Omnipotent Father, you are king of Kings and Lord of Lords. We bless your mighty name for you reign over all the earth. We take this opportunity to thank you for all You have done in our lives and also to repent of our sins.

Father, help us to be who you want us to be, help us to be like Christ. Shape us, mold us, lead us, guide us, walk beside us.

Give us the opportunity to be a blessing to others and be good role models to the people that surrounds us. Help us to be kind, loving, generous, giving and forgiving towards all who cross our paths.

1 Corinthians 11:1 Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him. And he will make straight your paths.

Professing Christ

Help us to remember that when we confess we are Christians, it does not mean we do not sin and would not stumble. It does mean we are forgiven and You will catch us where we fall.

When we profess to the world that we are Christians, help us not to have pride. Rather may we be humble and allowing you, God, to be our guide.

When we confess we are Christians, we are not saying this to prove we are strong. Instead, we are professing that we are weak and need you, our Savior to carry on.

When we say we are Christians we should not brag about success but admit we have failed and need Jesus to clean the mess.

Romans 6:4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.

1 John 3:2 Beloved, we are God’s children now. And what we will be has not yet appeared. But we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.

We have received Grace

When we say we are Christians it doesn’t mean we are perfect. Help us to remember our flaws are far too visible yet you believe we are worth it.

When we say we are Christians we will still feel the sting of pain, share of heartaches, betrayals and temptations. But when we call upon your precious name, you’ll lead us straight to salvation.

Help us to remember when we say we are Christians we are not holier than thou, we are just simple sinners who received your good grace somehow.

John 15:20 Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.

 

Praying for wisdom and understanding

Help us not to forget that religion is not of you, it is man made. They list the dos and don’ts. Give us knowledge, Oh Father, to understand your Word so you can teach us right from wrong.

Help us to remember you are merciful oh Loving Lord, so when we sin we are forgiven with repentance. For by your stripes we are saved, healed and delivered from the enemy. In Jesus’ powerful, mighty name. Amen!!

Romans 6:4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
