Prayer: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name this day. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Grant to us this day all that of our needs. Help us, if tempted, to depend on your Spirit to flee sin and pursue righteousness. Forgive us, Father, for those times that we have sinned. Help us to pursue righteousness and godliness. Indeed, make us as holy as is possible for sinners.
Today, O Lord, we pray that you would be pleased to work in the hearts of our families and friends who have not yet bowed the knee to your Son. We ask for an opportunity to bring the good news of the gospel to those we love. Grant to us boldness and strength and give to us the Spirit that we might know what to say and how. Help us, Father. Be merciful to us for the sake of Christ and His Kingdom. Amen.
