Luther's Morning Pray

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, That You have kept me this night from all harm and danger; and I pray You that You would keep me this day also from sin and every evil, that all my doings and life may please You. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the wicked Foe may have no power over me. Amen.

Around us is a world lost in sin, above us is a God willing and able to save; it is ours to build the bridge that links heaven and earth, and prayer is the mighty instrument that does the work. If we do our part, God will do His.

When he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion
Matthew 9:36

Lord, Give us compassion like you have, help us to see as you see, In Thy name and for Thy sake, Amen.
Below is a prayer quoted from "Praying The Bible for Your Children" authored by David & Heather Kopp, Published by WaterBrook Press.

Praying from Psalm 19

Lord,

Today I pray that my children would love Your Word.

Becasue "the law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul," may my children realize how much they need Your refreshment (v.7)

Because "the statutes of the LORD are trustworthy," may my children take risks to build their lives on Your Word. (v.7)

Because "the precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart," may my children take genuine delight in studying the Bible. (v.8)

Because "the commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes," may my kids use Your Word to make important decisions. (v.8)

Because "the fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever," may my children revere, honor, and worship You all of their lives. (v.9)

Because "the ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous," may my children rely on them to test every other belief, philosophy, or lifestyle they encounter (v.9)

Because your ordinances "are sweeter than honey," may my children crave the Bible more than any other book (v.10)

I pray, Lord, that by loving Your Word, my children will receive important warnings about life and be blessed with great personal reward (v.11)

Amen.

The one concern of the devil is to keep the saints from prayer.
he fears nothing from
prayerless studies,
prayerless work,
prayerless religion.
he laughs at our toil,
mocks at our wisdow,
but trembles when we pray.

*Jonathan Edwards


He who is too busy to pray will be too busy to live a holy life. Satan had rather we let the grass grow on the path to our prayer chamber than anything else.
* E.M. Bounds
