Daily Prayer

Daily Prayer Focus: Psalm 5: 1-3, NKJV

Give ear to my words, O LordConsider my meditation. Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray. My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; In the morning I will direct it to You,
And I will look up.

Dear God, we cry out to you today. Our hearts are a little bit heavy this morning. Our desire is to be loving, decent, and thoughtful people.  Help us to live out the wholesome principles that Jesus taught us. Give us what we need, oh God, to help our brothers and sisters endure this day. We pray especially for:

  • People who are lost and alone
  • People who are victims of hate
  • Leaders in governmental positions
  • People who have been betrayed
  • School administrators and teachers
  • Children who are vulnerable
  • Victims of natural disasters
  • Victims of man-made disasters
  • Parents who have lost their children to violence
  • People in nursing homes, hospice, and hospitals
  • People were mourning the loss of loved ones

God, we know that you are faithful. Please hear our prayers and answer. Have mercy on your people. Have mercy on your world. Amen.

Daily Prayer

Daily Prayer Focus: 2 Kings 4: 1-7, NLT

One day the widow of a member of the group of prophets came to Elisha and cried out, “My husband who served you is dead, and you know how he feared the Lord. But now a creditor has come, threatening to take my two sons as slaves.” “What can I do to help you?” Elisha asked. “Tell me, what do you have in the house?” “Nothing at all, except a flask of olive oil,” she replied. And Elisha said, “Borrow as many empty jars as you can from your friends and neighbors. Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Pour olive oil from your flask into the jars, setting each one aside when it is filled.” So she did as she was told. Her sons kept bringing jars to her, and she filled one after another. Soon every container was full to the brim! “Bring me another jar,” she said to one of her sons. “There aren’t any more!” he told her. And then the olive oil stopped flowing. When she told the man of God what had happened, he said to her, “Now sell the olive oil and pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on what is left over.”

God, our Provider, we come humbly today thanking you for filling our cup and letting it overflow. We lift up others and ourselves today. You know our needs even before we ask. Meet each person where we need it most. Please hear our prayers and answer. Forgive our sin. We pray that you heal our souls; heal our land. Have mercy on your people. Have mercy on your world. Amen.
