Our Father, we thank you for your word that informs us of things we could know from no other source. We recognise that you are the creator of all that we see, that you are the creator of every human being, that everything has been made by you, that we are all your offspring created in your image and that we will all one day stand before you when you judge the world with justice.  We thank you that through the Lord Jesus Christ you have provided a means by which we can be saved, that our sins can be forgiven, that we can have hope of resurrection and that we can become your children. We thank you that we need not fear a day of judgment.  Please help us to know these truths and may they guide our lives and our thinking, and we pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
