Heavenly Father, as we begin a new week, we pause to
thank You for Your Son, Jesus.
We thank You for sending Him to earth.
We thank You for the example He gave us.
We thank You for the love you both have for us.
We thank You for the grace and mercy You show us through Him.
We thank You for the promise of eternal life in Him and
for the hope we have because of Him.
We thank You for Your indescribable Gift!
Father, we confess and believe these truths, but
we live in a world that denies Him.
That ridicules Him.
That disregards His sacrifice.
That profanes His holy Name.
We confess that we’ve grown numb to some of it, so
we ask that You fan the fame of faith within us.
Make us sensitive to those around us who need Him,
give us courage and boldness to step up and speak, then
fill our mouths with the message of the Gospel.
May we live in a way that honors Him and glorifies You.
We ask it in the Name above all Names,
Christ Jesus our Lord,
This is the last week of my series
