A Prayer for the New Morning
Focus Scripture: Lamentations 3:22-23 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Almighty God, thank you for life and health and strength. Thank you for your new mercies every morning. Today, we pray for peace in our valleys, deliverance from bondage, protection from evil, justice for the oppressed, comfort for those who mourn, soundness for troubled minds, healing for the sick, rest for the weary, and shelter from the storms we are almost sure to encounter. Protect us from dangers seen and unseen, we pray. When we reach places of uncertainty today, O God, bring to our remembrance lessons from our past—that you are an “on time” God, a way maker, a deliverer, and a healer. You are the lover of our souls, and we bless your holy name. We lift your name on high, and in all things, we give you glory. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
