A Diary of Private Prayer: Friday Morning

This week’s content comes from The Diary of Private Prayer By John Baillie
Each day you will receive a morning and an evening prayer. Join the the rest of the church as we pray the same prayer at the same time (if you can) at 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM each day.

Friday 8:00 AM Prayer

Almighty and most merciful Father, your power and love eternally work together for the protection of your children. Give me grace today to put my trust in you.  Father, I pray; for faith to believe that you rule the world in truth, justice, and love; for faith to believe that if I seek first your kingdom and righteousness, you will provide for my needs; for faith not to be anxious about tomorrow, but to believe the love you have given me in the past will continue into the future; for faith to see your loving purposes unfold in all that is happening in our time; for faith to be calm and brave in the face of any dangers I may meet with while doing my duty; for faith to believe in the power of your love to melt my hard heart and remove my sin; for faith to put my own trust in love rather than in force, when other people harden their hearts against me; for faith to believe in the ultimate victory of your Holy Spirit over disease and death and all the powers of darkness; for faith to learn from any sufferings that you call me to endure; for faith to leave in your hands the welfare of all my loved ones, especially                                      .  Lord, all my ancestors were justified in their trust in you. Rid my heart of all pointless anxieties and paralyzing fears.  Give me a cheerful and buoyant spirit and peace in doing your will; for Christ’s sake. Amen.
