Daily Prayer for January 31, 2023 (Psalm 30)

Prayer: We praise your name, our most holy and gracious God, for your mighty works and awesome deeds performed in redeeming sinful and helpless people to yourself. Due to your lovingkindness, we have a God we can run to and cry out to, pleading for all things we need. You hear us when we cry because you are not like the deaf idols of our day. You hear, and you act according to your perfect will and righteousness. Therefore, we can sing and rejoice because you have not left us to the grave but have given us hope in the resurrection. Death no longer frightens us because your Son and our Lord have conquered death and the grave. To you, we can pray, asking that you spare us in these difficult days, causing us to live according to your will. Come what may, our God, we know that you are for us and watching over us. Indeed, we will never be moved as we trust in you. These things we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Daily Prayer for January 27, 2023 (Psalm 30)

Prayer: Our God in heaven, we praise you, O LORD, because you have rescued us from our miserable condition and brought us up from the prospect of death and ruin. Though it is appointed unto man once to die, we have no reason to fear because your Son has conquered death and the grave. We praise you because you have not left us as you found us — miserable and lost. As we cry to you, you hear us and help us, and you do not let our enemies rejoice over us. Though we face the daily onslaught of people who hate you and refuse to bow the knee to you, we will be openly acknowledged and acquitted on the day of judgment. Therefore, we can sing praises to you and rejoice in you for your marvelous work. Thus, holy Father, please help us to praise you and serve you knowing that you love us and protect us from the efforts of the Evil One to ruin us. Please help us to live this day thankful for your marvelous deeds, and your infinite grace and mercy poured out on us. These things we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
