Day 36

A Prayer For Steadfastness

"Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle. Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work."

2 Thessalonians 2:15-17

Holy God and Father,

You have loved us with an everlasting love, and beneath us are Your everlasting arms. You have demonstrated Your love for us by sending Jesus to die for our sins while we were still sinners. Through Jesus, we are given eternal comfort and hope by Your unfailing love, mercy and grace. Lord Jesus, help us to hold fast to Your truth and holy teachings. Remind us that the traditions and doctrines we hold on to have been passed down from the church You established long ago with the early apostles. Holy Spirit, strengthen us in every good word and work that the effectiveness of our faith would be lived out in our daily lives to the glory of God our Father, through Jesus Christ our Savior, in fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
