Daily Prayer for the Lord’s Day: July 9, 2023

 

Prayer: Our Father in heaven, you are our God, and we are your redeemed people. You, as our Father, stand able and ready to help us. Therefore, we cry out to you as the one true and faithful Lord, working all things according to the counsel of your infinite wisdom and divine will. As such, we must trust you. We confess that we are often deceived, thinking that we have ultimate control of the affairs of our lives. Yet you alone are sovereign. You made the heaven and the earth in the space of six days, and all very good. You did not require our help then or need it now. Forgive us, Lord, for our lack of trust in you. Please grant us an unswerving reliance on your care for us.

 

We thank you for the Lord’s Day, which reminds us of your love and care for us. We know we fall short of the demands of this day. We know that we often go our way and do our pleasure. Forgive us. Please bless us with your presence as we publicly gather to worship you. All these things we ask in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
