MORNING PRAYER AND SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY
SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: He will turn toward the prayer of the destitute; He will not despise their prayer. — Psalm 102:17 (BSB)
QUOTE: You can do more than pray after you have prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed. — S.D. Gordon
PRAYER: O Lord, You created us in Your own image, that we might be Your true children; we come to You this morning seeking for favor. Whatever hinders our enjoying the full revealing of Your love — will You take away. As the rising sun has driven away the darkness — so may Your love dispel the shadows from our souls. As the light of the morning floods fields and valleys — so may Your grace flow about us. Illumine us with Your holy love.
We have sinned and come short of Your glory. We have dishonored You in our living. We desire to make this the best day we have ever lived. May You give us special grace, a special measure of Your Spirit, that we may keep near to You. Help us to do our common work better, more skillfully, more neatly, more swiftly than ever before. Help us to keep You more in our thoughts as we hurry here and there on our errands of duty. Give us more of the mind of Jesus, that we may be sweet-spirited, and kindly-affectioned. May Your love shine in our faces, so that we shall witness for You in all our walk and conversation. Sanctify our influence with others.
There are many friends who need Your help and blessing this day. There are some to whom duty will be hard because of discouragement. Life is not going smoothly with them. They have had reverses and losses. Remember such and bless them in their disheartenment. Keep them from being too much cast down. Give them courage and hope, and sustain them by Your grace. There are homes in distress because loved ones are sick. Tenderly bless such homes. Spare useful lives if it be Your will. We ask these mercies, sure of Your sympathy, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
EVENING PRAYER AND SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY
SCRIPTURE: May my prayer be set before You like incense, my uplifted hands like the evening offering. — Psalm 141:2 (BSB)
QUOTE: Faith in a prayer-hearing God will make a prayer-loving Christian.
— Andrew Murray
PRAYER: O God, our Father in Heaven, who has kept us through another week, we wait for an evening blessing. For all that the week has been to us, we thank You. Goodness and mercy have followed us all the days and nights. We have been fed daily from Your hand, as really as were Your people in the wilderness when manna was rained upon them morning by morning. You have blessed us with health, with friends, with the comforts of home, with the many good things of providence which the week has brought to us.
But our part has not been so faithful. We have been forgetful and careless. We have not done all our duty to each other and to our neighbors. We have left undone, many things we ought to have done. Forgive us, and enable us to profit by the experience of our failure in the past and to live holier another week.
We leave all our work in Your hands. We look toward Sunday with hope and longing, for we desire to go again to Your sanctuary. Our souls thirst for You as a dry waterless land thirsts for rain. May we be prepared for Sunday, that when it comes we may be ready for rich blessing.
Keep us through the night. Protect us from all harm. Preserve our bodies from disease and from accident, and our souls from evil of every kind. May we rest in sweet peace and be refreshed by sleep. May our home have special protection from fire and every danger. We would not forget our friends. Give them a Saturday evening blessing.
Hear us in these our evening prayers, bless us, comfort, strengthen, and keep us. We ask all for the sake of Jesus Christ our Redeemer. Amen.
