Daily Prayer: Year 1, Day 75

From A Simple Book of Prayers

Holding Fast to What is Good

Lord, You have invited me to pray for the needs of others; and since You desire what is best for them, I take this opportunity to bring these requests to You.

For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Romans 13:9)

Take a moment to lift up the needs of your family and friends, and to offer up any other burdens for others that the Lord brings to mind.

The wisdom that comes from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, submissive, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. (James 3:17–18)

I will examine all things, hold fast to the good, and abstain from every form of evil. (1 Thessalonians 5:21–22)

Lord, I praise You for Your magnificent work in creation and thank You for making the light of the knowledge of Christ shine in my heart. May I practice the wisdom that comes from above and cling to the good, avoiding every form of evil.
