Today We Pray

Dear Lord, we give You glory and honor. It is You alone who can save our souls. O Lord, as You withdraw sleep from the eyes of my body, grant me wakefulness of mind so that I may stand before You in awe and sing Your praises worthily, all of this day.

I thank You that You have answered me and have become my salvation. Let me be strong in faith and strong in Your Spirit; for only by You, Lord Christ, may the gates of righteousness be opened to a sinner. I pray that I may be part of the foundation of Your church on earth and that by Your grace, the gates of righteousness may be opened to me and to all who confess Your holy name.

The God of peace, who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ, the great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant; Make me perfect in every good work to do Your will, working in me that which is well pleasing in Your sight; through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever.
