Daily Prayer for August 26, 2023: Psalm 97

Prayer: Our God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we stand on the eve of another Lord’s Day designed for your worship, both public and private. As we begin to think and meditate on all that will occur, we thank you that you reign as the alone sovereign who orchestrates each day and every moment of the day according to your will and glory. We know that it is awful to fall into the hands of the living and true God, for you are holy, and we are creatures of dust. As the true God, you showed forth your power over the forces of Egypt and the dead deities of that land. You showed your power and might to your people, freeing them from the cruelty of the taskmaster. You conquered their enemies and drowned them in the Sea. You brought your people to your holy mountain, and it quaked at your presence. You spoke to your people, and you delivered your people from misery. You have done that for us, as well. You have turned our wills to you. You have framed our minds to think your thoughts after you. You have caused us to long for and desire to worship you. We hear from you, and we are glad, and we rejoice because you have condescended to our lowly estate and placed our feet in the solid rock that is Christ. Please help us, therefore, to walk according to your ways, heeding your voice and doing your will. Please grant us the help we need to obey the simplest of your commands. Please help us put to death the deeds of the flesh and give us a greater affection for you and your Son in whose name we pray. Amen.
