Daily Prayer: Year 2, Day 146

From Handbook to Prayer

Renewal

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. (Matthew 5:3–7)

May these beatitudes become a reality in my life.

Pause to add your own prayers for personal renewal. 

Petition 

May I not wear myself out to get rich;
Give me the understanding to cease.
May I not set my desire on what flies away,
For wealth surely sprouts wings
And flies into the heavens like an eagle. (Proverbs 23:4–5)
