Prayer: Father, we thank you for a new day that you have granted to us. We long to bring you glory as we go about our business that you have ordered. We thank you that you have ordered our steps and guide our way. We pray that we would glorify you with our behavior, and in all of it, we would exemplify the Lord Jesus Christ. We pray that we would glorify you with our tongues, and in all that we say, we would speak kindness and respect and encouraging words to and about others. We pray that we would glorify you with our thoughts in that we would think your thoughts after you having our minds and hearts immersed in your Word. Forgive us, Lord, for the many ways in which we fall short in these areas. Help us to obey you and do all that you have commanded us. Grant to us a greater zeal to live as useful salt and light in a dark world. We pray this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
