Prayer for Thursday
O Lord God, give us new hearts, teach us a new way on earth, so that through Your commandments all people may act in accordance with Your Word and may become one. Only You can do this working through your promised Holy Spirit, and You will do it in order that the earth may become what You mean for it to be, a Kingdom that is pleasing to You. Let Your words be written in our hearts, and help us to fulfill Your commandments in our daily life. Only by carrying out Your commandments to love You and to love our neighbor, in faith, may we foolish, sinful people be made righteous, our sins be forgiven, and everything become holy and good in Your sight. Stay with us, Lord God, our Father. Help us in everything we attempt to do for Your glory. Let something new, something pleasing to You, soon come into our time. Put Your commandments, Your agape, into our hearts, that peace may be restored to the glory of Your magnificent and exalted name. In Jesus we pray and give You thanks.
