Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,  

  • God, I stand in awe of you. Regardless of where I’m at - YOU - are amazing. Everything that exists came out of you. Everything exists at your pleasure and for your purpose. You made me, you love me and I am yours. I am yours and you are mine and I worship you – forever.   ​

Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.​   

  • Jesus, come back here and fix this NOW. Solve every problem and heal every hurt. Bring God’s best to every-one of us. Until you come back to reign physically; reign spiritually in us in greater ways. Fill us all with your grace and revelation.

  • God, send me ONE person today to share your love with.  

Give us this day our daily bread

  • ​God, I look to you for everything (physical, financial, emotional and spiritual). Give me all I need to be blessed & to be a Blessing.  (pray specifically for needs)  

  • All creatures look to you to give them their food at the proper time. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.  When you hide your face, they are terrified; Ps 104:27-29

 

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us

  • God, it’s my sin I’m concerned about and no one else’s.  As I release others please forgive and release me from the consequences of my sins and failures. (Pray for those who’ve harmed you)  

Lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from the evil one

  • God, now that I’m free from all punishment, don’t let me use my freedom to walk into a trap.  Don’t let me go down destructive roads today, especially the ones that I want to go on. Lead me on the path of life today.  

  • To him who is able to keep you from falling and to bring you faultless and joyful before his glorious presence. Jude 1:24

                                                                      

BY HIS WOUNDS WE ARE HEALED​​ Isaiah 53:5

1 Peter Chapter 1


Greetings from Peter

This letter is from Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ.

I  am writing to God’s chosen people who are living as foreigners in the  provinces of Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia. 2 God  the Father knew you and chose you long ago, and his Spirit has made you  holy. As a result, you have obeyed him and have been cleansed by the  blood of Jesus Christ.

May God give you more and more grace and peace.


The Hope of Eternal Life

3 All  praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great  mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from  the dead. Now we live with great expectation, 4 and  we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven  for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. 5 And  through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you  receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day  for all to see.

6 So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. 7 These  trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire  tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than  mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it  will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus  Christ is revealed to the whole world.

8 You  love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him  now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. 9 The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.

10 This  salvation was something even the prophets wanted to know more about  when they prophesied about this gracious salvation prepared for you. 11 They  wondered what time or situation the Spirit of Christ within them was  talking about when he told them in advance about Christ’s suffering and  his great glory afterward.

12 They  were told that their messages were not for themselves, but for you. And  now this Good News has been announced to you by those who preached in  the power of the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. It is all so wonderful  that even the angels are eagerly watching these things happen.


A Call to Holy Living

13 So  prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your  hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ  is revealed to the world. 14 So  you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old  ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better  then. 15 But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. 16 For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”

17 And  remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He  will judge or reward you according to what you do. So you must live in  reverent fear of him during your time here as “temporary residents.” 18 For  you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you  inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or  silver, which lose their value. 19 It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. 20 God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but now in these last days he has been revealed for your sake.

21 Through  Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith  and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him  great glory.

22 You  were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must  show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart.

23 For  you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your  new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living  word of God. 24 As the Scriptures say,

“People are like grass;
their beauty is like a flower in the field.
The grass withers and the flower fades.
25  But the word of the Lord remains forever.”

And that word is the Good News that was preached to you.
