Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
Thank You for loving me. Thank You, God the Son, that You became man in the Person of Jesus Christ. Even though You, O Son, have always existed and have neither beginning nor end, yet, over 2,000 years ago, You took upon Yourself human flesh. You did this so You would be the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world.
Lord, I thank You for the salvation You have literally given me as a free gift. I have done nothing to deserve it. This gift was freely bestowed upon me the moment I turned from my sins and believed in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is not by my works or efforts that I am forgiven, saved, and born-again, but by Your grace. You are the God who justifies the ungodly when they turn to You.
Lord, in like manner, when others sin against me and then repent, help me to forgive them. May I model my forgiveness after Yours. Let me always stand ready to repent and desiring all to come to repentance!
Lord, cleanse me from the sins of which I am conscious. I confess them to You now. Restore to me the joy of my salvation. Though my salvation cannot be lost, its joy grows or wanes depending upon my walk with You.
I pray for my lost friends and family members, including: __________. Father, please send Your Spirit to draw them to Yourself and grant them the repentance that leads to life.
Today I pray for the nation of Nicaragua. Thank You that this nation has been free from communist control for some time, but there are also political tensions and anti-government activities that trouble this land. We thank You for those who know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and we pray that the evangelical church would multiply over the next decade.
We remember the International Bible Society. Thank You that they provide low-cost Bibles in many languages. Thank You for using them as part of evangelizing and discipling this world.
Locally, we pray for our city/county treasurer. Help he or she to be effective, honest, and a blessing to our government. If he or she does not know You, we pray that this would change!
Please go before me today. Open the right doors and close the wrong doors, I pray, in Jesusí Name, Amen.
