Daily Prayer: Day 227

From Simple Prayers, Day 227


I praise You, Lord, that You are intimately acquainted with my ways and that You always love me and have my best interests at heart.

May I fight the good fight of faith and lay hold of the eternal life to which I was called when I made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. In the sight of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, may I keep this command without blemish or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in His own time. (1 Timothy 6:12–15a)

May I be diligent to present myself approved to God, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)

Take a moment to offer this day to the Lord and ask Him for the grace to grow in your knowledge and love for Him.


You are the Lord, that is Your name. You will not give Your glory to another, or Your praise to idols. (Isaiah 42:8)

The Lord stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him. (Zechariah 12:1)


The love of Christ compels me, because I am convinced that One died for all, and therefore all died. And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again. (2 Corinthians 5:14–15)


I am hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in my body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in my body. For we who live are always being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that His life may be revealed in our mortal body. (2 Corinthians 4:8–11)

God’s servants have commended themselves in every way: in great endurance, in afflictions, in needs, in distresses, in beatings, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in hunger, in purity, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in sincere love, in the word of truth, in the power of God—through the weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left, through glory and dishonor, through bad report and good report—as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and yet living; as beaten, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing everything. (2 Corinthians 6:4–10)

Lord, I thank You that You are worthy of all glory and that You have complete dominion over all things. I thank You for the love of Christ who died for me, and I ask that I would not despair in my adversities, but endure all things for Your sake.
