Daily Prayer for October 6, 2023: Psalm 113

Prayer: Our God, as your redeemed people, the direction of our lives has changed so that we might give you praise and honor for your mighty works displayed in the affairs of our day. All creatures everywhere are called on to praise you, but due to sin, those made in your image fail to honor you and bless your name. They wander in darkness and suffer the consequences of their sin. Yet, each day, your redeemed people have a particular duty to praise you with their hearts, lips, and actions. We see the beauty of your creation and we are compelled to stand in awe of you. We see your mighty works over the affairs of men, ruling and overruling them for the glory of your name and the good of your church. Who is like you who sits above the circle of the earth and regards his creatures as grasshoppers? You look down from your holy place and see everything we are doing. You perform mighty deeds, yet those made in your image fail to honor you. But we, O God, are your people. We see and take note of all that you are doing and long to praise you as you have told us. Therefore, our God, please help us to give you our whole lives as an act of worship for all your acts of kindness shown to sinners. May you help us to praise you for your great salvation and care knowing that you will guide us each day and bring us safely to our heavenly rest. We pray these things in the name of Christ our Lord. Amen.
