Prayer of Thanksgiving – for God Who Is Faithful


“For I will proclaim the name of the LORD; ascribe greatness to our God! The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and upright is he” (Deuteronomy 32.3-4).

What you say, O reliable God, is what you do! You are faithful, first and foremost to yourself; your own character, your own qualities, your own integrity. You are the God “who never lies” (Titus 1.2). Your “yes” is yes and your “No” is no. You are not a man, that you should lie, or a son of man, that you should change your mind. Have you said, and will you not do it? Or have you spoken, and will you not fulfill it (Number 23.19)? And all your promises find their Yes in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 1.20a).

You called Abraham, promising to be his God and that he would always be yours. You promised that through his seed you would bless all the nations and families of the world. And you promised that through his seed he would become heir of the world. Now we see that the seed of Abraham is your well-beloved Son Jesus Christ, who by his death on the rugged cross, triumphed over death. And by his resurrection has begun restoring life to those overcome by death and sin. Through this seed of Abraham all the world is beginning to flow to the mountain of your House; because of him the whole creation now waits eagerly for the redemption of the sons of God, when all creation will be finally delivered from the bondage of corruption. And we rejoice that by Jesus’ righteousness Adam’s disobedience is being undone, and in union with Christ we are now made the seed of Abraham, heirs according to the promise!

Glory to you, O God most high!
