Thank You, for softening our hearts to receive the Truth and for granting us wisdom and understanding to embrace what the world would tell us is unbelievable.

1 Thessalonians 5:21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;

Our Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Your servant praises You.  Bless You, for gifting us with discernment and guiding us with Your wisdom. How wonderful is Your word and what a blessing that we can all carry Your word with us so easily. Let us not take this life saving Word for granted, but lead us in love to reading and reflecting upon it daily. Help us not get fixed on a verse or apparent contradiction, but have us read more and learn more and lean not on our own understanding. Continue to show us what we are seeking, and if we are not seeking Your face, please correct our search. In Jesus’ name, amen.

“… the ungodly man, like Satan his prince, is wholly turned to self and to his own.  He does not seek God, nor care for the things of God: he seeks his own riches, and glory, and works, and wisdom, and power, and sovereignty in everything, and wants to enjoy it in peace.

Romans 5:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.

Our Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You.  Bless You, for saving us the ungodly and undeserving. Thank You, for changing our hearts of stone into pliable instruments set to do Your will. Please, Lord, grant us wisdom to understand our wicked nature and bend towards sin. Help us to see how we are powerless without You to do the right things. Remind us that it is You who works in us to will and to act in order to fulfill Your good purpose. In Jesus’ name, amen.
