*** After each verse, think about the main point made and then give thanks to God ***

Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ Name to thank You for the many Scripture promises in Your Bible.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

Psalm 103:8-10 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities.

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

Lamentations 3:22-23 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.

Lord, I appreciate these promises in Your Word, just a few among many. Every promise in the book is mine. Therefore, I bring my praise to You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

All-wise Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ Name to thank you that as a believer in Jesus Christ, I can receive the gift of spiritual discernment from You. Your Word gives me the spiritual capacity to see and understand what is right and what is wrong. Isaiah 30:21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.” 

Your many attributes give me confidence that whatever happens in any situation, You are in control. You will direct to bring things to the right conclusion. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” My request is for You to let me hear Your voice of correction and be able to follow it. I want to know Your will for my life because it gives me a place to find safety and comfort. I do not want to be without Your protection.

Show me Your way, that  I may know that I am heading in the right direction. Direct me to experience the truth of Romans 8:6. “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” Thank you, Lord, for Your promise in Psalm 32:8. “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

Thank you for allowing me to bring this request in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
