Father in Heaven, Holy is Your Name. Today I offer to You my body soul and spirit as a
living sacrifice. May it be pleasing in Your sight according to the faith entrusted me. I
know that without it, it is impossible to please You. I Believe that You are God my Father
and You reward those who diligently seek You.
Father, I look to the faith of Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Sarah who
all died in faith confessing that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth and were
looking toward a heavenly country and a holy city which has foundations, whose builder
and maker is God.
Father, I realize that the faith of these and many other forefathers and mothers, was
tested and they acted in faith accordance to Your promises and not their circumstances.
Many of them suffered a great price for acting in the faith and yet obtained a good
testimony even though they did not live to see it because it was Your will that they
should not be made perfect apart from us. Continue reading

Father, today I thank You for sending Jesus who left His place in heaven for you and
humbled himself in obedience to You to do Your will. And that by doing so, He took away
the first covenant and established the second so that by it I have been sanctified
through His body that was offered up as a pleasing sacrifice for the forgiveness of my
sins once and for all.
Thank You that after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, He sat down at Your
right hand and is to this day, waiting till His enemies are made His footstool.
Thank You that through His one offering He has perfected forever me and my fellow
brothers and sisters who are being sanctified.
Thank You that the Holy Spirit my Helper, witnesses to me that You have put Your laws
in my heart and written them in my mind and have remembered my sins and lawless
deeds no more.
Today I enter in with reverent boldness to Your holiest place by the blood of Jesus and
draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith.
My heart is sprinkled from an evil conscience and my body washed with pure water by a
new and living way which You consecrated for me, through the veil which is Jesus’ flesh.
I thank You that He is the High Priest over me and all of Your house and I will hold fast
to my confession of my hope without wavering because You have promised and You are
faithful to keep your promises. Continue reading

Father, I come to Your throne of mercy today in Jesus Name. I desire to enter into your
rest today. Help me Father to be diligent to enter in and not fall according to the
example of disobedience of those that perished in the wilderness.
Your Word is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword. It pierces to
the division of my soul and spirit and the joints and marrow of my being and discerns
the thoughts and intents of my heart. There is nothing hidden from Your sight and all my
ways are naked and open to Your eyes and I am accountable to You.
I thank You that I have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus
Christ the Son of God and I make my confession of faith in Him and come boldly to Your
throne of grace to obtain the mercy and grace I so desperately need today.
Father, I am ashamed to admit that I have become dull in hearing and though by this
time I ought to be teaching, I need to be taught again of the first principles of the oracles
of God and have come to need milk and not solid food. Continue reading

inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, that is reserved
in heaven for me and that I am protected by the power of God through faith for a
salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Continue reading

Father in heaven, Holy is Your Name.
Help me to pay much closer attention to what I have heard, so that I won’t drift away
from it. Help me not to neglect so great a salvation which You have provided for me in
Your Son Jesus.
You have subjected all things to him and left nothing that is not subject to him, You
made him a little lower than the angels and because of the suffering of death was
crowned with glory and honor. By Your grace He tasted death for me to bring me and
many sons to glory that through sufferings He is the perfect author and finisher of my
salvation. Continue reading

Holy Heavenly Father, My Lord and My God, In Jesus Name, as a family, I proclaim as Joshua did, when the children of Israel entered the promise land, that as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord! In doing so we humbly bow our hearts before You and proclaim Jesus as both Lord and Savior over us. We confess our sins and ask for forgiveness and that You would search our hearts, know our ways and cleanse us from any wickedness and unrighteousness.  We ask for Your grace, mercy and lovingkindness over us and for power in the Holy Spirit. Teach us to pray and how to pray and make supplication according to Your Word for Your glory and for our sake as a family – Amen!

 

Holy Heavenly Father, Blessed be You God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, just as You chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. In Your Son Jesus we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. In Him we have trusted, after we heard the word of truth, the gospel of our salvation; in whom also, having believed, we were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory. – Amen! (Ephesians 1:3-14)

 

Holy Heavenly Father, our Lord and our God and of our Lord Jesus Christ, Father of glory, I ask in the Name of Jesus that You would give us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, that the eyes of our understanding would be enlightened; that we would know what is the hope of Your calling to us in Christ Jesus, what are the riches of the glory of Christ’s inheritance in us as saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of Your power toward us who believe, according to the working of Your mighty power and grace in Christ Jesus our Lord, which is the same power that raised Him from the dead and seated Him at Your right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. – Amen! (Ephesians 1:17-21)
