Daily Prayer Day 238

I DRAW NEAR TO YOU, GOD

O Lord, I am deeply grateful for Your wonderful acts, for Your abundant promises, and for the gift of my relationship with You through the merits of Christ. 

Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name;
Make His deeds known among the nations. 
Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
Tell of all His wonders. 
Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.  (Psalm 105:1-3)

Take a moment to express your gratitude for the many blessings that you have received from the Lord.

THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE

Your word is settled in heaven forever, O Lord.  Your faithfulness continues through all generations; You established the earth, and it stands.  They continue to this day according to Your ordinances, for all things serve You.  (Psalm 119:89-91)

Blessed is the Lord, who has not left His people without a kinsman-redeemer.  (Ruth 4:14)

I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH

A natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.  "For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?"  But we have the mind of Christ.  (1 Corinthians 2:14, 16)

MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD

Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain.  Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchmen stay awake in vain.  (Psalm 127:1)

He who is faithful with very little is also faithful with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.  If one is not faithful in handling worldly wealth, who will trust him with true riches?  And if one is not faithful with someone else’s property, who will give him property of his own?  (Luke 16:10-12)


Lord, I thank You for the faithfulness of Your word and for providing Your Son as our kinsman-redeemer.  I thank You for Your Holy Spirit who illuminates my mind, and I ask that I would labor in Your strength and be faithful in my use of the things You have entrusted to me.
