Daily Prayer for March 12, 2024: Psalm 133

Prayer: Almighty God, you who are Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we gladly and joyfully bow before you today, knowing that we live and move and have our being in you. We praise you for your infinite goodness and grace bestowed upon needy creatures of dust. We ascribe to you the glory due to your name as the one true God of whom there is no other. We confess to you that we do not love you as we ought nor love our neighbor as we love ourselves. As such, Father, there are many times when we do not dwell in unity with one another. Though we have a connection with our brothers and sisters in your church deeper and stronger than any human relation, we sometimes act as enemies, focusing on our petty differences instead of those things that unite us because of what Christ has done. Yet, the true mark of brothers and sisters dwelling in unity is that we love one another. Father, please help us to love others as you have commanded us. Please help us to be patient and kind, not keeping a record of wrongs and harboring grudges against those whom the blood of your Son has redeemed. Please help us to give the benefit of the doubt to others and serve to be kind with our words and actions. We know you are pleased when you see your children walk in harmony with one another. Therefore, we ask that you do this great work in us through the power of your Spirit so we can please you, our Father, as you deserve. Forgive us for those ways in which we disappoint you due to our selfish tendencies. Humble us, Father, and help us walk in love towards others. We pray through Christ, our Lord, for these things. Amen.
