A Daily Prayer based on Genesis 33 for 10/23/2016

Lord God, the Mighty One of Israel, As I pray this day for ______________________ and for myself, I pray especially for any among us who are estranged from someone in our past, a family member or friend. I pray that the day may come when we will experience reconciliation with them. I pray that you will be gracious to us, as you were to Jacob. Grant each of us Jacob's humility, that we will be to see ourselves as the servant of anyone we have offended. Grant us wisdom to know what actions we should take to pursue peace. I pray that you will do such a work in the heart of our adversaries that they will come to embrace us and throw their arms around us. May we find such favor in the eyes of those who have been angry with us that for us to see their faces would be like seeing your face because we are received so favorably. I pray that you will continue to guide each of us into our future and enlarge our territory. May we continue to worship you at the altar we build for you in the Spirit. This I ask in the name of Jesus, amen.


Never before in the history of our country has America faced a moral crisis like the one before us today. The foundations of our government are crumbling right before our eyes. Our churches are abandoning God, our families are in shambles. There is only one hope for restoration - the Lord Jesus Christ. If we are to see restoration, it will come only by the grace of God's mercy. We have the assurance of Scripture that "if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us" (1 John 5:14). There is no better way to pray according to the will of God than by praying his own word back to him. These daily prayers are crafted, as much as possible, to incorporate the very words of the Scripture.
