Daily Prayer for July 18, 2023: Psalm 80

Prayer: Give ear to your people, O Lord, and hear our cries as we bring them to your throne—grant to your people who are weary and tired the soothing ointment of your presence. You alone are God, and you are our God. You have redeemed us and now guide us as the Good Shepherd of the Sheep. You show forth your majesty in that which you have made. We behold it each morning and stand in awe of you for being mindful of us. Yet, Lord, we know that we easily wander from your commands. We sin against you daily in thought, word, and deed. Please do not turn your ears away from our cries and restore us when we fall. As a loving Shepherd, pursue us when we stray from the green pastures you provide. 

We give you thanks for your daily provision of our daily bread. You are the God who gives us everything we need. All that we have comes from your kind hand. Instead of treating us as we deserve, you are good to us and sustain us each day of our lives. Therefore, Father, please help us to persevere in your presence according to your most holy Word. Please increase our love for you, and may we praise you with our words and actions this day. These things we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
