APPRECIATING GOD’S GRACE AND MERCY

Feb 14, 2024

Psalms 100:4 (MSG) Enter with the password: “Thank you!” Make yourselves at home, talking praise. Thank him. Worship him.

Heavenly Father, we thank You for drawing us again to seek Your face and call on Your Name.

You are welcome Holy Spirit for it is You who quickens us that we may call upon Your Name.

Let there be a quickening in the spirits of Your sons and daughters all over the prayer land to lay hold of what’s in the heavens as we receive grace to seek Your face, and mercy to draw near.

1 John 2:1 My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

Lord, we draw our courage and strength from You, our hope. You have passed into the heavens before the Father and stand as our advocate (Hebrews 4:14-15).

It is in You that we put our faith, confidence, and boldness; in the finished work and the speaking of the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank You for mercy and grace. For all You have done, working on right now, and for the things You are about to manifest, thank You Holy Spirit.

Psalm 3:3 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.

Father, You are our strength, fortress, rock, redeemer, shield, high tower, and present help in times of trouble. To You who answers prayers, all flesh shall come, thank You, Lord.

If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?  But there is forgiveness with You, That You may be feared. Psalm 130:3-4

Thank You Jesus for there is redemption, forgiveness of sin, justification, and glorification in Your precious blood. In You, we live, move, and have our being. (Acts 17:28)

It is You who holds our lives together, outside of You, we have nothing. Our eyes are on You, looking up to the author and the finisher of our faith; our beginning and end. Hebrews 12:2

As Paul said:

For I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day. 2 Timothy 1:12

We commit our lives and everything unto You Jesus because You can keep us. (John 17:12) No one can pluck us from Your hand as we are kept by the power of God through faith.

Thank You for Your keeping, preserving, and protecting grace. You drew us out of darkness, sin, tyranny, bondage, and the abyss of evil that the wicked one had held us. For You will finish what You started; You are not a son of man that you should lie or change Your mind.

Micah 2:7 You who are named the house of Jacob: “Is the Spirit of the Lord restricted? Are these His doings? Do not My words do good to him who walks uprightly?

Lord, Your word is doing good to us for we walk by Your word and truth. Father, we thank You for Your word never fails nor falls on the ground. Our confidence is Your unchanging nature. (Psalm 89:34)

The God of the sure mercies of David, by which our lives are run; we attest to this truth: mercy preserved, drew us, kept, and helped us.

Jeremiah 31:3 The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you…

Thank You, Lord, for the delivering, healing, lifting, and all kinds of mercies that You have made available unto us Lord as Your body. We leverage this truth.

You work in us both to will and do (Philippians 2:13) it is Your work of grace in our soul, thank You. What a God and Saviour! Thank You for Your investments in our lives; You invested Yourself: image in us (2 Corinthians 4:7)

Master, forgive us where we have strayed in words, thoughts, deeds, and attitude, murmuring, misconception, for we see wrongly. Yet we come, for where can we go? You are our only hope, peace, and all in all.

We acknowledge that it has been Your doing and it has been marvelous in our lives.

As a church, family, and individuals, we admit it has been Your finger, doing, working, love, and graciousness, Lord.

We take no pride but in the cross for it is our boast, pride, testimony and everything for it is where it all began.

Thank You Lord for You have not left us to ourselves or the enemy, You have been so good. We have nothing to offer to you but ourselves, we lay on the altar of sacrifice. Please receive us as living sacrifices. Amen.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
