Daily Prayer: Year 2, Day 128

From Handbook to Prayer

Renewal

Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy; love does not boast, it is not arrogant, it does not behave rudely; it does not seek its own, it is not provoked, it keeps no record of wrongs; it does not rejoice in unrighteousness but rejoices with the truth; it bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:4–8)

May my love abound more and more in full knowledge and depth of insight, so that I may be able to approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ—having been filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. (Philippians 1:9–11)

Pause to add your own prayers for personal renewal. 

Petition

Since I died with Christ to the basic principles of this world, may I not submit to its regulations as though I still belonged to it. (Colossians 2:20)

  • Growth in Christ
    • Greater desire to know and please Him

    • Grace to practice His presence
    • Grace to glorify Him in my life
  • My activities for this day
  • Special concerns

Intercession

There should be no division in the body, but its members should have the same concern for each other. If one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now we are the body of Christ, and each one of us is a member of it. (1 Corinthians 12:25–27)
