Read Daily Prayer And Scripture for Today 7 March 2023
SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: And this is the confidence that we have before Him: If we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. — 1 John 5:14 (BSB)
QUOTE: Prayer by itself is like a diet without protein! Prayer is important to our spiritual growth—but of even greater importance is God’s Word, the Bible.
— Billy Graham
O Lord, open our lips — and our mouth shall show forth Your praise. We praise You for all You are in Yourself — the glory of Your being, the excellency of Your power and goodness, Your faithfulness and loving kindness. We praise You, that all You are and have is ours, that You are our own God, that we can say, “The Lord is my Shepherd,” “God is our refuge and strength.” You have given Yourself to us. You are our Father — and we are Your children. All the blessings our Father’s house are ours.
Graciously pardon all our iniquities, and help us to make sincere confession, assured that if we confess our sins, You are faithful and just to forgive us. Save us, O God, from trying to hide or cover our sins from You, and help us to confess them.
Let a blessing rest upon us today in all the affairs of our life. Give us this day our daily bread. We ask not for luxuries, lest we forget our dependence upon You. Preserve us from poverty and want — lest we be tempted to sin. Give us only our daily bread, and give us contentment therewith. Let us not murmur nor complain. Give us trust and peace.
We beseech You to use us in whatever ways we can best serve You. We consecrate our lives to You. Let us not live for ourselves — but may we so employ all our talents and possessions that our lives shall be blessings to others.
Deal gently, Lord, with the sick and the dying. Show Your favor to the needy and the outcast. Be the friend of the friendless. Guide the young, and lead all men to trust in You. Cover us now with the shadow of Your wings. We ask in Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
Evening Prayer And Scripture for Today
SCRIPTURE: And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we already possess what we have asked of Him. — 1 John 5:15 (BSB)
Those persons who know the deep peace of God, the unfathomable peace that passeth all understanding, are always men and women of much prayer.
— R.A. Torrey
O Lord, we humbly beseech You to accept this, our evening sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Mercifully grant to us, through the merits of Jesus Christ, Your Son, the remission of our sins, and all the blessings of eternal life. Fill our hearts, we ask You, with Your Spirit. Simply to your cross we cling, O Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer.
The night is now before us. We do not know what perils are veiled in the darkness. We know only that we are safe in You, by night as by day — for the darkness and the light are both alike to You. Your eye sees in the night — as clearly as at noonday. So, while we sleep, You will watch over us, and we shall be as safe as if it were day above us. Be our shelter, our keeper — protecting us from all danger.
We may not all live throughout the night. If any of us shall end our life here and go away before the morning — may it be unto You that we shall go. We ask that You will shed abroad your love in our hearts. May Your will be done here in our home — as it is done in Heaven. We ask for special individual blessings. We have different needs. Some of us are strong, and others are weak. As our day is — so may our strength be. Let none of us ever be overwhelmed by this world’s evil.
We ask for refreshing rest in sleep. May nothing disturb our repose until the morning. Give us in sleep, the blessings of Your love. May we be stronger for the night’s rest. Fit us for whatever is before us. Watch over us and bring us to the morning light in peace and in health. Guide us in safe and good paths, and help us to be useful to many others. We ask it in the blessed name of Jesus. Amen.
