Today We Pray

Dear Lord, forgive me my sins and my injustices, my transgressions and my shortcomings. Do not take into account every sin of Your servant, but cleanse me with the cleansing of Your truth. Direct my steps to walk in holiness and righteousness and purity of heart, and to do what is good and pleasing in Your sight and in the sight of my rulers.

Let Your face shine upon all Your servants in peace for our good, that we may be sheltered by Your mighty hand and delivered from every sin by your uplifted arm. Deliver us as well from those who hate us unjustly. Give harmony and peace to me and to all who dwell on the earth, just as You did to our fathers when they reverently called upon You in faith and trust.

May it please You, my good Lord, that there may come a day when I can repay a little of my great debt to You. O Jesus, strengthen my soul, You who are good above all good; and since you have inclined my soul in this way, show me how I may act for you, whatever it may cost, O Lord. Here is my life, my honor and my will; I have given them all to You and they are yours: use me to do whatever You want.
