MORNING PRAYER AND SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY
SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. — Matthew 6:12 (BSB)
QUOTE: God speaks in the silence of the heart. Listening is the beginning of prayer.
— Mother Teresa
PRAYER: O God, the fountain of all truth and grace, who has called us out of darkness into Your marvelous light — grant to us Your blessing at the opening of this new day. We beseech You to give us of Your grace, that we may walk worthy of our gracious high calling, with all lowliness and meekness, all faith and hope. May we be enabled to let our light so shine before men, that they may see our good works and glorify You.
We ask You for grace . . .
to perform our allotted tasks with diligence;
to guide our affairs with discretion;
to do all things, whatever we do, in the name of the Lord Jesus;
and in all our ways to acknowledge You.
Order our steps in Your word — and let not any iniquity have dominion over us.
Give us this day our daily bread. Feed us with food needful for us. Grant to us health of body and soundness of mind, that we may be prepared for the duties that this day will bring to us. Prosper our undertakings, so far as they are in accordance with Your holy will. If any of our plans are not included in Your plan for our life, we desire to have them set aside, for we would not go against You, nor do anything that You will not approve or bless. Restrain us . . .
from all excess, of whatever kind,
from all extravagance of speech,
from all foolish vanity,
from inordinate affection and emotion.
Make us thoughtful, serious, solemn, watchful, and prayerful.
O God, You allowed Your only Son to be tempted of the Evil One — that He might be able to support them that are tempted; we beseech You to deliver us from those snares and temptations by which we are always beset, and to strengthen us by Your Spirit, that in all things, we may be more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Amen.
EVENING PRAYER AND SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY
SCRIPTURE: And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. — Matthew 6:13 (BSB)
QUOTE: Is the prayer of my lips really the prayer of my life?
— Andrew Murray
PRAYER: O God, who alone can give the hearing ear and the understanding heart — open our minds that we may understand Your word which we have read. Make the truth plain and clear to us. Save us from handling Your word selfishly — from wresting it from its true meaning to serve any purpose of our own. Help us to find in it, always what Your Spirit meant us to find. Grant us grace to search the Scriptures diligently, and to find in them . . .
Your holy will,
the revealing of Your truth,
the unveiling of Jesus,
Your precepts for the guidance of our lives.
May Your word be a lamp to our feet, and a light to our path. May it show us the shoe-prints of our Master who has gone before us, that we may walk in His steps. We thank You for all that the Bible is to us, for its words which assure us of Your love for us, and which mark out for us the only way to our heavenly home. We thank You for the wonderful promises in the Bible, covering every moment of life, every possible need, every condition of peril or trial. We thank You for the comforts of Your word, that in our sorrow we can always find consolation.
We ask You to teach us Your ways, to take away the veil, that we may understand Your word. May the Bible, as its truths enter into our souls, transform and transfigure our lives, and make them shine with something of Your own holiness. May the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us.
Bless Your word to the world. Wherever it is taught or preached, may its divine light break forth and help to brighten the world. Help us to do something to diffuse Your truth among men. And to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit — be all honor, and glory, world without end. Amen.
