Father, we thank You, for Abraham who is the founding father of our faith, and because Abraham took You at Your Word, Father God, this was accounted to him as righteousness in Your sight.
Father, we thank You, for “blessed the those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered, and blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin” (Psalm 32:1-2).
Father, thank You, that now Your laws are no longer inscribed on stone, but are written upon the tablets of our hearts which means that we are not to rent our physical garments but are to rent our hearts instead (Joel 2:13).
Father, we thank You that those of us who believe in Christ Jesus, Your Son whom You bodily rose from the dead, who was “delivered up because of our offenses and was raised because of our justification.”
Father, we thank You, that now because we “have been justified by faith, we now have with You through our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we also have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in of the glory of You, who is our God.”
Father, thank You, and we rejoice in knowing that we also shall “glory in tribulations knowing that tribulation produces perseverance, and perseverance produces character, and character, hope.”
Father, we thank You, that “Christ, who is our Living Hope, will not disappoint, forsake, or abandon us. Thank You, Father for it was “Your love that was poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”
Father, thank You, demonstrating Your Love by sending Jesus to die for us while we were still dead in our trespasses, and thank You, Lord Jesus, for dying for our sins before we manifested in this world.
Father, we thank You, that because of the Blood of Christ, we have been justified, sanctified and saved by Your grace through faith in Christ Jesus, and have now been reconciled back to You as Your dear children because of the obedience of Your Son, Jesus, even to the point of death.
Thank You, Father, that because of the obedience of Your Son, Jesus, and because of the grace that has been bestowed upon through our faith in Christ, we will reign in righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord by whom we will never be separated from You again, for Your eternal glory we pray, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
