Daily Prayer for August 22, 2023: Psalm 93

Prayer: As we bow before your throne this day, O God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we do so as creatures of dust and unprofitable servants. As we meditate on your majesty and all that you created, we are humbled by our smallness and awe-struck by your greatness. We acknowledge that you are God, and there is no other. We confess that you are great and mighty, the God who made all things and rules over all things as this world’s true and absolute sovereign. As such, we are confident that nothing will ever happen in the heavens or the earth without your divine will and providence orchestrating all things in a way that is agreeable to your glory. For you alone, our God is from everlasting to everlasting. There is no beginning or end in you. You hold all things in your hand as the great I AM who alone determines the course of our lives. Because you are unchanging, we can count on you to accomplish your will in our lives. We confess to you, our Father, that many things in this world cause us to fret. We are often discouraged by the behavior of friends and family. We are often frustrated by the actions of our leaders. We are often disturbed by our actions and sin, grieve those things, and worry over them. Yet, you have told us to confess our sins to you, and you will forgive us. We ask that you not treat us as our sins deserve. Please, our Father, grant us a measure of your mercy and help us. We further ask that we live in a way that demonstrates our understanding of your kingship over all things, trusting you wholeheartedly and leaning not on our own understanding. Please grant us more of your Spirit that we, like the psalmist, can confidently say: Your decrees are very trustworthy. These things we pray in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen
