Read Daily Prayer for Today 15th March 2023, Wednesday
SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable to the LORD, but the prayer of the upright is His delight. — Proverbs 15:8 (BSB)
QUOTE: Jesus taught that perseverance is the essential element in prayer.
— E.M. Bounds
Father, You have told us that we ought to learn to live by the day. You taught this lesson to Your people long ago by giving them manna, not in supplies to last for years — but day by day, enough only each day for the day. You taught us the same lesson by the lips of Your Son, our great Teacher, who commanded us to pray for our daily bread.
May You teach us how to live day by day. It is hard for us to learn the lesson. We grow anxious when we cannot see how tomorrow is to be provided for. We worry about tomorrow’s bread and guidance and help. Teach us, Father, to trust You as little children. You have promised to take care of us. You are our Shepherd, and we shall not lack. You are our God, and will supply all all our needs, according to the riches of Your glory in Christ Jesus.
You who spared not even Your only begotten Son, who delivered Him up for us all — will surely with Him give us all needful things. You who have made us with so many needs of body and soul, will surely meet all these needs, if we will trust You and wait for You. You have promised that we shall not lack any good thing, if only we are faithful to You. Forgive us our feverish ways, and give us the spirit of trust.
Help us now to live this one little day without anxiety. Give us grace to do the one day’s work well, and to trust You with all its care. Give us physical strength for our duties. Give us wisdom to make the right decisions and choices. Give us our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation — but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Evening Prayer And Scripture for Today
SCRIPTURE: I call on You, O God, for You will answer me. Incline Your ear to me; hear my words.
— Psalm 17:6 (BSB)
QUOTE: Prayer is speaking to God but sometimes He uses our times of prayerful silence to speak to us in return. — Billy Graham
Our Father are in Heaven, hallowed be Your name. May Your kingdom come. May Your will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven. The day is gone, and we cannot recall it . . .
to amend its doings,
to correct its mistakes,
to blot out its sins,
to undo the things we ought not to have done,
to do the things we ought to have done, but left undone,
to unsay the words we ought not to have said,
to speak the words we ought to have spoken.
The day is gone from us — and is with You. We leave it in Your hands. Whatever we have done that was not according to Your will — may You graciously forgive. The things that pleased You — may You bless. May good come out of the day for us. Our disappointments, we accept as Your appointments for us — better than our own way would have been. Teach us the lesson You would have us learn from the day’s experiences. May we be wiser for having lived through these experiences. May . . .
our faith be stronger,
our love deeper,
our earnestness more intense,
and our zeal more intense.
We pray continually for our home. We thank You . . .
for the love that binds us together as a family,
for the privileges and favors we enjoy,
for the health and comfort we have,
for the measure of prosperity that attends our work.
Sweeten our household life more and more. Help us to be more and more to each other. Teach us patience and forbearance. Help us to restrain all bitter and unloving words, and to speak all kindly words. Bless us as individuals, older and younger. Give us now Your blessing as we go to our rest. Keep us in safety through the night. And may grace, mercy, and peace from the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be upon us evermore. Amen.
