Evening Inspiration

Evening Prayer: April 30th

Amazing God, as I prepare to close my eyes, I ask for forgiveness for anything I did today that was not pleasing in your sight. I ask for the peace that comes from knowing that you always listen to my prayers. As I kneel before you in this moment of prayer, I am humbled by your healing grace. Give me strength in my rest that I may wake up renewed in your grace. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Thoughts to Ponder from 1 Timothy 1:6-14

2 Timothy 1:6-14 (ESV)

For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, 10 and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, 11 for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher,12 which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that day what has been entrusted to me. 13 Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 14 By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you.
