A Daily Prayer based on Matthew 26:17-29

Lord Jesus, I pray for myself this day and for ______________________. I thank you that you gave your body on the cross for us, and in your flesh made the law with its commandments and regulations powerless to condemn us. I thank you for canceling the written code that was against us and stood opposed to us, and taking it away by nailing it to the cross. I thank you for shedding your blood on the cross for us and establishing with us a new covenant. Your blood of this covenant was poured out for us for the forgiveness of our sins. I pray that we will bring every sin to the foot of the cross and place them all underneath your blood so that we may walk in forgiveness. Strengthen our conviction that you are the bread of life, the living bread that comes down from heaven. May we recognize that your flesh is real spiritual food and your blood real spiritual drink. By faith, may we spiritually eat your flesh and drink your blood so that we may remain in you and you in us. As we feed on you as the bread of life, and drink your blood, the blood poured out for our forgiveness, I claim your promise that we will live because of you, and not just live but live forever. I pray that you will raise us up on the last day because of our faith in you. 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."

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.
