Daily Prayer for August 24, 2023: Psalm 95

Prayer: Our God, nothing in heaven and earth is more worthy of our worship than you. You are the one true God, and there is no other. You have redeemed us and rescued us from the bonds of slavery. Each day, you grace us with your favor and love and extend your faithfulness to us. You are kind to us, not treating us as our sins deserve. Indeed, we have great reason to make a joyful noise to you, who is the rock of our salvation. We thank you for giving us the means by which we can worship you. We have our minds, allowing us to meditate on your Word. We have our voices, allowing us to sing praises to you. We have our feet and hands, allowing us to live our lives to your glory. Therefore, holy Father, we pray and plead that we would honor and adore you for the infinite goodness displayed in your creation and our lives.

May you cause us to kneel before you, the great king, our Lord, and maker, and give you the honor, praise, love, adoration, and affection you deserve. You are our God, and we are the sheep of your pasture. You tend to us with care. You lead us and guide us each day. You do not abandon us to the efforts of the Evil One, but, instead, uphold us when he assails us. Please help us, Lord, to love you. Please grant us more of your Spirit and stir up in us fervent affection for you. We pray these things in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Daily Prayer for the Lord’s Day, December 11, 2022

Prayer: Grant almighty God that your redeemed people purchased by the work and blood of the Passover lamb would come to worship you with joy and delight as we think of your blessings and sing with gladness in our hearts for all that you have done for us. We pray, our Father, that you would warm our hearts and affections about you. We ask that you would plainly speak to us through your Word, read and proclaimed. We ask that you cause us to be hearers and doers of your Word and seek to bring forth fruit in our lives. We know that we are easily distracted by the events of our busy lives. We confess that we often find things less important than your worship to occupy our minds and divert our thoughts. Forgive us, Lord, for not seeing how vital worship is to our well-being and eternal state. We thank you for reminding us of the glorious hope and promise inherent in each Lord’s Day. Please help us to honor, adore, love, and praise you today, together with your people. These things we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
