* Sunday - For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. (1 Corinthians 1:18)

Hear our prayer, O LORD, our dear heavenly Father ~ we seek your kindness and mercy on this Lord’s Day that arrives with even more spectacular blessings of a material and spiritual nature. Our souls feel revived because of the flood that restores our entire inner-being as we live with trust in Christ as Lord. Help us to live with confidence in the supreme act of loving kindness that was done for us on the awful cross many centuries ago on a hill just outside Jerusalem. Empower us to speak and live in such a way that others will also be turned to obey your wonderful plan of salvation. We earnestly pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

* Monday - For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. (Hebrews 4:15 ESV)

O LORD God Almighty, our dear Father in heaven ~ thank you for the amazing wonder of your creative genius that includes our own self-awareness as your creatures whom you love. Grant us more of the superior wisdom of Jesus Christ your Son, who now serves as the true and superior High Priest who once left the glory of heaven and lived as one of us so that he knows our troubles, joys and sorrows, and is empathetic toward our wants and needs. We come before you now dear Lord with faith that you forgive our sins as we trust and obey the perfect teaching and example of Christ our Lord. We humbly pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.


* Tuesday - And when they (Jesus and Peter) got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God." (Matthew 14:32-33)

Gracious, holy and merciful God, our dear Father in heaven ~ we enter your gates with thanksgiving in our hearts on this new day that arrives with reminders of your power and glory that fills the entire universe. Grant us more of the superior wisdom of Christ as we follow the leading of your indwelling Spirit. Increase our faith so that when we experience moments of wonder we will proclaim to others the magnificent deity of Jesus our Lord.


* Wednesday - “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters. (Luke 11:23)

Dear Father in heaven ~ thank you for blessing us with the breath of life on this new day that arrives with everything we need to sustain our lives as we take our stand with Christ Jesus in the great spiritual war that rages around the world. Give us sufficient wisdom we need in order to teach the truth from your word in a manner that everyone will be able to understand your message of eternal life. Help us to work with Christ in bringing lost souls to an understanding that they are lost without Christ. We pray in the most precious name of Jesus, Amen.


* Thursday - Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near. (Revelation 1:3 ESV)

Dear Father in heaven ~ we humbly and hopefully lift our hearts and minds before you on this new day. As we look upon the various aspects of your incredible creation, we rejoice that we are very blessed to be able to know you as our Father. Help us to take advantage of the many opportunities we have to read your Spirit inspired word out loud so that some who never open a Bible may at least hear a few words of infinite wisdom that will show them your way of eternal life. Give us wisdom so that we will daily make preparation for the glorious coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, in whose precious name we pray, Amen.


* Friday - “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” (Psalm 46:10 ESV)

Almighty God, dear Father of all mankind ~ we humbly shut our mouths and subserviently bow before your great presence that fills the entire universe. Grant all world leaders and citizens of this earth the desire and motivation to exert all mental and physical energies toward the publication of your righteousness as we exalt your glorious Son - Jesus the Christ for all people. Give all followers of Christ the wisdom to allow your Spirit to lead and comfort us during this era of one new crisis followed by another. Come now Lord Jesus! We pray in your precious name and by your authority, Amen.


* Saturday -hat am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also. (1 Corinthians 14:15 ESV)

Most holy and awesome God, our dear Father in heaven ~ thank you for the expensive gift of life on this new day. Grant us wisdom as we search the Scriptures for truth that will guide us in this life to live properly for Christ and assure us of an eternal home in heaven as we trust in the Lord our Savior. Help us to express ourselves in worship with sincere hearts of praise that understand the importance of your words of truth and holiness. We fervently pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
