A Daily Prayer based on Colossians 3:18-4:18

Lord Jesus, In your name, I wrestle in prayer this day for ______________________ and for myself, that we may stand firm in all the will of God, and be mature and fully assured. I pray that each of us will be a faithful minister and servant in the kingdom of God, and able to encourage the hearts of others and be a comfort to them. May each of us fulfill the ministry and complete the work we have received in the Lord. I pray for every marriage represented among us, that each wife will submit to her husband, as is fitting in you. May each husband love his wife and not be harsh with her or be embittered against her in any way. I pray that the children in every home will obey their parents in everything because it pleases you. I pray that fathers will not provoke their children or embitter them so that they do not become discouraged. I pray for every employee among us, that we will obey those who have authority over us in the workplace in everything, not only when we are being watched and to win their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for you. May we work with all our heart, as if we were working for you and not for men. Remind us that we will receive an inheritance from you as a reward. May we serve you as the Lord Christ. I pray that everyone of us who exercises authority in the workplace will provide those under us with what is right and just and fair. Remind us that we also have a Master in heaven. I pray that we will continue steadfast in watchful and thankful prayer and devote ourselves to it. May you open to us a door for your word, that we may have opportunity to speak to others the mystery of Christ. May we speak your word clearly, as we ought to speak. Teach us to conduct ourselves wisely toward outsiders, and to make the best use of time and the most of every opportunity. I pray that our speech will always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that we may know how we ought to answer each person. May your grace be with us forever. Amen.

"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."

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.
