How great are Your works, O Lord!Your thoughts are very deep.Who can understand your ways O Lord ? May you O Lord be exalted forever and ever may your glory be honored and praised. As long as you lend us breath. I will endure and yet even embrace your discipline . Dear God because you are growing me up as a son and you discipline those you love – I trust this mild sufferings I contemplate the blessings that have already been mine and many more to come in Christ Jesus. Here is my prayer O Father, grant that I may become less And Christ became more. Help me to be fruitful for the King of Kings and the LORD of Lords.May I today and all of the days of my life abide in Christ so that He may be honored in my lying down and my rising up,My going out and my coming in – in all my ways may the Lord Jesus be honored.Help me, help us Lord to develop an eternal perspective on our Lives here – may we give ourselves fully over to you.Lord I pray for my immediate family and also for all of my relatives, For all of my family in Christ and those we pray will come into Christ, to receive the promise that God has given in the Lord Jesus Christ. Help me to both know and remember that in giving to you I am in the very best posture I could ever adopt – the posture of giving to you a tiny tiny fraction of the blessings you have poured out upon me and even when I am giving it only works to make me more blessed every day – thank you O Lord my God. May your name O Lord be blessed for ever and ever. Amen.
