Thank you for another day of grace, mercy , and favor. Bless us with peace that surpasses all understanding and love to spread to one another.
Sometimes our insides can feel like a battle zone, where missiles are falling too close to home. Other times we get caught in an endless storm, with thoughts flying out of control. Confusion reigns, and defeat creeps in to steal our joy. We need your peace - the-deep-down-in-your-heart kind that says with us day and night and speaks confidently into the wind. Calm our anxious spirit.
In Jesus' name.
I pray for protection throughout this day; protect from harm and evil; go before me, to the left and right of me and behind me. Order my steps so that I walk worthy of your calling throughout this day. May I be attuned to your promptings - whether it shows up as a gentle tug or a strong conviction.
I pray for reconciliation in families, in nations and to you. I pray that all may come to know you and be reconciled back to you.
Throughout this day, may I be keenly aware of your presence in everything I do - as we commute, live and have our being. May our lives be a living example and may others see Christ in us. There are many that are hurting in this world - may I be a salve to someone today Lord, in a way that I can’t even imagine. May our words be seasoned with salt and minister grace to all that hear. May my actions be aligned with your word.
I pray for wisdom that is peaceable, gentle, and approachable, with lots of mercy and fairness. You said an unlimited supply of wisdom is available to me if I simply ask, so I pray for wisdom to know how to deal with the many people and situations that will cross my path.
This is the day that you have made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. With gratitude, I thank you for preserving my life for one more day. With gratitude, I thank you for your ultimate gift of love for me, int he form of your son and the sacrifice of his life on my behalf. Because of this overwhelming fit that I often cannot comprehend, I humbly submit to you. I know Lord, that I am a mere human and cannot instruct you, but you can Lord instruct me. So teach me your ways that I may rely on your faithfulness. Teach us to number our days and to use our time wisely.
I don’t know what this day holds, but I know you hold the day. It was you that laid the foundations of the Earth and therefore understands every part of it. I know that you keep the sun in the sky, the stars in place, and have created this Earth for me to inhabit and enjoy.
Protect us in your love and warm embrace.
In Jesus’ name.
Though I may not know who or what will cross my path today, I do know that you are my rock and my fortress. You are my shield and my strong tower. Help me to anchor myself to your today.
Teach me how to stand strong in You and choose only Your way today. Help me walk by Your truth and not my feelings. Help me to embrace anything that comes my way as an opportunity to see You at work and as an opportunity to point others to You. Thank You that You love me and nothing can ever take that away from me! Even if I fail today and fall short, You whisper Your unconditional love deep into my soul and remind me that Your mercies are new every morning. That truly amazes me, Lord.
Thank you for your grace, mercy and loving kindness.
May nothing separate me from you today. Teach me how to choose only your way today so each step will lead me closer to you.Help me walk by the Word and not my feelings. Help me to keep my hear pure and undivided. Protect me from my own careless thoughts, words, and actions. And keep me from being distracted by MY wants, MY desires, MY thoughts on how things should be. Help me to embrace what comes my way as n opportunity, rather than a personal inconvenience. And finally, help me to rest in the truth of Psalm 86:13, ‘Great is your love toward me.’ You already see the ways I fall short and mess up. But, right now, I consciously tuck your whisper of absolutely love for me into the deepest part of my heart. I recognize your love for me is not based on my performance. Your love for me warts and all. That’s amazing. But, what’s most amazing is that the Savior of the world would desire a few minutes with today. Lord, help me to forever remember what a gift it is to sit with you like this.
