Daily Prayer: Year 2, Day 158

From Handbook to Prayer


May I put away all bitterness and anger and wrath and shouting and slander, along with all malice. And may I be kind and compassionate to others, forgiving them just as God in Christ also forgave me. (Ephesians 4:31–32)

May I do all things without complaining or arguing, so that I may become blameless and pure, a child of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom I shine as a light in the world, holding fast the word of life. (Philippians 2:14–16)

Pause to add your own prayers for personal renewal.


As one who has been chosen of God, holy and beloved, may I put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with others and forgiving others even as the Lord forgave me; and above all these things, may I put on love, which is the bond of perfection. (Colossians 3:12–14)

Relationships with others: 

  • Greater love and compassion for others
  • Loved ones
  • Those who do not know Christ
  • Those in need

Do you not say, “Four months more and then comes the harvest”? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are white for harvest. Even now the reaper draws his wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. (John 4:35–36)
