Daily Prayer for January 10, 2024: Psalm 128

Prayer: We bless and praise your name, most holy God because you have made great promises to your people. You are good, and you do all things well. You bless us with the comfort of your Word, reminding us that you are kind to us, blessing us when we walk in fear. We thank you that you have changed our hearts and minds to love you and serve you, though we know that we fall short of all that you command. We are quickly turned aside from that which you tell us. We quickly wander like sheep who go astray. Yet, you are good to us and restore us through the work of your beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Please help us fear you in truth, revere your name, and honor you with our lives. We pray for our families and especially our children. We ask that you protect them from the efforts of the Evil One to destroy them and ruin their souls. We ask that you make our homes as godly as possible for sinners. We further ask that you remember each family for good, teaching them to fear you all of their days and walk according to your word. Please guide our fathers as they seek to lead their wives and children in the things of the Lord. May they do so by word and example. We pray that our mothers would submit to their husbands in all things as their husbands submit to you. We pray you will use our children for good as they learn your ways. We confess our weakness in this area but pray for your grace that the culture around us will not sway us but will serve you in our families as you have told us. We pray for these things through Christ our Lord. Amen.
