Daily Prayer: Year 2, Day 65

From Handbook to Prayer

Renewal

Like Abraham, may I call upon the name of the Lord, the Everlasting God. (Genesis 13:4; 21:33)

May I listen carefully to the voice of the Lord my God and do what is right in Your sight; may I pay attention to Your commandments and keep all Your statutes. (Exodus 15:26)

May I rejoice in my tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into my heart through the Holy Spirit who was given to me. (Romans 5:3–5)

Pause to add your own prayers for personal renewal.

Intercession

Is this not the fast You have chosen:
To loose the bonds of wickedness,
To undo the cords of the yoke,
And to let the oppressed go free
And break every yoke?
Is it not to share our food with the hungry
And to provide the poor wanderer with shelter;
When we see the naked, to clothe him,
And not to turn away from our own flesh?
Then our light will break forth like the dawn,
And our healing will quickly appear,
And our righteousness will go before us;
The glory of the Lord will be our rear guard.
Then we will call, and the Lord will answer;
We will cry, and He will say, “Here I am.”
If we put away the yoke from our midst,
The pointing of the finger and malicious talk,
And if we extend our souls to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then our light will rise in the darkness,
And our gloom will become like the noonday. (Isaiah 58:6–10)
