Praying from 1 Peter 1:17 relating to Fatherhood, Judgment, Foreigners
Dear Heavenly Father,
I call on you as my Father, knowing that you judge each person without respect of persons according to their work. Help me to live my life as a foreigner here on earth, with reverent fear and respect for you. May I always remember that this world is not my home and that my ultimate goal is to be with you in heaven. Guide me in all my actions and decisions, that I may honor you and bring glory to your name. Thank you for your love and grace, and for the privilege of being called your child. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
