On judgment day will any of us stand boldly before Jesus?

You teach us that fear is a result of separation from You and that our boldness comes from our dependence upon You. How else could it be? Bless us this day, we pray.

My son, if your heart is wise, my heart will rejoice

We pray that our children will never envy sinners and we are happy when they honor their mother and father. Help us, today, to set a good example for our children. We are so imperfect as parents that few of us can say, “Do as I do”.

The kind of fruit we bear, marks us for eternity

The kind of fruit we bear, marks us for eternity

We know we are not to judge each other. Jesus, You have told us that judgment is Your province and we know that You tell us not to try and help with that task.

Have I ever told anyone that I love Jesus?

Father, it seems like we have a huge number of decisions to make every day. Teach us that it is Your desire that we place every decision before You, asking for guidance. We know that in the midst of this Satan has been given a license to try and discourage us. You not only permit the test but You provide us with a way out of trouble, if we will but [...]

Am I adopted? What does predestination mean?

Father, You know the beginning from the end, the alpha from the omega. Nothing we do surprises You.
