Lord of heaven and earth, give me a grateful heart. Help me to see the value of all you’ve done for me. Help me to rise above the hardships and heartaches of life in thankfulness for Your faithfulness. Help me grasp the meaning of the Scripture that says, “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.’” Amen.
Lord of all creation, who has given us the sure promise that Jesus will return to judge the earth: make us ready, we pray for His royal coming, that we may consider daily what sort of people we ought to be, and be found faithful servants waiting and working for our Master’s return. Grant, in Your mercy, that many may be won for Him before He comes, and make us bold in our witness, than no one’s blood may be on our hands on that day, whether He comes at midnight, or at dawn, or in the daytime; for His Name’s sake. Amen.
Grant, O Lord, that in the written Word, and through the spoken word, we may behold the living Word, even Jesus Christ our Savior and King. Amen.
