From A Simple Book of Prayers

Looking to Him

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.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
(Psalm 34:18–19)

God is my refuge and strength,
An ever-present help in trouble.
(Psalm 46:1)

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

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good report—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—I will think about such things. The things I have learned and received and heard and seen in those who walk with Christ I will practice, and the God of peace will be with me. (Philippians 4:8–9)

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for we are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:28)

Lord, praise You that Your righteousness endures forever and that Christ died for sins once for all. I thank You for being my light and salvation. May I set my mind on those things please You.
