Prayer: Father in heaven, we gladly bow before you the alone sovereign of heaven and earth. You are the one that we run to in days of trouble and look for help and shield for protection from evil. We thank you that your eyes are always upon us. We praise you that you are mindful of the concerns of your people and help those who are under attack of the ungodly.
Father, we live in difficult days. We see people made in your image, committing abominable deeds. We witness those who name you as their God acting in shameful ways. We note that many do not guard their lips and set a sentry over their mouths. We, too, are often like them. Our motives and attitudes are not always governed by your Word. Help us and forgive us, Lord.
We ask that this day your will would be done on earth as it is done in heaven. We pray that you will shatter the efforts of the wicked and turn their hearts towards your law. We ask that you would open eyes and ears so they may see and hear that you know every action of men, thus driving them to repent before you and look to Christ. We pray this in Christs’ Name. Amen.
