Daily Prayer: Year 1, Day 89

From A Simple Book of Prayers

Trusting in Him

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.

The Spirit helps me in my weakness, for I do not know what I ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for me with groans that words cannot express. And He who searches the hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. (Romans 8:26–27)

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.

Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord. But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. (Jeremiah 17:5, 7)

The fear of man brings a snare, but he who trusts in the Lord is set on high. (Proverbs 29:25)

Lord, praise You for the greatness of Your mercies and for rescuing the life of the needy. Thank You that I am in Christ and Christ is in me. May I trust in You and not put my hope in people.
