Dearest Heavenly Father,
You are God above all gods. As we begin a new week in your name, may we honor you in all we do and say. Thank you for sending your Son to be our Savior from sin. Help us to put you first above all else in our lives and to know that when we do you will bless us abundantly. Help us also to be lights to light the path which leads lost souls to you. Keep us away from the road that leads to destruction. Forgive us for the many times we sin against you and fail to do your will. Soften the hardened hearts of those who choose to reject you as the only way to heaven that they also may share in your glory. Keep us strong in our convictions and give us the courage to stand up for what is right according to your word.
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Chris is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
(Philippians 2: 5-11)
TO GOD BE THE GLORY! AMEN
