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.”
King of Kings, Lord of lords.
We give You our worship as the great God and great King above all the gods.
There is none like You.
The blessed and only Sovereign.
The LORD Almighty.
The King of glory whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and whose kingdom endures from generation to generation.
Be exalted O God.
All honour be to You.
And we praise You that You are not only the great shepherd, but the good shepherd.
Our good shepherd.
You provide for us what we need,
You lead us along right paths,
You protect us and comfort us in dark valleys,
and one day You will bring safely into the house of the LORD, to heaven itself.
How we wish, Father, that we did not have to confess to You again that we have sinned and not been the obedient children You saved us to be.
But our lives are not free from wickedness.
We have not learned to be content in whatever situation we are in.
We have set our minds on the things of the flesh more than the things of the Spirit.
We have been angry, bitter, impatient, uncharitable, greedy, and in many instances, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.
The battle against the world, the flesh, and the devil has been real, and we have not fought the good fight of faith as we should have.
Lord, make Your face shine upon us and be gracious to us, and give to us the blessing of knowing that our many sins have been forgiven.
Faithful God, stop us from going along with the standard of the world in how we treat those we are not married to, and instead be pure and faithful in attitudes and actions towards one another.
Help us to fight the temptation to lust after unlawful and immoral pleasures and to seek satisfaction in what is out of bounds for Your people.
Make us ruthless in cutting out of lives anything that might cause us to commit sexual immorality and give us the strength we need to pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace.
We thank You for the beauty of marriage as You intend it to be and the picture it gives of the love that Your Son, our bridegroom has for us.
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.
