Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. – (1 Corinthians 1:3, NIV)
May all the gifts and benefits that come from God our Father, and the Master, Jesus Christ, be yours. – (1 Corinthians 1:3, MSG)
I pray that God our Father and the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, will shower you with grace and peace. – (1 Corinthians 1:3, VOICE)
Early Monday morning, before the busy of the week begins, a reminder of who God is and how He provides for us, are just the things needed to strengthen and encourage as we rise and ready ourselves for the day ahead. Though I know not what the day will hold, I do know that God’s grace and peace are things that empower us to walk out our days well. His peace surrounds and His grace cover so that we may live out each new day with love. May we ever seek the Lord anew every morning and pray His provision of grace and peace over those around us.
All grace unto you,
Wherever you go;
And peace be present,
So His love you’ll know.
Every good gift,
Is from God above;
Hope, help, and blessing,
That demonstrate love.
Lead us Lord Jesus,
To love as You do;
May words and actions,
Through love point to You.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that because You love us all, You grant us Your grace and peace to navigate each new day. Thank You for the countless blessings that You provide us. Forgive us for the times that we have lacked grace or have disrupted the peace that is present through Your love. Show us how to purposefully pray Your goodness over those around us and fill us so that all that we say and do reflect Your grace and peace. Lead us in Your love. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we pray Your peace and grace over those around us and praise You for Your overwhelming love. Amen.
