All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
2 Timothy 3:16
Heavenly Father, in the present time and situation, we need you more than ever before, to steady us as our Rock and Stronghold, to secure us as our Refuge and Fortress, to deliver us as our God of Hope and Salvation. You have spoken throughout the ages, through your prophets, your apostles and disciples, who captured your instructions and tenets, your doctrines and commands and documented them in written form to be handed down as Holy Scripture.
Your Holy Word Lord, is breathed into Scripture for our instruction, our direction, our guidance and salvation. The Holy Gospel protects your people from wickedness and draws all who are in need of spiritual nourishment to you, the fount and source of Mercy and Love. It is profitable to instruct us in all propositions of truth which we need to believe in order to gain eternal salvation. It reproves, bears witness and testimony, corrects, reforms and sanctifies us, to worthiness of spirit.
Just as the indwelling Holy Spirit is a source of inspiration and guidance of our hearts and conscience, it is your Holy Scripture which helps us carry to the rest of the world, the truth of salvation and eternal life. This can be gained only through surrendering our lives to Jesus, in true righteousness, for only then can we appear before you, Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
