Today We Pray




Dear Lord, I pray in the name of Christ that you will this day increase my faith in the sweet promises of the Gospel. Give me repentance from dead works. Pardon my wanderings, & direct my thoughts unto thyself, the God of my salvation.

Make me always watchful over my heart, that neither the terrors of conscience, the loathing of holy duties, the love of sin, nor an unwillingness to depart this life, may cast me into a spiritual slumber. But daily frame me more and more into the likeness of thy son Jesus Christ, that living in thy fear, and dying in thy favor, I may in thy appointed time attain the resurrection of the just unto eternal life.

Please give me discernment and courage in my relationships. Help me by Your power to be gentle and show the same love to others that You have shown to me. Teach me how to live in thy fear, labor in thy service, and ever to run in the ways of thy commandments.

Amen
