MORNING PRAYER AND SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY
SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you ⏤ Matthew 5:44 (KJV)
QUOTE: If Jesus felt that He had to pray, how much more do we need to pray! ⏤ Billy Graham
PRAYER: O God, giver of all good, fountain of all mercy — we thank You for Your grace and for all the manifold tokens of Your thought and care for us. Your faithfulness never fails. Your mercies are new every morning, fresh every moment — more than we can remember. What shall we render unto You, for all Your goodness unto us? We have nothing to give — nothing but the poor love of our hearts; we give that to You. Grant us more and more of the spirit of praise and thanksgiving. Teach us to sing even when tears choke our songs. Give us songs in the night. Teach us how to rejoice, even in care and sorrow.
We praise You for our home and all it means to us. You have given us countless blessings, in the love that unites as a family. Our home is a little of Your love, poured into human hearts. We thank You for the shelter our home is to us, for the gentle affections that bind us so close together. May our home be sweeter to us as the days pass. Make our home life more congenial, more patient, more kindly. May our love be less selfish, and may it have more of the tenderness of Jesus in it.
We ask for special blessings for this day. We shall be exposed to dangers, when we know it not. Protect us from these. We are liable to accidents wherever we go; may You defend us from these, and grant us grace to pass through the moral contagion around us, unhurt by it. Give Your angels charge over us to keep us in all Your ways. Lead us Yourself wherever we go, that we may not stumble. Make us strong for holy service. Let Your protection be over us all the days; and give us strength for every duty. We ask all in Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
EVENING PRAYER AND SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY
SCRIPTURE: But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. ⏤ Matthew 6:6 (KJV)
QUOTE: A man who is intimate with God will never be intimidated by men. ⏤ Leonard Ravenhill
PRAYER: Our waiting eyes are unto You, O Lord, this evening. The close of each day, puts upon us new obligations of gratitude for new mercies and favors. We are not worthy of the least of all Your goodnesses and loving kindnesses — for we have sinned against You. Yet we hope in Your mercy, and cast ourselves upon Your grace.
We thank You for the guardianship which You have exercised over us this day. We have gone out and come in — and You have kept us. You have blessed us in our home life, keeping us from harm, providing for our needs, fitting us for duty, strengthening us for toil and care. You have blessed us in our business, giving us a measure of prosperity, and enabling us to continue in our place and do our work.
We thank You for the grace which You have bestowed upon us, strengthening us to resist temptation, to take up and bear our daily crosses, to witness for You among our fellow-men.
Great Shepherd of all Your redeemed people, take each member of our family into Your special care, we beseech You. We cannot defend ourselves from the dangers of the darkness — so we simply entrust our lives to Your gracious keeping. May Your holy angels set their camp about our home. May You who do not slumber, watch over us.
We pray for all our friends and our neighbors. They have various needs. We cannot tell You what they each need — but You know. Grant to each one, that which will be the truest blessing to each. Lead them in right paths. Let none of them be eternally lost. Remember Your church, and give to it spiritual enrichment. And to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, be glory forever. Amen.
