A Prayer of the Day

A Prayer of the Day Audio Version
Father God, Holy God, Supreme Sovereign Creator, LORD whom in creation paints the beauty and glory of the day in the richest palate, colors we cannot duplicate, vivid oranges and reds, greens, yellows, blues, violets, purples, magentas, shades of pastels, with shadows and lights, swirls and designs innumerable, majesty in light shimmering mists, rainbows in the after storms, sunrises and sunsets, plants and creatures in varieties that leave us breathless, Oh Father, what an artist Thou are.

Father, in our very lives you have brought beauty from ashes, glory from pain and sorrow, joy from sadness and despair, how glorious is the birth from above as You have let us glimpse the heavenlies and bring a peace of heaven to earth in our hearts.

Father we pray the increase of our praise and worship in an infinite degree of expression that we may glorify You as the earth and the heavenlies and beyond, for how worthy You are of the richest of praise, Hallelujah!

Father, in awesome reverence of Your glory we bow in remorseful repentance delivering all our sins, the very leaven of our lives, unto Your present and righteous judgment that we might be forgiven of every transgression and wilful thought and deed. Father, we thank you for the faithful forgiveness and complete absolution of our misdeeds, covering us in the Blood of the Lamb.

Father we enter Your courts with thanksgiving, your halls with praise, mindful of the great sacrifice of Calvary, where an innocent Lamb was slain, for our sins, that they might no longer be counted to us. Father we hide this event in our hearts, to remind us if we ever need to fuel a fire of forgiveness, to motivate the opportunity to commit an act of compassion and selflessness, to ready us to be examples of Christ as far as unto death in the laying down of our lives for a friend. Father in forgiveness, in sacrifice, in obedience and selflessness is the reality of the agape Love of God.

Father, have us to realize all of this is within our grasp as we appropriate the presence of the Holy Spirit within us. Father, consecrate, devote and dedicate us to the tasks of living for Christ, perpetuating the legacy of Love, that the Good News of the Word might burn in our hearts as a passion for the salvation of our neighbors, that we in our lives might fulfill the Great Commandments of Love.

Father, please be attentive to all the prayers of the saints as we present the desires of our hearts before Your throne of mercy, grace and peace, the seat of all power and authority, eternal in the heavens, in the name of Jesus and by the Power of His Blood, amen.
