Daily Prayer: Year 1, Day 32

From A Simple Book of Prayers

Boasting in the Lord

As I approach Your throne of grace today, I am grateful that You care about the things that concern me and that You want me to offer them up to You.

O Lord, hear my prayer;
Listen to the voice of my supplications.
In the day of my trouble I will call upon You,
For You will answer me.
You are great and do wondrous deeds;
You alone are God. (Psalm 86:6–7, 10)

Take a moment to share your personal needs with God, including your physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual concerns.

I will not boast about tomorrow, for I do not know what a day may bring forth. (Proverbs 27:1)

Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the strong man boast of his strength, and let not the rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts, boast about this: that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, who exercises lovingkindness, justice, and righteousness on earth; for in these I delight,” declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 9:23–24)

Lord, I thank You for Your loyal love and truth and for Your great and awesome wonders. I thank You that I have been born of God through faith in Christ Jesus. May I boast only of You.
