For he held fast to the Lord; he did not depart from following Him, but kept His commandments, which the Lord had commanded Moses. II Kings 18:6 NKJV

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for those who have come before us and walked with You, setting an example for those who came afterward. Lord, for myself, I want to cling to Your Word. I want to keep Your commandments. I want to honor You in my heart and bring glory to Your name in my actions and words. Lord, I want to hold fast to You and Your scriptures all my days. Lord, I want to encourage others to do the same. Please help me to do these things. Please guide and direct me. Please bring to mind Your Word that I might not sin against You. Lord, thank You for Your blessings! Thank You for helping me every day, all day long. Thank You for walking with me and instructing me. Thank You for loving me perfectly! I love You, Jesus. Amen.

Also in the third year of his reign he sent to his princes, even to Ben-hail, and to Obadiah, and to Zechariah, and to Nethaneel, and to Michaiah, to teach in the cities of Judah. And with them he sent Levites, even Shemaiah, and Nethaniah, and Zebadiah, and Asahel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehonathan, and Adonijah, and Tobijah, and Tob-adonijah, Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, priests. And they taught in Judah, and had the book of the law of the LORD with them, and went about throughout all the cities of Judah, and taught the people. 2 Chronicles 17:7‭-‬9 KJV

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for this encouraging example of a leader who loved You and his kingdom so much that he sent Levites to the people to teach them from Your Word. Lord, I am inspired by this ruler’s enthusiasm for Your Word. Lord, although our leaders do not encourage our citizens in Your Word, we are very blessed to hear Your scriptures and we enjoy many dedicated people who teach Your ways to us. Lord, thank You for our pastors and leadership. Thank You for others we know of. Lord, please strengthen them as they serve You. Please supply all they need and continue to bring them encouragement through Your Word and Your Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, for those who are serving You in other ways, through their occupation or through their leadership as husbands, wives, parents, or students, please continue to supply all they need. Bring them strength and endurance. Let them hear and understand Your Word and find comfort in it. Lord, please, speak to our hearts and lead us in the way of righteousness for Your name sake. I ask these things in Your name that You might be glorified throughout the Earth. Amen.

Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, And let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, And he turn away his wrath from him.
Proverbs 24:17‭-‬18 KJV

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Lord, please help me to remember not to be glad, even when the wicked receives their just punishment. For all mankind was created by You, every person is created in Your image, thus I shouldn’t be happy when people choose evil and the consequences of that choice. Lord, rather, help me to be understanding when I see wickedness increase, recalling Your Word and what is ultimately awaiting those who refuse Your salvation. Lord, help me to hate sin, but never to grow callous to those who fall into it and the destruction they are bringing upon themselves. Lord, please let those who are abusing others for their own gain feel the consequences of their wicked and turn away from such things. Please help those of us who know You to live in such a way as to stand firm in Your statues, but never stop sharing Your name and the gift of salvation. Lord, help me to know how to speak the truth with love. Thank You. Amen.

To know wisdom and instruction, To perceive the words of understanding, To receive the instruction of wisdom, Justice, judgment, and equity; To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion— A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, To understand a proverb and an enigma, The words of the wise and their riddles. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:2‭-‬7 NKJV

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for wisdom which comes from You. Thank You for the beginning of knowledge being a reverence of You.

Please help me to find join even in the mundane tasks, for You have given me life and salvation. May my heart never stop seeking You. May my lips never stop speaking of Your wonderous works. Please fill my mouth with praise and may my heart overflow with gratitude! Thank You, Jesus! Amen.

Ecclesiastes 3:2 KJV — A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for the many seasons of life. Thank You that we can see the truth of Your Word in nature. Lord, please help me to be kind, loving, patient, and understanding of the times and seasons, trusting You for all. Lord, help me to be thankful for today and not striving for tomorrow. Lord, please carry my burdens from yesterday, I am not created to shoulder them, but I know You are more than able to cover my past sins with Your cleansing blood. Lord, please give my family peace, direction, and insight into their day. Let them be wise, discerning, and trusting You completely.

Psalm 81:10-14KJV — I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. 11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me. 12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels. 13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways! 14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for Your faithfulness. Lord, I see myself in these lines. I have often chosen my own way rather than submit myself to Your Word and Your will. I have felt the consequences of walking in my own counsel. Lord, thank You for using those things to teach me to choose You. Thank You for Your forgiveness and acceptance of my repentance. Thank You for teaching me how to guard against my flesh as well as the enemy’s lies, that I might not fall into sin, not chose it. Lord, please continue to teach me Your Word and Your ways that I might not sin against You or anyone else. Lord Jesus, for those who are unaware of their state, please bring them clarity through Your Word and shine Your truth into their hearts that they might see themselves as You do and mend their ways. Lord, for those who have yet to know You, thank You for continuing to wait patiently for them, for continuing to put many proofs of Your love and Your righteousness before them. May their eyes be opened, their ears be opened, and their heart softened that they might see the truth and believe. Thank You, Jesus for Your gift of salvation. May Your name be glorified through our the whole earth. I love You, Jesus. Thank You so much for the power being returned! Amen.

Psalm 19:14 KJV — Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Lord, this verse is my prayer today. Please help my heart to be in line with Your Word. Please place a guard over my lips, that I might not sin against You. Lord, please continue to teach me self discipline and humility, that I might not walk in my own strength, but wait upon You and obey You in all things. Lord, thank You for this day and the blessings You have given. Lord, You are awesome and Your Word is truth, Your salvation is eternal life! Let my life be a reflection of You and Your love. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

John 4:23 KJV — But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for instructing us in Your ways. Please help us to worship You daily in spirit and in truth. Thank You for guiding us through Your Word and Your Holy Spirit. Lord, show me any area where I am trying to worship You in my own understanding, rather than worshipping You as You instruct me to through Your Word. Lord, I know You are holy and righteous. I know I am neither of those things and can only become righteous through Your sacrifice. Lord, thank You for clothing me in Your salvation. Please help me to understand what You are calling me to do today. Please help me be quick to listen and slow to speak. Please correct me quickly when I stray. Lord, thank You for Your love. Thank You for Your forgiveness. Thank You for Your patience. May my life bring glory to Your name. I love You, Jesus. Amen.

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Matthew 24:14 KJV

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for this promise. Thank You for this holiday where we pause an celebrate the gift of Your birth, Your life, and Your salvation. Thank You that You didn’t just come as a baby, but You grew and taught us about Your Father. You taught us about ourselves. You gave us Truth and You sacrificed Yourself for us. Then, You rose again because You are not held by death nor does the grave have power over You. All these things You did and we are so blessed to be able to celebrate Your life. Thank You! Your ways are incredible! Your truth is life. Your love is perfect. Lord, please help each of us to honor You in our actions, our attitudes, and our words. In Your name, I pray. Amen.
