From Handbook to Prayer
No one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:11)
It is by faith that I stand firm. (2 Corinthians 1:24)
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but through faith in Christ Jesus, I have believed in Christ Jesus, that I may be justified through faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law, no flesh will be justified. (Galatians 2:16)
Pause to reflect upon these biblical affirmations.
Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders You have done,
And Your thoughts toward us no one can recount to You;
Were I to speak and tell of them,
They would be too many to declare. (Psalm 40:5)
I will praise You forever for what You have done;
I will hope in Your name, for it is good.
I will praise You in the presence of Your saints. (Psalm 52:9)
Pause to offer your own expressions of thanksgiving.
I know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who have been called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
If God is for me, who can be against me? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not, also with Him, freely give us all things? (Romans 8:31–32)
