A Daily Prayer based on Mark 7:1-23

Lord Jesus, I pray that you will grant ______________________ and me freedom from legalism in all its forms. Please point out to us any ways in which we are letting go of the commands of God in order to hold on to the traditions of men. May we be governed by your truth and not by teaching and rules which originate with men. Protect us in our personal lives, in our families, in our culture and in our churches from ever nullifying your word or setting it aside in order to observe merely human ideas about life. I pray that we will not only honor you with our lips in conversation and worship, but will also be close to you in our hearts. Alert us to any form of hypocrisy in our own lives so that our worship of you may be genuine, deep, and from the heart. Lord, you here declare all foods clean. Free us from thinking that one kind of diet is morally superior to any other. Instead, may we focus on the truth that it is not what goes into us that makes us unclean or common but what comes out of us. Purify us within, in our hearts, so that we may not be made unclean by the things that come out of us. In particular, I pray that you will cleanse us from all evil thoughts, opinions, motives, and reasoning that we may think your thoughts after you. Prompt us to examine every thought that comes into our minds and reject every thought that is not consistent with your will. May we take captive every thought and bring it into obedience to you. Free us from sexual immorality and adultery and lewdness in thought as well as behavior. Cleanse us from theft and murder, including hatred in our hearts toward anyone. Set us free from greed, envy, malice, deceit, slander, arrogance, and folly. May we be clean in thought, conversation, character, and conduct and so please you and your Father. This I ask in your name, 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."

Welcome

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.
