My Father and my Mighty God, I thank You for waking me up this morning, blessings received and blessings on their way. I ask You for forgiveness of sins, whether they be of thoughts, words or deeds and also Your assistance to overcome.
Today, may I stand corrected, as Your Ambassador. Wake up every gift within and prepare me for the race, road and life ahead. I set myself ready for the new day before me. May every crooked way be made straight and may I remain an example to all those I come across. I thank You for Your promise of neither leaving nor forsaking me, so I can rest assured that, whatsoever and whoever I come across, You will be there; I need not fear. I have been called to carry out Your Great Commission; showing others that You are The Way, The Truth and The Life. Forgive me for moments where I have not been a good example but have halted anyone from coming to know You, because of things I may have said and/or done. May it have a reverse affect and they realise that You are a forgiving God; all our sins are as far from us as the east is from the west. All we need to do is earnestly request forgiveness and we are forgiven and set free. I realise that every word and deed, seen by the world, is able to have a ripple effect so, I pray, that I will always have that in the forefront of my mind. May I positively affect the lives of family, friends, those online, in my neighbourhood and anyone else I come across. May I run a fair race, be found worthy of the prize and lead many to do the same.
As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from usPsalm 103:12 (AMP)
The Great Commission
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated.
17 And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted [that it was really He].
18 Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.”Matthew 28:16 (AMP
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run [their very best to win], but only one receives the prize? Run [your race] in such a way that you may seize the prize and make it yours!
25 Now every athlete who [goes into training and] competes in the games is disciplined and exercises self-control in all things. They do it to win a crown that withers, but we [do it to receive] an imperishable [crown that cannot wither].1 Corinthians 9:24 (AMP)
12 For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.Hebrews 4:12 (AMP)
20 Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),
21 Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages).
Amen (So be it)Hebrews 13:20-21 (AMPC)
