A Prayer To The God Of My Life
“…so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.” John 6:57 NKJV.
Lord Jesus Christ, by the gift of faith You have been revealed to us and Your righteousness has become ours by imputation. And because You are the Righteous Lord and because we must feed upon You to live by Your grace You have led us to feed upon You! And we live because You have become our food, our life and the reason for our living and our righteousness with God. You have become our salvation! Glorious and everlasting praise to You Lord Jesus Christ, our King of Glory and Eternal God! As You provide our daily food and nourish us as it comes into our bellies and thence into our bodies and as You sustain our lives in this way, Great God and Savior, You have led us to take of Your salvation and to feed upon You, the Bread of Life and the Lamb of God, and unspeakably wonderful it is to have spiritual life in this! That You have entered into us and dwell in us; that You live in us and sustain is wonderful and glorious, Lord! You live in us today and always will because You have raised us up to feed on You Lord Jesus Christ. Your flesh and blood have become our food and drink indeed! Thank You for the clarity and simplicity of our lives with You, Lord. We are called to trust and obey, and there’s no other way. Truly to be happy in You, Lord Jesus, means that we trust You and obey You.
We are alive at this moment in time by and in Your eternal life! Because You live we live also! We are alive and blessed forever in You, Christ Jesus! And when the existent world is no more, when evil has been judged to the utmost-when all has been consummated and when Your beloved children are finally and fully gathered to Your side-when the new Heavens and the New Earth come-when Your grace and love completes the regeneration-then we will live in You because we have fed on You in time. When time is no more we shall live with You. How awesome, blessed and glorious You are, O king of the Saints! Worthy are You, Lamb of God! Holy and reverenced are You, Lamb of God! Mighty and gracious are You, Lord Jesus Christ! All glory is Yours, O God, Yours alone, now and forever. Amen.
