MORNING PRAYER AND SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY
SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: So if you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! — Matthew 7:11 (BSB)
QUOTE: To pray is to desire; but it is to desire what God would have us desire.
— Francois Fenelon
PRAYER: O God, who has taught us to make supplications, prayers, and intercessions for all men — we beseech You to hear us, and to receive these our prayers which we humbly offer to Your divine Majesty, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Remember in Your mercy all men whom You have made to dwell upon all the face of the earth. Deliver them from the manifold evils and miseries by which so many of them are oppressed. Deliver them especially from idolatry, from ignorance and superstition, from error and unbelief, and from the chains of sin. Send abroad Your gospel, until every nation under Heaven shall hear its joyful proclamation. Bless all missionaries and all societies whose purpose it is to promote the gospel. Hasten the coming of Your kingdom among the nations, and bring all Your lost sheep into the fold of the Good Shepherd.
Remember also, all Your people in Christian lands. You have purchased Your church with Your own blood. We beseech You to bless all who own Your name and call upon You in prayer. Give to Your church more of Your life and of Your Spirit. Endue Your ministering servants with all spiritual gifts and graces.
Remember all who are in any trouble. Help the weak, and make them strong in spirit. Lift up all who have fallen. Confirm those who are faltering, ready to sink down in discouragement. Let a special blessing be upon Your children. They never can find the way home themselves; You must show them the way. Grant that the whole company of Your people may ever keep the unity of the Spirit, in the bonds of peace, to the glory of Your holy name. Amen.
EVENING PRAYER AND SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY
SCRIPTURE: In those days Jesus went out to the mountain to pray, and He spent the night in prayer to God. — Luke 6:12 (BSB)
QUOTE: It must be because I live too little in the Spirit that my prayer is to little in the Spirit. — Andrew Murray
PRAYER: O God, who by the teaching and example of Your dear Son, has warned us that we should work Your works while it is day, before the night comes — give us the spirit of earnestness and diligence, that we may do with faithfulness the work that You have given us to do. Save us from indolence and sloth. Help us to realize the true meaning of life. Enable us by Your grace to do all that comes to us to do; and to do with all our might, whatever our hand finds to do.
We beseech You to forgive us tonight, wherein we have failed to do the duties allotted to us. Give us grace and wisdom to use every talent entrusted to us — so that it may yield its fitting return of blessing and good in the world, and honor and glory to Your name. May we be faithful in every relation in life. In our home, may we so discharge all our duties that no part of our household life shall suffer. Help us to be faithful in all our business relations, in our social relations, in the church, in the state, in the world.
We ask You also that You will teach us how to make all our work Christian work — business for Jesus. Teach us how to do all things to Your glory. Let not our worldly business steal away our hearts from our heavenly Master. Let us not grow worldly while busily engaged in the things which we must do to get bread for our bodies. Make all our work a means of grace to us. May we learn how to do everything for Jesus. Then we shall find a blessing in every task and every duty. Grant now that in all things we may honor and glorify You, forgetting self. We ask in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
