Almighty Father, I give You all glory, honour, thanks and praise. I thank You for waking me up in my right mind and ready to face another day: a day which I know is where You are the Author and Finisher, so I put all trust in You.
Today, as I observe this week unfold, I put my full focus on the meaning of being blessed and knowing You. I am aware that all I ever need is within You; hope, peace, joy, love, comfort, forgiveness, refreshing and so much more. All is freely given and freely received. I, therefore, pray in the name of Your Son, Yeshua HaMashiach, that every thought, word and deed will be directed by You and a revelation received. Once received, I pray that I will be empowered to share Your gospel, which is the Good News that all should know. Many of us do not know what true love is, so find it hard to comprehend, but my prayer is that we will truly know You, Your love, what You have done and the full power of Your resurrection; from the depths of our hearts, spirits and souls. Once we understand the complexities of true love we can show it to our fellow man; husbands, wives, brothers, sisters and colleagues and make this world a much better prepared place. May we remember that we are sometimes the only representation of You, that a person may come across. Ignite us within, so we may know, and tell others, that we cannot be without You to survive. May the things You plant in our spirits today, remain rooted within and help us as we go forward; strengthened to do Your will. May each step we take be always pointed forwards and upwards to You, covered by Your grace.
But if I am doing them, even if you do not believe Me or have faith in Me, [at least] believe the works [that I do—admit that they are the works of God], so that you may know and keep on knowing [clearly—without any doubt] that the Father is in Me, and I am in the Father [that is, I am One with Him].”John 10:38 (AMP)
And this, so that I may know Him [experientially, becoming more thoroughly acquainted with Him, understanding the remarkable wonders of His Person more completely] and [in that same way experience] the power of His resurrection [which overflows and is active in believers], and [that I may share] the fellowship of His sufferings, by being continually conformed [inwardly into His likeness even] to His death [dying as He did];Phillipians 3:10 (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)
