Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
We call You Father because You are our Father, first by virtue of creation, second by virtue of regeneration, and third by virtue of Your Person. You are the Father in heaven. Thank You that as a Father has pity on His children, so You have pity upon us. Thank You that, as a good father loves, trains, and cares for the wellbeing of His children, You care for us. We glory in that we have been adopted into Your family by faith in Jesus Christ.
Lord, we thank You that You have called us to be a kingdom of priests. We have direct access to heaven through Jesus Christ our Lord, we can intercede for those Who are lost or Who need special spiritual attention, and we can offer You the sacrifice of praise, namely, the fruit of our lips. We are a royal priesthood as children of the King.
So Lord, help me to pray without ceasing, praying off and on throughout the day. May I remember to send up casual and quick prayers and praise all day long.
Lord, help me to manage my finances in a way that pleases You. Prosper me to the degree You see fit. Help me trust You during good times and bad, and may I be a good steward of what You have given me.
Your Word tells me that if I confess my sins, You are faithful and just to forgive me of them, and You will cleanse me from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). So I bring my sins before You now. I do not excuse them, but I freely admit them and ask for Your forgiveness.
Today I remember the tiny European nation of Andorra. Since most of its citizens work in the hospitality business, they come in contact with many others. Father, we pray that Your Spirit might reach these Andorrans, and that these folks would then share the Gospel with Europeans and others who frequent that place.
I want to remember the Bible-based Rescue Missions throughout our lands. So many people go through their doors, eat their meals, and are clothed with clothing they provide. Many come to know Christ, and some testify of lives that have been totally transformed. May we see more genuinely transformed lives. We pray that the work of these missions would be appreciated not only by believers, but we pray that decent lost people would also value their contribution and consider the claims of Christ because of this labor of love.
Today we remember our city/county building inspectors. Help them to be honest, fair, and out for the best interests and safety of their communities.
Minister grace to me throughout this day, I pray, in Jesusí Name, Amen.
