Prayer of the Day for TUESDAY, November 21, 2017
Mighty Father God, we thank You for this day — that it even exists, and especially, that we can live in it, that we can know it through the sense you gave us and breathe the air you have made. Your bounty and goodness to us is beyond understanding. We worship and praise you above all things, because you are above all things. Your hand has made them and your love has forgiven us and blessed us.
Keep us and those we love from danger, sickness, accident this day, we pray. Help us to turn our back on evil in all of its myriad forms, to turn aside from the temptation that besets us from within ourselves and from our reaction to the world outside. Broaden our minds and give us the gift of hearing truth even when we do not want to hear it, when a false thought is embedded in our minds and the truth disagrees with our preconceptions.
Fill us with gratitude. Give us the courage to change the things that are contrary to your Word, even when they are ingrained and it is painful for us to give them up. Let us realize our sins and give us the grace to repent it and seek your forgiveness. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, Amen.
