Prayer for Monday
Lord our God, may Your grace rule in our hearts and Your gracious love come to us in glorious fulfillment of all of Your promises, so that in our time we may have community with one another to praise and worship You in unity and spirit. We thank You that we are a people belonging to You and receiving help from You in our pilgrimage here on earth. Bless Your most holy Word within us, we ask of You. Teach us again and again how to keep Your Word, how to be your children in deed and in truth and not just in intellect. May we be given strength of heart whenever great sorrow comes to us. Let Your will be revealed everywhere. Let all of humankind know that You rule, that You alone are sovereign and that you help us and will remain with us into all eternity. For our names are recorded with You, and we want to stay with you, Father in Heaven who knows each of us personally. We want nothing else but to be Your children in the life you have created for us, to be children in Your care and Your presence for all eternity. In Jesus’ mighty and glorious name, we make our plea.
