Most kind and gracious Heavenly Father, we are grateful at the end of another day for Your kindness, mercy, grace and long suffering.

In Your Mercy You looked down on the poor estate of Your people, had pity on us so much so that Your Son stepped off His Throne, to become sin, Who knew no sin.
In Your kindness therefore You allowed Him, Who willingly did not consider equality with You a thing to be held on to, to sacrifice Himself according to Your divine plan.
In Your long suffering, You hold back Your final wrath not wanting many to be lost, but everyone to come to repentance.
In Your grace, You reached down from Heaven and pulled sinners such as I, out of the fiery pit, cleaned us off, put a new robe of righteousness on us and set us on a course to live in the Eternal Realm, even now, amongst a lost and dying world.

We are so grateful for Your love, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us, oh Lord my God in Heaven.
We are humbled by Your goodness in that You provide for us, not just food and shelter in the natural, but supernatural nourishment which is new every morning.
We are mystified that even when things do not add up, and we feel adrift in a sea of loneliness, confusion and chaos, Your Grace is sufficient for us.
We are overwhelmed that You, my God, not just know the very hairs on our heads, but You call us by Name to such an incredible extent, You sent the same Spirit Who raised Christ from the dead, to live in us.

Most glorious and wonderful God, we ask in the same vein as Your long-departed servant Spurgeon, who now abides with thee...we ask "Christian, lovest thou thy Savior? Is His name precious to thee? Is His cause dear to thee? Wouldst thou see the kingdoms of the world become His? Is it thy desire that He should be glorified?"

Lord, the answer is YES to all those questions!

You are our delight. We love You, Your amazing Son, the Creator and the Powerful Holy Spirit.
You are the Pearl of Great Price....more precious than gold or silver.
Your cause is more dear to us than life itself. We are committed to the end.
Your wish is our desire that we live out our days in righteousness, holiness and humility, seeking justice for all, but Your Kind of Justice not the world's. Seeking the good life for all, not the prosperity heresy of the modern church, but the abundant life which cometh from abiding in Thee. Our desire is Your command, to goeth forth and make disciples of all men, women and children and to bring them to the Foot of the Cross.
You are our first love - we shall never abandon Thee for the corrupt, evil and perishing things of this world.

Therefore Lord, as we begin a new week and head to a new day, may we rest in the everlasting Arms. May we surrender all that we are, which is absolutely nothing compared to all that You are.....and Lord, may we awake each and every day of the next week, to love, serve and obey Thee in all that we say, think and do, in Jesus' Most Precious and Holy Name, AMEN AND AMEN!
