LET’S PRAY

Abba Father, we thank you for giving us another day to sit in your presence and meditate on your words. Lord, how blessed is this time that we get to spend with you, receiving grace from your throne and wisdom from the counselling of thy Holy Spirit. Abba, let us never forget who we belong to. We belong to you. We are your sheep and you are our Shepherd. We listen to your voice, the voice that we hear when we sit in thy presence , despite all the chaos around us . Father, may we love your words, may the words be inscribed in our hearts that we might not sin against you . May your words show us light in the darkness and may we wield it as the double edged sword to defeat the forces of the enemy. Lord, may we build our lives on Christ the Rock, our solid foundation ; on Jesus Christ, the Word that became Flesh . Help us understand that you have chosen us before time ,that we are called to be the temple of God , to be heirs to your eternal kingdom . Heavenly Father, help us draw closer to you each passing day of our lives. May our iniquities be removed when we repent our sins and accept your grace, the grace that enables us to be partakers of every good thing in Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour. Abba, help us to draw closer to you by trusting in your everlasting faithfulness, in your mercy and grace and justice. Help us to uphold your truth in our lives .Help us to strengthen our lives and hearts by following what is righteous and just in your eyes. Help us to remember that the Lord our God is the one who weighs our hearts and our motives and nothing escapes his eyes. Help us to remember that our God is a Mighty Warrior and he would not sit still until his complete justice is brought forth and when he does it, he would not hold back the least bit. So we thank you for your never ending patience with our human race and for the mercy that you have shown to all of us your children, who chose to stray away from your righteous path and caused you pain. Lord, let us never forget who we belong to. May we always remember the great love that has ransomed us and redeemed us . Father, help us, your children ,in discerning the voices that we hear, through the continuous work of Holy Spirit in our lives. May our hungry hearts be satiated by your sweet words and may we always choose to walk with the One who will bring us to true safety and eternal salvation. Praise be to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and for always .In the mighty name of Jesus we pray. Amen .

DAY 8

VERSE OF THE DAY

And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, and said, Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.  Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me .

Reference – THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW : Chapter 18 Verses 2-5 (NASB)

LET’S PRAY

Abba Father, thank you for giving us another beautiful day in our life .We are your children and we come to you. Bless us Lord and lead us in your path . Teach us your ways Father , for your ways are higher than ours , and your thoughts about us are higher than the thoughts we have for ourselves. We praise you dear Father because we have this assurance in you. Father, give us the heart of a little child; innocent, simple, humble and trusting heart . A heart that is completely dependent on you , a heart which completely trusts in you and is obedient to you . A heart devoid of crookedness and malice, a heart that waits upon your righteousness and justice . In this world we have many worries and confusions, many fears and challenges; amidst all these , Abba Father, help us your children to put our trust blindly in you . May we never waver when facing all the waves and storms that are raging against us because of the comfort of the knowledge that we are held safely in the arms of our Mighty Father . Abba Father, help us to always remember that it is good for us, your children, to humble ourselves in your presence and seek your will in everything we do in our lives. Abba, may we always understand that like a good father , you fill us with your choicest blessings; your peace ,joy and love. Help us to understand that your plans for us are to prosper us ; to give us hope and a future. Let us never forget that, like a good father ,you discipline your children, yet your gracious love and compassion never fails. Abba, thank you for your never ending love for us. Just like little children, may we rest in your care , protection and providence. You are the Father God who knew us before we were formed in our Mother’s womb . You call each one of us by our name and you care about the minutest details of our lives, even the hairs on our heads are numbered. Father, let us never go astray from your deep love. Never let the evil one deceive us with his lies, so that we lose vision of your loving arms that are always stretched towards us. Help us remember that you are always waiting for us and all we need to do is to run into your embrace. Abba, may we never hurt your precious heart intentionally by our arrogance and pride . May we not be ignorant and foolish because of the lies that we choose to believe in , by not listening to your voice. Father, give us this deep thirst to search for the living waters that is found only in you. Give us the wisdom to understand that our Heavenly Father is the ultimate source of everything that is good . May we quench our thirst from your eternal streams of grace and mercy. Abba , may we grow in your love and share this love with all our beloved brothers and sisters , as we help each other and be a souce of support in Christ in this journey to our eternal home. May we hold onto you tightly knowing that you are our dearest father who will never abandon us. We thank you for your love , for this precious gift of life. Bless us and guide us dear Heavenly Father. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
