Today We Pray

Dear Lord, let me read Your Word until something new sinks in. Let me pray until I hear Your voice, until all smugness has given way to gratitude. By the power of your Holy Spirit, renew me afresh in Your Word and power, today and every day, energizing me in Your great commission. 

 I have sinned against heaven and before You. Receive me like the Prodigal Son, and clothe me with the garment of innocence, of which I was deprived by sin. Have mercy upon Your Creatures and upon me, a great sinner, in the name of Christ.

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within me all this day. And whatever I do in word or deed, may I do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father. In Christ's name, I pray.
