For His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. – 2 Peter 1: 3
Eternal, Omnipotent God, we praise and glorify your Name, for you hold the entire universe by your Power and have, out of darkness, called us into your glorious light. Thank you Lord, that in Christ, we have received redemption and have been atoned for all the grievous iniquities we have committed, in rebellion or ignorance, and have been called to live a godly life that is pleasing to you.
Thank you, Lord that by your divine power we have been saved from the evil powers lurking around us and luring us into calamity. Your Holy Spirit counsels and comforts us and guides us onto the right path. Father, you have equipped us with all teaching and knowledge required to combat the wicked forces of sin and eternal death. With your goodness, kindness and mercy, you have dealt with us with love and empowered us with your Holy Word.
Lord, we will persevere to stay focused and press forward into the good circumstances you have placed us in. Thank you Father, that we have been imputed with Christ’s righteousness, by the indwelling Holy Spirit and your grace through our faith in your promises of everlasting salvation. You alone are worthy of all honor and praise, as the One, Living God, and we will strive to perfect ourselves as you have intended. Open our minds and spirit to grow in holiness and godliness, abiding forever in our Lord Jesus, in his Name. Amen
