READING:          1 Corinthians 4:15-17;  2 Timothy 2:1-10


My Father in heaven, hallowed be your Name.

Who is like You? You are the great and mighty one, full of compassion and abounding in love and mercy. I thank you for the gift of life, for my family, my friends and even my enemies. Thank you for the privilege of being your child. Grant me and my household long life, full of joy, peace and favour in this troubled world. l ask that you make me a living epistle to draw the hearts of men to you. With you at work in me, Holy Spirit, grant me the wisdom to model Christ today. Grant me the grace to love without prejudice and forgive without record; to turn the hate of my enemies into love that they may come into repentance and the full knowledge of Christ. Thank you for your provision today. Use me also to provide for my brethren. Make me Kingdom conscious to partake in Your will on earth as it is in heaven today. Glorify yourself in all l do today. Thank you for an answered prayer because I have prayed in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
