Loving Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, thank you for sending Your Son to die on the cruel cross for the ugliness of my sin and the sins of every other person. It is because of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection that You have provided me with unlimited joy and graciousness. I am going to focus the remainder of my prayer with thanksgiving and praise to You for a few of the many blessings of being a born-again believer in Jesus Christ.
It is a blessing to be in Your light instead of in Satan’s darkness; to be forgiven and not suffer from guilt. I am grateful to be out from under Satan’s power, and living in the experience of Your love. Colossians 1:13-14 “He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.“
I praise You that all the spiritual events around Easter have provided a way for me to have entrance to the throne of grace. In that way, I can receive truth about everything in life, and that truth will set me free. Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.“
It is great to have in my mind the picture in Psalm 23 of You being my shepherd and taking care of me, the sheep. That truth brings me great comfort, peace, and joy in this chaotic world I am living in. Psalm 23:1 “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.“
To You, God, be all glory, honor, and praise for what You have done and are doing. Amen.
