Daily Prayer for January 3, 2024

Prayer: Grant to your people, our most holy Father, a sense of peace, joy, and contentment in your divine purposes and plans. We know that you are good and do good for your redeemed and chosen people. We thank you that you call us your treasured possession, the apple of your eye. We thank you that you are sovereign, ordering all things for your glory and the good of your church. We thank you for the salvation we have because of what the Lord Jesus Christ did for us. Yet, Lord, we confess that there are times when we are overwhelmed by the hardship of this life. We witness the world wrecked by sin. We see al kinds of calamities in our lives and in the lives of others. We lament the reality of this fallen existence, but then remember that you are governing these things and that you are using each of them to perfect us into the image of the Savior. Though the world is a mess, we have no reason to fret what evil people will do. Though this world is wrecked by sin, we know that you are working to bring us to our heavenly rest. We praise you, our God, for your infinite wisdom asking that we would trust you with all our hearts and rest comfortably in your blessedness abd grace. Please help us this day to be still and know that you are God. We ask these things in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
