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 praise You O God, that You are unchanging.
From everlasting to everlasting, You remain the same God.
You do not change.
You are just the same as You were in the beginning.
You are unchanging in Your power, wisdom, justice, holiness, truth, goodness, generosity and love.
You do not change in Your plans as they are perfect plans,
nor in Your promises for they will all be kept.
We praise You, that You do not change who the objects of Your love are.
Those whom You set your love on in eternity past,
You will continue to love by calling them, justifying them, sanctifying them, and glorifying them.
What joy it is for us to know that You are unchangeable.
That never have You changed and never will You.
What security, what confidence this gives to us because it means that You won’t change Your mind about us.
You won’t stop loving us.
You won’t stop saving us.
And we won’t be consumed by Your wrath, because Jesus’ blood and righteous is sufficient for us to enter heaven and always will be.
You command us to love our neighbour as ourselves.
We confess that we have not obeyed this command as we should have done.
In how we treat other people we need Your forgiveness.
We have been rude, irritable with others, envying their successes and enjoying seeing them fail.
We have insisted on our way,
and our actions have not always built others up in the faith nor spurred them on to love and good deeds.
Open our eyes Lord to how we have wronged others, so that we might seek forgiveness from them as well as from You and do this no more.
God of truth, help us to be those who speak only the truth.
They are so many ways we sin with our speech, and we don’t want to anymore.
Take away any desire we may have to say something that isn’t true or not to tell the whole truth,
to gossip, slander, exaggerate, deceive, flatter, pretend all is well when it is not,
or imply something by the way say it.
Remove our fascination with rumours, both hearing and spreading them.
Keep us from hypocrisy, especially from worshipping You with our lips and not from our hearts.
By Your Spirit make us more like Jesus who is the truth.
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.
