Father, I bow before you today recognizing that it is my privilege to do so because of your mercy and grace. Your word tells me that I am blessed when I realize my spiritual poverty. That in so doing I inherit the kingdom of God. Lord you are holy and I am not. However, I trust in the finished work on the cross of Christ! I believe in my heart that your Son was risen from the grave! I am reminded by the hymn writer that “Blessed Assurance, Jesus is mine”. Father today, would you draw men and women to yourself? Would you Lord help those who believe in Jesus love you more, myself included? Would you awaken our hearts to a full understanding of you and your plan? Father, would you help us proclaim the truth of the gospel so that your Spirit might move in our midst like your Spirit moved after Peter’s sermon in Acts 2? Lord, please Awaken a Generation today. In Jesus name, amen.
