Daily Prayer: Year 2, Day 71

From Handbook to Prayer


May the Lord my God be with me as You were with our fathers; may You never leave me nor forsake me. Incline my heart to You, to walk in all Your ways and to keep Your commands and Your statutes and Your judgments, which You commanded our fathers. May all the peoples of the earth know that the Lord is God; there is no other. Let my heart be fully committed to the Lord my God, to walk in Your statutes and keep Your commandments, as at this day. (1 Kings 8:5758, 6061)

As one who knows righteousness, who has Your law in my heart, may I not fear the reproach of men or be terrified by their revilings. (Isaiah 51:7)

Pause to add your own prayers for personal renewal. 


Joseph said to his brothers, “Do not be grieved or angry with yourselves for selling me here, for God sent me before you to save lives. He sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance. So it was not you who sent me here, but God.” (Genesis 45:5, 78)

Like Joseph, may I seek your perspective on the circumstances of my life.

Spiritual insight: 

  • Understanding and insight into the Word
  • Understanding my identity in Christ: (1) Who I am, (2) Where I came from, and (3) Where I am going
  • Understanding God’s purpose for my life
