Daily Prayer: Year 1, Day 38

From A Simple Book of Prayers

Living in Purity

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 fear God and keep His commandments, for this applies to every person. (Ecclesiastes 12:13)

Give me understanding, and I will keep Your law
And observe it with all my heart.
Make me walk in the path of Your commands,
For there I find delight.
Incline my heart to Your testimonies
And not to selfish gain.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things,
And revive me in Your way. (Psalm 119:34–37)

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.

I desire to have a clear conscience and to live honorably in all things. (Hebrews 13:18)

As an alien and a stranger in the world, I will abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against my soul. (1 Peter 2:11)

Lord, I thank You for Your compassion for the afflicted and the poor and the way in which Your Son demonstrated that compassion. I thank You that He is the living bread that came down from heaven, and I ask that I would abstain from those things that are displeasing to You.
