Daily Prayer – Pray ACTS
“Let me experience your faithful love in the morning, for I trust in you.
Reveal to me the way I should go because I appeal to you.”
Who can we compare You with our God?
Who is like You?
One who is glorious in holiness?
Who does what You have done and continue to do?
You alone are LORD.
There is no-one like You.
You are worthy of our praise and we give it to You now.
We boldly come to Your throne through the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way which He has opened up for us, to offer with our lips a sacrifice of praise.
Be pleased to receive it as we give to You all blessing and honour and glory and power.
Heavenly Father, as You look down on us from Your heavenly throne, examining us with Your eyes, we confess that what You see does not always please You.
Though we know the right thing to do, we have failed to do it.
We have been unfaithful in stewarding the gifts You give to us to use for Your glory.
Our thoughts are full of self and little of You, and we have not been as fruitful as You would have us be.
And yet You do not count our sins and transgressions against us because we have been united by faith to Your Son, so that the words You said to Jesus – “You are my Son, whom I love, with You I am well-pleased” – You can and now do say to us.
This is all of Your grace and none of our works.
We have nothing to boast about except in Jesus Christ and His death and resurrection.
We give You our thanks.
God of goodness, we want Your goodness to be seen in our lives, so we pray that Your Holy Spirit would fill us with the fruit of goodness and enable us to be good and to do good.
We pray that we would do whatever good we can, wherever we are and with whoever we are, and help us to do this not because we know we should, but because we want to.
We confess that we feel the temptation to do good in order to look good and be seen to be by others.
May that not be our motivation in what we do today.
Lord, we want our lives to adorn the gospel and would being good and doing good be one way in which they do.
Lord, save, bless, shepherd, and carry us forever.
Provide for all our physical and spiritual needs.
Give today, the daily bread we need: the gifts, time, resources, energy, and health we need to live for Your glory.
Protect us from the evil one and from giving into the temptation to sin.
