Pray the Scriptures – My Prayer:
Lord, as I draw closer to You and feel Your presence in all that I do, I choose this day to realize how Blessed I am. I will never forget Your grace and mercy that is showered over my life. Like rain drops that pour from the heavens, so Your love is provided to me as nourishment for my soul. The breathtaking beauty and growth that manifests from nothing that I could ever do on my own is absolutely amazing. For you have rescued me from the kingdom of darkness and transferred me into the Kingdom of Your dear Son, my Redeemer, my High Priest, my Savior, my example and guide, who purchased my freedom and forgave my sins.
As I reflect on how Blessed I am, the tear that trickles down my cheek, is but a minor display of my gratitude towards You. Oh, how You love me! You gave Your One and Only Son, so that not only I, but everyone who believes in You will not perish but have eternal life. Irrespective of all my missteps and points of disobedience, You did not send Him to judge me, but to provide salvation for my soul.
Your sovereignty and plan that I may prosper and have hope in You, brought into existence a way to save me and call me to live a holy life, not because I deserved it, but because that was Your plan from before the beginning of time.
Your evidence of grace through Christ Jesus is why I am Blessed.
Thank You Lord for breaking the power of death and illuminating the way to life and immortality through the Good News. This gospel message is one of hope that brings a spirit of expectancy of Your promise that was and is and will be fulfilled through Jesus Christ. I have been accepted through my partnership agreement with Him and I have eternal life in view. I have been set free and am a beneficiary of this great inheritance.
All praise to You, God, the Father of my Lord Jesus Christ, who has Blessed me with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because I am united with Christ. Even before You made the world, You loved me and chose me in Christ to be holy and without fault in Your eyes. By bringing me to You, my great God, through Jesus Christ, I am Blessed to have been adopted into Your family. There is but One way to You and that is through Your dear Son. I am showered with Your kindness, along with all wisdom and understanding and for this I am Blessed.
Everywhere—from east to west—praise the name of the Lord for we have been Blessed.
This I pray in Jesus’ Name. Not my will but Your will be done. For Your Glory! Amen.
