Daily Prayer for December 26, 2023: Psalm 126

Prayer: Grant to us, Almighty God, a sense of your presence this day as we seek to walk according to your ways and your commandments. Grant, we beg of thee, a zeal that can only come from the eternal Spirit who gives all your redeemed people a desire to love you and walk humbly with you. Please help us to remember your infinite kindness and grace that turns our mourning into gladness as you restore to your covenant people the hope of salvation. Through that remembrance, Father, we seek to be filled, not with sorrow but with laughter and rejoicing for the great work you have done in rescuing us, helpless and pitiful sinners, from a life of sin and misery to one that does what we are created to do – honor and adore you. Please remember us for good, O Lord, and dry our tears of sadness as we reflect on the great work of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

We pray for your church, wherever she may be found, that you would remind all of your people of your favor for them. We pray for the strength that can only come from you as your people seek to walk according to your ways. We pray that you will keep the Enemy of your people far from them, restoring the souls of those who are weary, causing them to look not to themselves but to the one who is meek and lowly in heart, knowing that he will give rest for their souls. We ask that you prosper Zion’s gates today and help your people in this dark and decaying world. We pray these things through Christ our Lord. Amen.
