Today’s Prayer

Lord God Almighty, I come to You beneath the hallowed covering of Your majestic Name. I look to You for the sustenance that nourishes both body and soul. In the ordinary moments of my day, make me aware of Your Spirit’s presence so that I can move into the realm of the extraordinary that is only possible through Your holiness. Help me in my areas of offense to forgive those who have hurt me, whether intentionally or not. Alter my selfish perspective in the midst of wounding so that I can gaze at You, my healer. Lead me away from the evil one’s tempting enticement to seek revenge. Rather, let me move along the path of forgiveness until the freedom I have been given in Christ takes precedent in my soul over the bondage of offense. Under the mighty prayer of Matthew 6:9-13 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow before You.

Our Father in heaven,
Reveal who you are.
Set the world right;
Do what’s best—
    as above, so below.
Keep us alive with three square meals.
Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others.
Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil.
You’re in charge!
You can do anything you want!
You’re ablaze in beauty!
    Yes. Yes. Yes.
Matthew 6:9-13, MSG
