A Prayer for You Today (1)

October 16, 2023

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

1 John 5:14

Dear friends.


God wants us to bring our requests to him, and He wants to answer our prayers. (John 14:13–14) This is why we often ask God to continue to teach us how to pray according to His will to the praise of His glory.


A prayer for you today.



Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Matthew 25:12


Father, thank you for covering us with the righteousness of Your Son. Please, by Your Spirit, press the gospel deeply in our hearts and sanctify and strengthen us to believe You will make Christ known to us more beautifully and in the deepest parts of us.


Rescue us from our fallen natures and help us to understand how dear we all are to You.


Please teach us the way of faith; lead us into Your rest. The wind blows us out to sea—the helm does not answer to our puny hand; You alone can steer us over the bar between the sunken rocks and safe into the fair haven. We depend entirely upon You and need You to bring us to Yourself.


To be wisely directed and steered into safety and peace is Your gift and Yours alone. Today and onward, be pleased to deal kindly with Your servants. For Jesus' sake. Amen.


-Taken and slightly abridged from many prayer books.


Grace and peace to you and yours.
