Prayer for Tuesday 4-19-2022
We give You humble and hearty thanks, most merciful and compassionate Father, for all Your goodness and loving-kindness to us and to all men who call on Your Name, for the blessings of this life, and for the promise of everlasting happiness. And Lord, as we are moving forward, we especially thank You for the mercies which we have ourselves individually received from You during the past week.
For health and strength, for outward prosperity and well-being, for the manifold enjoyments of our daily life, and the hopes of the future, for the opportunities of learning, for the discipline of sound instruction, for the exercise of free independence, for the knowledge of Your will, for the means of serving You within the Church, the Body of Christ, and for the love which You have revealed to and shown to us through Your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.
We thank You, Oh God, for every blessing of soul and body; and add to this, dear Lord, Your other mercies, that we may praise You not just with our lips only, but with our lives, always looking towards You as the Author and Giver of all good things. We ask all for the sake of Your Son, our Lord and Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
