Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. 1 Peter 3:15 NLT
God, I love You, I thank You, and I give You praise! All praise, honor, and glory belong to You and You alone. I bow in humility at Your feet asking for Your mercy and grace over my life. I lift up my brothers and sisters in Christ to You today as well. Please help us to live this verse in its fullness and to resist the ways of the world around us. Father, please pour out Your grace upon us and move Your supernatural hand for us in good and amazing ways. Replenish our hope and fill us with joy and peace that we may live in that hope by the power of Your Holy Spirit. I pray these things now in the name of Christ Jesus my Savior and Lord; AMEN!
