A Daily Prayer based on Proverbs 30 for 4/25/2017

Lord God, We affirm that you are the one who gathers up the wind in the hollow of your hands, and wraps up the waters of the earth in your cloak. We declare that you have established the ends of the earth, and that we are ignorant and have no wisdom or understanding or knowledge compared to yours. I pray that ______________________ and I will have the deep conviction that every word from you is flawless, and that you are a shield to those who take refuge in you. I pray that we will not add to your words, so that you will not have to rebuke us and prove us liars. I ask you to keep falsehood and lies far from us, and to give us neither poverty or riches. I pray that you will not give us so much that we will be tempted to disown you or say, "Who is the Lord?" And I pray that you will give us our daily bread so that we may not become poor and steal and so dishonor your name. Keep us from slandering those around us so that we may not be cursed and pay for it. Prevent us from playing the fool and exalting ourselves or from planning evil of any kind, so that we may not stir up anger and produce strife. May we be extremely wise like the ant, who has little strength yet stores up food in the summer. Cause us to be stately in our stride, and to move with stately bearing, like the lion who is mighty among beasts and retreats before nothing. Lord, you tell us that locusts are wise because they have no king yet advance together in ranks. We pray that our congregation and the entire church in our city will be like an army which advances together in ranks under our king, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is in his name we pray. 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.
