Daily Prayer for November 3, 2023: Psalm 19

Prayer: Our most holy Father, we thank you for a new day that you are pleased to give to your redeemed people. We thank you for the beautiful sunrise we are blessed to witness as proof of your majesty and power. We thank you for the rest you gave us throughout the night, knowing that you watched over us as we slept. We thank you for family and friends and the joy of fellowship with them. We thank you for your church and the gathering of your holy people as we pray and worship you. Most importantly, our Father, we thank you for the salvation you give us through your beloved Son. As such, we have peace with you and great hope for the future. Throughout all ages you have been faithful to your covenant promises. You rescued your people from the bondage of sin in Egypt. You led them through the wilderness and brought them to your holy mountain. You fed them and cared for them in the journey and then gave them your law to obey as those redeemed by the Passover Lamb. Though they enjoyed your presence in the midst of the camp, and witnessed your kindness, they rebelled against you because of their unbelief. Yet, you remained faithful though they worshiped the calf. Day after day you pled with them and gave to them the oracles of your Word through your prophets. In the fullness of time, you brought forth the great Prophet, the Lord Jesus Christ, and, through him, the greater Exodus is being led by the greater Moses who will lead us, with absolute certainty, to the new Canaan, the New Heavens and Earth. Though we have this sure confidence, we know that we sometimes fail to believe you and honor you. Though we have the blessing of your Spirit, we often forget to ask him for the help we need to honor and love you. Forgive us, Father. Please help us by the eternal Spirit to serve you with joy and gladness. Please help us to trust you and not behave as our forfathers whose bodies fell in the wilderness due to their lack of belief in you. Please guide us this day according to your grace. These things we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Westminster Confession of Faith 21.1

I. The light of nature showeth that there is a God, who hath lordship and sovereignty over all; is good, and doeth good unto all; and is therefore to be feared, loved, praised, called upon, trusted in, and served with all the heart, and with all the soul, and with all the might.a But the acceptable way of worshipping the true God is instituted by himself, and so limited to his own revealed will, that he may not be worshipped according to the imaginations and devices of men, or the suggestions of Satan, under any visible representations or any other way not prescribed in the Holy Scripture.b

Monday with Calvin: Daily Prayer for March 13, 2023

Prayer: Grant, Almighty God, that as we enjoy the light of the sun by day and of the moon by night, we may learn to raise our eyes higher and not be like the unbelieving, who have this benefit in common with us, but may we look forward in hope of our eternal salvation. 

Nor let us doubt but that as you set before our eyes a proof of your immovable constancy in these created things, so also secure and certain shall be our salvation, which is founded on your most certain truth, which renders sure all things, until at length we come into that blessed kingdom that has been ordained for us by the blood of your only begotten Son. Amen
(Lifting up our Hearts, 135)

Daily Prayer for January 11, 2023 ( Psalm 19)

Daily Prayer for January 11, 2023 ( Psalm 19)

Prayer: Grant to your redeemed people, O Lord, the eyes to see the wonderous works you display each day in the heavens and the earth you have made. The heavens declare your glory, and the sky above proclaims your handiwork. Each day we see, and in seeing, we hear, that you are our God and there is no other. Through your creation, you declare your presence and power, and it leaves all men without excuse before you. Further, you are pleased to condescend to our lowly estate in giving us your Word written and contained in the Holy Scriptures. Through them, we are warned and instructed in those things that are agreeable to your will. Therefore, we thank you, Father, for giving us your Word in our language. We thank you for it because it is perfect because you are perfect. We praise you for using it to open our eyes and bring us into union and communion with you. We stand in awe of your work as written in your Word — a work that shows from beginning to end you desire to redeem a sinful people to yourself through the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, Father, help us to cherish your Word as greater than all the riches of this life. May you move us to read, study, and meditate on it. Please bring forth fruit from it in the reading and preaching of your Word each Lord’s Day. These things we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
