Today We Pray

Dear Lord, I pray that this day You will incline my heart to keep your commandments, driving temptation from my mind. Guide my feet into the way of peace that having done Your will with cheerfulness. When the night comes, I will rejoice in giving You thanks for a day lived in Your presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Teach me, O Lord, to act so that all my deeds will glorify Your holy name and Your wonderful creation. Take pity, O Lord, on all the people in this earth. Hear the desires of all who cry out to You, and deliver them from evil.

O Lord God, forgive us our sins and offenses and insults against each other. Dispel from our hearts all indignation, suspicion, anger, remembrance of evil, quarrels, and all that might hinder and lessen brotherly love. Replace resentment with forgiveness, I pray, in the name of Christ.
