Today We Pray

Dear Heavenly Father, give me grace, so to pray, as to deserve to be heard, to address You with my heart, as with my lips. You are everywhere present, from You no secret can be hidden. May the knowledge of this, teach me to fix my thoughts on You, with reverence and devotion, that I may not pray in vain.

Inspire me to respect and value each person who comes into my life this day. Teach me to recognize Your face in the people You put into my life. Let me recognize the duties and responsibilities that come with the gifts You have given me so freely, and inspire me to live in such a way that I always give of my best and be welcoming and generous towards others.

Finally, may I go forth filled with the joy and confidence of Your Spirit. And, may everything I do this day, in word or deed, be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father. Hear me almighty God, for His sake who has redeemed me, and taught me thus to pray.
