amen.

“A Prayer For Following He Who Has Overcome”

February 19, 2018

Thankful manFather, there are many trials and tribulations that we face here on earth. It seems we get over one hurdle only to face another, but we are comforted when we remember that we are not alone in our trials, nor are we the only ones to face difficulty. The greatest test and the greatest triumph were both present at the death and resurrection of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ who overcame death and the grave. Help us to remember there is no triumph if there is no test. We take courage when we undergo testings and tribulation when our minds are focused on Jesus, not the trouble at hand. Keep me true, Lord Jesus, keep me true. There’s a race that I must run and victories to be won. Give me power, every hour, to be true. Amen.

“A Prayer For Those Who Love God”

Thankful man Father, we know that You are a faithful God, keeping Your covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love You and keep Your commandments. Your love is so abundant that You not only have provided for our physical needs but also our spiritual need of salvation. We have not seen, nor have we heard and our mind has not fully conceived of the things You have prepared for us but we look with anticipation to the time when we will receive all that You have promised to those who love You.

Thankful man Father, hear our earnest prayer this day. May You, the supreme example of persevering love, help us to daily nurture our love and loyalty in human relationships.

“A Prayer For Love In The Family”

February 13, 2018

Thankful man Father, the Psalms tell us that You set the lonely in families. We’re thankful for a setting where we are loved, protected and provided for by those you ordained to be our blood family. All too often we take them for granted, grumble about our differences in habits and opinions, and speak hurtful words that wound their spirit. Remind us through the example of Esau and Jacob that we lose a great deal when we bicker and go our separate ways from those we should love the most. We pray for our readers today, if there is a need for reconciliation, that they will make the call, send the card, or pay a visit and lovingly embrace their loved one. We never know how much time we have on this side or our loved one for that matter, so we must make the most of every opportunity to be there for those who matter most. Amen.

“A Prayer For Brotherly Love”

February 12, 2018

Thankful man Father, may we be people who are quick to notice the ways in which we can be of special blessing to others. It seems quite easy when it comes to those whom we befriend. We often recognize their need before they express it and find genuine fulfillment in being Your hand extended to them. But You challenge us to go even further in making ourselves available to our enemies with whom it is not natural to provide for their needs. In expressing agapé to those around us we love in spite of what we see or have experienced. May all that we do on behalf of others be an expression of Your heavenly touch extended through Christian human service. It is in Your strength and compassion that we can do that which is unnatural to our human flesh, but natural to our redeemed spirit. Amen.

“A Prayer For Honoring The Bible”

February 9, 2018

Thankful man Father, I am thankful for the inspiration of the Holy Scriptures that provides an objective and accurate guide for every season of my life. The Bible is a lamp unto my feet and a light for the path that lies before me. It teaches, convicts, corrects, and trains me in the ways of godliness. Though many will choose other authorities to guide their lives, I choose Your Holy Book to equip me for the works You’ve called me to do in Your name. I rely on its inspired texts to sustain me in my lifetime commitment to walk in Your ways, for Jesus Himself declared, “I am the Way.” Amen.

“A Prayer For Overcoming Fear”

February 8, 2018

Thankful man Father, we learn in Scripture that perfect love casts out fear. Since we’re born into an imperfect world and surrounded by sinful consequences from the fall it’s hard to acquire and remain in perfect love. We find fear ever beckoning and perfect love seemingly far off. But the Word tells us not to fear since it involves expected divine punishment and we know there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Dreadful fear comes from the enemy but perfect love comes from heaven above. We cast fear into the fire and receive the perfect love that You give so generously, as seen in the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

“A Prayer For Deep Spiritual Roots”

February 7, 2018

Thankful man Father, we are so very grateful that our family roots are not the sole source of who we are nor does it dictate what we can accomplish. Our spiritual roots, because of our well-grounded faith in You, goes much deeper and spreads much broader. We are able to accomplish the impossible and overcome life’s difficulties because our roots are connected to the Miracle Worker. May the living water flowing from Your Spirit quench our thirst and the spiritual food from Your inspired Holy Word satisfy our hunger causing us to grow in spiritual maturity so that we remain safe and secure, firmly rooted in You. Father, though the winds and storms may shake us from time to time, it is in You that we live and move and have our being! Amen.
