Dear Father in Heaven,
I praise You today my Lord.
Thank You for staying close to me, even in my most difficult days...
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Please use me to minister in Your Name to the brokenhearted and to those who are crushed in spirit.
Help me to never forget that You are the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, Savior and Lord, Creator of all.
Thank You for being my best friend forever.
Thank You for being my heavenly Father, always present and always there for me.
Thank You for being my sustainer and protector.
And thank You for saving me and setting me upon the solid Rock—Jesus—the One who was and who is and who is to come.
Come Lord Jesus.
In Jesus' name I pray,
Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God
Jesus: Alpha and Omega
"I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the Beginning and the End," says the Lord,
"who is and who was and who is to come,
Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the completeness of your salvation from the beginning of your salvation on the cross until His second return to take you to glory. Because Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, you don’t have to worry about anything; He will take care of you.
Lord, there are so many little details in my life that I can’t think about them all. When I give too much attention to prayer, I overlook Bible reading. When I give too much attention to family time, I neglect witnessing. Please help me to worry less and to trust you more.
Just as alpha is the beginning of the Greek alphabet, so Jesus helps all believers start their Christian life properly. And as omega is the last letter in the Greek alphabet, so Jesus will carry you safely through to completion. “He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6). Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the completeness of your daily sanctification; trust Him to work out all things. Jesus is not only the Beginning and the End; He is everything in between. He is the Alpha and Omega, the entirety of your salvation. When you have Him, you have everything you need.
Lord, I rest in Your completed work for me; it’s comfortable knowing that You’ve done everything that needs to be done. I not only trust You for the big things, but I also trust You for the little things in everyday life.
