“Pray always at all times in all seasons of life.”
1 Thessalonians 5:17
Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.
For the LORD is the great God,
the great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.
Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the LORD our Maker;
for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.
Psalm 95:1-7 (NIV)
Father in heaven thank you for walking with me this morning.
Now as the afternoon is before me
continue your blessed presence and help me walk in obedience to your will.
May others be blessed by encounters with me.
Guide my steps, guard my mouth,
my thoughts and my attitudes as the day unfolds.
In Jesus’ name Amen.
support us all the day long of this troublous life,
until the shadows lengthen, and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over, and our work is done.
Then, Lord, in thy mercy,
grant us a safe lodging, a holy rest,
and peace at the last.
