Heavenly Father, there is no one like you who sees past, present and future. Thank you that Peter’s words continue to remind us of the godly qualities you desire. He stirs us to righteousness today. These words are timeless. I lift my prayer of thanksgiving in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have. I think it right, as long as I am in this body, to stir you up by way of reminder, since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me. And I will make every effort so that after my departure you may be able at any time to recall these things.” (2 Peter 1: 12-15 ESV)
