Daily Prayer: Day 273

From Simple Prayers, Day 273

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. 

I trust in Your loyal love;
My heart rejoices in Your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
For He has dealt bountifully with me. (Psalm 13:5–6)

Blessed be the Lord,
For He has heard the voice of my prayers.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped.
My heart greatly rejoices,
And I will give thanks to Him in song. (Psalm 28:6–7)

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

All things are possible with God. (Matthew 19:26; Mark 10:27)

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.” (Galatians 3:13)

I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH

By Your grace I will not forsake You, the fountain of living waters, to dig my own cisterns, broken cisterns that can hold no water. (Jeremiah 2:13)

MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD

Godliness with contentment is great gain. For I brought nothing into the world, and I can take nothing out of it. But if I have food and clothing, with these I will be content. (1 Timothy 6:6–8)

A generous man will prosper, and he who waters will himself be refreshed. (Proverbs 11:25)

Lord, I thank You that all things are possible with You and that Christ redeemed me from the curse of the law. I pray that I would never forsake You to seek significance and security in other places, and I ask that I would learn the secret of contentment and be charitable with others.
