Dear Blessed Lord Jesus, good morning. I love You, thank You, praise You and give You all the honor and glory for this new day to thank You that I have been saved by grace through faith in You Jesus Christ. Nothing I can do can add to Your finished work on the Cross and having believed in You; my salvation is eternally secure. As I mature in the faith Father let me mature in my prayer life so I can give You many prayers to answer as You will. I am believing healing and blessings in all lives. I believe to truly become a disciple of Yours, I must lay my entire life on the sacrificial alter as a willing offering and be ready and say always not my will, but Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Let me deny myself, take up my own cross, and follow You willingly, faithfully and joyfully. I expect great things of You; please help me to attempt and accomplish great things for You. I thank You, praise You and give You all the glory in Your Precious Name Amen.

Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?

Mark 8:34-36
