Lord, ruler over all, every single person should respect and honor you. You alone deserve such recognition. ~ Jeremiah 10:7 (ABP)
Might God, who is the source of peace, bring you to maturity so that you are doing the things which please him. I pray that Jesus Christ would bring this about in your life. ~ Hebrews 13:20a,21a (ABP)
We aim to do everything that pleases God -- and through Christ that can happen.PRAYER:
Lord, ruler over all, I acknowledge that you are worthy of obedience -- even though I fail to live up to what I know is true. Continue to unpack the life of Christ into me so that I am living a Christ-honoring life. Amen.
