Daily Prayer

Focus Scripture: Psalm 30:11-12 You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!

  • People who are addicted.
  • Prayer groups and prayer warriors.
  • Those who are stuck in jobs they hate.
  • Victims of police brutality.
  • People who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
  • People who are burdened down by guilt and shame.
  • People whose friendships are under attack.

We receive your blessings in the name of Jesus. And we thank you in advance. Amen.
