Sharing my prayer this morning. I invite you to pray with me:
This is the day that You have made, and I will be glad and rejoice in it (Ps 118:24).
Your name is exalted high above the earth and the heavens. You are great and worthy of praise. You are mighty, glorious, wonderful, awesome, good, righteous, gracious, compassionate, eternal, and faithful (Psalm 145). You are my fortress, my stronghold, and my deliverer (Psalm 144:2).
I have awakened to new opportunities and new mercies (Lam. 3:23). Yesterday’s failures are buried. Today is a new slate, bright and clean.
I do not face this day alone; You are present with me (Matt. 28:20).
You are my Shepherd (Ps. 23:1).
You are my Father (Matt. 20:17).
You are my Peace (Heb. 13:20).
My Comfort (2 Cor. 1:3)
My Rock (Ps 18:2).
My Strength (Ps 19:14).
My Shield (Deut. 33:29).
Lord, when my heart and mind are focused on You, the worries of my life seem small because You are so great. Oh, help me keep my eyes fixed on You all through the day.
Gracious, mighty, sovereign God what an extraordinary thing that You sang me to sleep last night (Zep. 3:17) and You sent me word this morning of Your unfailing love (Ps. 143:8).
I make one plea in this early hour – the angels declare that the whole earth is full of Your glory. (Isaiah 6:3). Give me eyes to see Your glory all around me today.
I give You thanks O Lord because Your love endures forever (Psalm 136). My hope is in You and in Your Word (Psalm 130:5, 7). One day I will see Your face (Revelation 22:4). Until then I will wait and trust. I will watch the skies and listen for the sound of trumpets (1 Thessalonians 4:16).
In the mighty and holy and perfect name of Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord. Amen
