Thursday: Rejoice in bearing his name.
Thursdays readings: Romans 5:1-5
1 Peter 4:16 – But if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed but let him glorify God in having that name.
Lord Jesus, I wear your name, loudly and proudly. You called me to be yours at my baptism. You marked me as your child and proudly announce to the world that I am yours. You are not ashamed of me. You are not ashamed to call me your child. I pray, fill my heart with confidence and boldness to call you my God and my Father. You have done gracious and merciful things for me, more than I can count or number. Make me proud and even joyful to bear your name into this world. Amen.
