Heavenly Father, please capture our hearts and affections with Christ Jesus. May our minds be filled with the wonder of the gospel – that you have appointed Jesus as our great king and saviour, the one long anticipated, the powerful Spirit filled, Son of God, who conquers death. Thank you that we have been called by Christ Jesus to trust and follow him. Please build up more and more, the obedience of faith. May we live for his glory, giving ourselves as servants and heralds of all that you have done through him. Please stir up our longing for him, may we look forward to the time when we will see him face to face. Help us to see his great worth and to turn our hearts away from those things we often treat as gods. Reshape our hearts that they may yearn for Christ above all.
