(an acrostic prayer)
Precious Lord and Father of all mankind, we come in worship to hear again Your promises as You speak Your word to us today.
Review Your word in our hearts to see if we have allowed it to be hidden there to control our outward actions, O Lord!
Open up the windows of our souls to allow You to shine in to bring light to our darkness. Please, O Lord, shine on us today.
Move us from relying on the promises of this world to fully believing and living in Your promises, O God!
Instill in us the understanding of Your will for our lives. Help us to live in the power of Your Holy Spirit in us, dear Lord.
Suffice it to say, Father, we cannot live in Your will without living in Your Spirit and trusting in Your promises.
Enthuse us, O God, to share the truth of Your word with this world where we live and breathe and have our being.
Show us again, Father, that the word became flesh and dwelt among us. May we living in that assurance today.
Open our eyes, Father. Remove the scales that we have allowed Satan to place on our vision. Renew our sight today, O God!
Forgive our lack of trusting that “You do just what You say, in Your word,” O Lord.
Give us the daily sustenance that You promise in Your word, O God. Give us strength to live for You today.
Over us, pour Your grace, Father. that we may be useful to You in Your kingdom’s work in this place.
Dismiss us from Your worship with a renewed purpose to lean on Your promises instead of the assurances of this world.
In the name of Your greatest promise, even Your Son, Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen!
