Daily Prayer for August 1, 2023: Psalm 84

Prayer: Our most holy and wise God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we bless your name and give you thanks that you have fashioned us to worship you. We thank you for giving us a day to gather with your people to praise and hear from you. As the Psalmist wrote, we, too, desire to see your dwelling place as lovely. Indeed it is because you are there. Each week you meet with us to bless us and help us to walk according to your will. Though we often struggle and fall, you are good and kind to sustain us in the journey. Therefore, Father, hear our prayer for your church and bless her abundantly. We ask that you watch over her today and cause her to do your will. May you provide for her and guide her. May you lead her to those stream of water that satisfies weary souls. May you give her their daily bread and grant her the bread from heaven that will satisfy her. Forgive us, Father, for the many ways we fall short of your glory. There are no words to express our gratitude for your mercies. We know that they come to us through your beloved Son. Therefore, Father, help us meditate on Christ’s glory in his mediatorial work for us. Please improve and increase our affection for him as we learn to walk with him, following him wherever he tells us to go. These things we pray through his great and glorious name. Amen.
