1 Timothy 6:11-12  But you, O man of God, flee from these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of eternal life, to which you were called and about which you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. Dear Heavenly Father, Here in this passage to Timothy, Paul is speaking to the believers. Through fruits of our faith, you would have us do what is right…

Psalm 146:3-6  Do not trust in human helpers, in a mortal man who cannot save you.  His spirit departs. He returns to the ground he came from. On that day, his plans have perished. Blessed is everyone who has the God of Jacob as his help. His hope is in the Lord his God, the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything which is in them. He is the one who stays faithful forever. Dear Heavenly Father, Today, we pray that…

1 Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, who called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Dear Heavenly Father, Even when we are unfaithful, you always remain faithful. Our sinful nature is always trying to pull us away from you, and when we give in to those desires, we are unfaithful. Still, you remain faithful to us. You knew us before we were even conceived; you knew how we would chase after the desires of our hearts more…

1 John 4:12-15 No one has ever seen God. If we love one another, God remains in us, and his love has been brought to its goal in us. This is how we know that we remain in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God remains in him…

Colossians 3:12 – 15 Therefore, as God’s elect, holy and loved, clothe yourselves with heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with one another and forgive each other if anyone has a complaint against anyone else. Forgive, just as Christ forgave you. And, in addition to all these things, put on love, which ties things together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ control your hearts, to which you were also called, in one body. And be thankful. Dear…

Hebrews 13:14 For we do not have a permanent city here, but we are looking for the city that is coming. Dear Heavenly Father, We have been placed on this earth to wander here until our time is ended, but our wandering is not pointless. We have been given three tasks, one you would have all people be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. So, this is step one; we must come to know you. Your Spirit…

Proverbs 16:9  A person’s heart plans his way, but the Lord makes his steps secure. Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for this reminder that you have given us the freedom to make our own decision about what we would like to do. We have the freedom to make plans, to decide what we will do in our lives and where we will do from day to day. You watch over those plans we make; some you allow to be blessed while others you…

1 Timothy 2:1-4 First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all those who are in authority, in order that we might live a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. Dear Heavenly Father, With all that is…
1 Corinthians 1:22-25 Yes, Jews ask for signs, Greeks desire wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified—which is offensive to Jews and foolishness to Greeks, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. We preach Christ crucified because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. Dear Heavenly Father, Not much has changed since Paul’s time. To talk about…

Revelation 1:8  “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, the one who is, and who was, and who is coming, the Almighty. Dear Heavenly Father, Your word brings us comfort today. As we see the challenges of how sin plagues the world around us, only you can give us comfort. At first glance, the world may seem as though evil is gaining the upper hand. Lord, we know this simply is not true. When we step away…
