Today’s Prayer

Sweet sovereign Lord, let me not sleep in my iniquity. Your gentleness beckons me to rise. Your grace brings light to the darkness of my eyes. All that You have done for me is a marvelous mystery that awakens my deepest gratitude. How can I slumber when Your providence is evident all around me? Harvest truth for me from Your Word. Etch holiness upon my heart, Lord. Let Your hands cleanse me, Your beauty captivate me, and Your glory motivate me. Take me into Your counsel, Lord God, for I have much to learn. Beneath a canopy of sweet praise, Your servant worships You with every breath. Beneath the protection of grace flowing from the cross, Your beloved walks with You. Lead me to eternity, Jesus. Show me the way as You set my feet upon the path of righteousness for Your Name’s sake. Be glorified, my Lord and King now and forevermore. Under the mighty Word given in Psalm 16:11 and the authority of Christ, my Savior and King, I bow in deep prayer.

You make known to me the path of life;
in Your presence there is fullness of joy;
at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalm 16:11, ESV
