Daily Prayer for December 22, 2022 (Psalm 12)

Prayer: Grant almighty God that your redeemed people would live faithfully before you while we pilgrim in a faithless and godless generation. It seems, O Lord, that many have turned against you and your people. They use their tongues for evil instead of good. Our leaders lie to us. Our neighbors speak falsehood regarding us. They use their tongues to manipulate and destroy instead of for good. They plunder the poor and take advantage of the helpless. There is much wrong with our world due to the influence and effect of sin. We mourn the condition of our world and confess that we sometimes do the same things that we know you hate. Forgive us, Father. Please help us to use our tongues for good and not evil. Please grant us a zeal to be faithful to you when things are difficult. Please give us what you command us and help us serve you as you have told us. We thank you for forgiveness and that you shield and guard your people when they face hard and trying times. We thank you for caring for us, and we pray these things in the name of your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
