For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. - Hebrews 4:12



1-Heavenly Father, thank You for grafting us into Your family, adopting us as sons and daughters by faith through grace in Your Son, Jesus. Thank You for being ABBA--Father--the great Warrior who saves us and rejoices over us in joy with song. Thank You for saving us, redeeming us, guiding us, correcting us, protecting us, sustaining us, equipping us, empowering us, and encouraging us. In peace, we can lie down and sleep, because You alone, O LORD, make us dwell in safety. Thank You for loving us from the inside out; thank You for fighting for us, as we hold our peace, and thank You for making all things possible, in JESUS' name, amen.

Scripture: Psalm 4:8; Exodus 14:14; Zephaniah 3:17

2--Heavenly Father, thank You for every good work You've done in our lives; thank You for JESUS, Your Son, our Savior and Lord; thank You for Holy Spirit, our Companion and Comforter; thank You for every gift, talent, and treasure. Please, forgive us of every sin and offense, every act of rebellion, lawlessness, dishonor, and disobedience. We repent and plead the Blood of Jesus as covering over every person in our family and our spheres of influence. Please, let us stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.

Thank You that every adversary here today will not be seen anymore forever, because You are fighting for us and upholding us with Your righteous right hand. Thank You for Your goodness, grace and mercy. Thank You for Your compassion. Thank You for this moment, this day, this breath, this heartbeat, this life You have entrusted to us. Let us not be afraid, for You have redeemed us and called us by name, because we are Yours.

May all go well with us, and may we be in good health, as it goes well with our souls. Although we may be hard-pressed on every side and pressured in every way, let us not be crushed. Although we may be perplexed, let us not be delivered to despair, heaviness, hopelessness. Although we may be persecuted, let us not be forsaken or abandoned, and although we may be struck down, let us never be destroyed. In Jesus's name, we pray, amen.

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:7-10; Isaiah 43:1
