Praying from Matthew 3:17 relating to Sonship, Pleasure, Voice of God.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for the promise that you have given us in your word. I claim the promise that you declared when you said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” I pray that you would help me to live a life that is pleasing to you, just as Jesus did. May I always seek to follow in his footsteps and to do your will. Thank you for your love and grace, and for the gift of your Son. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Verse: Behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”
This is a Promise. The verse is a declaration from God the Father about His Son, Jesus Christ, and His pleasure in Him. There is no command given to the reader.
