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.”
We give to You our praise, Almighty God, for You are great and powerful.
You made the heavens and the earth by Your might.
You have determined the number of stars and given each one of them their names.
As we consider the works of Your hands, we see Your greatness and majesty, and we are amazed that You would use this on our behalf:
To save us through Your Son who has defeated sin, Satan, and death.
To change us by Your Spirit to be like Christ.
To preserve us in this life and through death by keeping us in Your powerful hands that nothing and no-one can snatch us out of.
With Your outstretched arm You have rescued Your people time and time again, because nothing is too difficult for You and none can withstand You.
So, to You, Lord God Almighty, we give the glory which You deserve.
Heavenly Father, forgive us we pray for we have sinned and fallen short of Your glory.
It is against You, You only, that we have sinned and done what is evil in Your sight.
We are ashamed of what we have done and what we have left undone.
We have every reason to cry out, “Woe to us, for we are ruined.”
Help us, O God of our salvation.
Deliver us, and atone for our sins, for Your Name’s sake.
How thankful we are that You have through the kindness and love shown to us in the coming of our Saviour Jesus Christ.
For You have rescued us, not by any works of righteousness we had done, but according to Your mercy, which we see at the cross as He takes the penalty we deserve.
Our God, help us to love You.
You alone are the one who is truly worthy of all our love.
And we praise You that, incredibly, You have chosen to set Your love upon us and have included us among Your people.
Help us to love You with all of our affections –
that You would be our first love.
Would You increasingly fill our minds that everything we learn about You would increase our love for You, so that it doesn’t become cold.
And would this lead us to loving those around us [spouse, children, family, church family, work colleagues, neighbours etc] and pursuing their good.
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.
