Lord, I know You will bring to completion the work You began. May my child persevere in her faith and be faithful to the very end of her life on earth or until she meets you face to face. May she be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced by Christ. May she run the race of faith till the end, when she will be presented sincere, excellent, and blameless in Christ.
Prayer of the Day
However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.
—1 Corinthians 9:24–27
