Dear Heavenly Father,
I ask You to give Your angels charge to watch over me and the people that I love...
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
Let Your guardian angels be present to protect us from harm and evil.
Please keep watch over each of us and help us to remain close to You.
Deliver those who have been oppressed
And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
Please give to each of us Your mercy, grace and love, a family to care for each of us, and friends to encourage us.
Please meet every need we have, whether physical, emotional or spiritual.
Please give to each of us strength and power to overcome the trials and temptations that we will face today.
Touch us with Your healing hands, and guide our every step, today and each everyday.
May each of us feel Your loving embrace and know Your peace and joy.
In the generous name of Jesus I pray and trust,
Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God
Salvation means that you are in Jesus and He is in you. At your conversion, Jesus came into your heart to become a part of your life. At the same time, you were placed into His Body (the universal Church). “You in Me, and I in you” (John 14:20). All those in Christ are saved, because He is the Savior of the Body. If you are in Him, then you are saved. Have you invited Christ into your life?
Lord, I have asked You into my heart, and You saved me. Thank You for coming into my heart to become a part of my life. Also, I thank You for placing me into Your Body to be a part of Your life.
Jesus is the Savior of the Body. When you were placed into Him, you were saved from your past penalty of sin and from your future punishment in Hell. And today, you are being saved from servitude to sin. Jesus has a wonderful plan for each one in the Church. He wants you to love Him, serve Him and worship Him. Think about it. Jesus has a great and wonderful purpose for your life.
Lord Jesus, thank You for a new, purposeful life. Because I am in You, I will try to do Your will today. Because You are in Me, give me strength to do Your purpose. I need Your power today. Amen.
