Today’s Prayer

When the sun rises on a troubled day, I look to the heavens where Your glory beckons me to come. When the challenges of this world assault me and my soul refuses to be comforted, I feel the pull of Your presence reminding me of Your nearness. My Lord, lift me higher. Alter my perspective so that the troubles of this life do not weigh me down. In the night seasons, Lord, sing Your new song over me. In the blessed springtime of life’s blessings lead me in a dance of praise. May my focus always be on You. May my delight remain rooted in You, Jesus. Let me remember Your wondrous love and the mighty work of Your hands. There is no place You have left me to languish. There is no pit that You have not rescued me from. Beneath the lyrics of Your truth, I will find refuge in Your protection. Beneath the canopy of divine love, I will find rest. When the sun sets on this journey of life, I look to eternity’s horizon where Your glory welcomes me home. Under the beauty of Your Word in Ecclesiastes 3:11 and the authority of Christ, I lift these prayers.

He has made everything beautiful in its time.
Also, He has put eternity into man’s heart,
yet so that he cannot find out what God has done
from the beginning to the end.
Ecclesiastes 3:11, ESV
