Monday

A PASSAGE TO GUIDE OUR THOUGHTS:
Psalm 8

A PRAYER TO USE:
The heavens declare thy glory,The earth thy riches, The universe is thy temple; Thy presence fills immensity, Yet thou hast of they pleasure created life, and communicated happiness; Thou hast made me what I am, and given me what i have; In thee I live and move and have by being; I thank thee for thy riches to me in Jesus, Give me to feel a need of his continual saviourhood.

A FEW FREE PRAYER IDEAS:

  • For us to give testimony to God’s good gifts in our lives as an encouragement to those around us
  • For leaders around us to be captured by the awe of Christ and depend on the Lord for wisdom

 

Tuesday

A PASSAGE TO GUIDE OUR THOUGHTS:
Psalm 51

A PRAYER TO USE:
Give me a deeper repentance, a horror of sin, a dread of it’s reproach; Help me chastely to flee it, and jealously to resolve that my heart shall be thine alone. Give me a deeper trust, that I may lose myself to find myself in thee, the ground of my rest, the spring of my being. Give me a deeper knowledge of thyself as Savior, Master, Lord, and King. I am nothing but that thou makest me, I have nothing by that i receive from thee, I can be nothing but that grace adorns me.

A FEW FREE PRAYER IDEAS:

  • That we would be aware of God revealing sin in us, lament it and be ready to confess it
  • That our actions would reflect a humble heart emptied of pride and self justification

 

Wednesday

A PASSAGE TO GUIDE OUR THOUGHTS:
Psalm 121

A PRAYER TO USE:
I am sadly harassed by doubts, fears, unbelief, in a felt spiritual darkness. I sink in deep mire beneath storms and waves, in horror and distress unutterable. Help me, O Lord, to throw myself absolutely and wholly on thee, for better, for worse, without comfort, and all by hopeless. Give me peace of soul, confidence, enlargement of mind, morning joy that comes after night heaviness.

A FEW FREE PRAYER IDEAS:

  • For us to be aware of others’ needs and live out the fruits of our faith
  • For protection, encouragement, and comfort as we are isolated from one another
  • To meditate on the Lord as our keeper

 

Thursday

A PASSAGE TO GUIDE OUR THOUGHTS:
Psalm 124

A PRAYER TO USE:
Before thee I am nothing but vanity, iniquity, perishing; I cannot deliver myself and am in despair. But a resource is found in thee, for without my desert or desire thou didst devise an everlasting plan, honourable to thy perfections, and which angels desired to look into. May I, a convinced and self-despairing sinner, find Jesus as the power unto salvation, his death the centre of all relief, the source of all gospel-blessings.

A FEW FREE PRAYER IDEAS:

  • Thankfulness to God for salvation through Jesus
  • Dependence on him for daily sustainment and deliverance

 

Friday

A PASSAGE TO GUIDE OUR THOUGHTS:
Psalm 133

A PRAYER TO USE:
Order all my ways by thy holy Word and make thy commandments the joy of my heart, that by them I may have happy converse with thee. May I grow in thy love and manifest it to mankind. Spirit of love, make me like the loving Jesus; Give me his benevolent temper, his beneficent actions, that i may shine before men to thy glory.

A FEW FREE PRAYER IDEAS:

  • For jealousy and selfish motives be put to death in our lives, communities, churches, and government
  • For Parkside Westside to be a place where Christ’s perfect love is reflected in our unity, care, and deferring to one another

 

Saturday

A PASSAGE TO GUIDE OUR THOUGHTS:
Psalm 145

A PRAYER TO USE:
When I come into thy presence I see the glory of thy perfections, the throne of eternal and universal empire, the ten thousand times ten thousand who minister to thee. Impress my mind with the consciousness of thy greatness, not to drive me from thee but to inspire me to approach thee; Not to diminish my confidence in thee, but to lead me to admire they great condescension.

A FEW FREE PRAYER IDEAS:

  • For us to stand in awe of God’s wondrous works and speak of His mighty deeds
  • That we would raise up the next generation to know the Lord

 

Sunday

A PASSAGE TO GUIDE OUR THOUGHTS:
Psalm 146

A PRAYER TO USE:
Thou wast incarnate, didst suffer, rise, ascend for my sake; Thy departure was not a token of separation by a pledge of return; Thou wilt come to raise my body from the dust, and re-unite it to my soul. Every event and circumstance of my life will be dealt with, and after judgement, peace and rest, life and service, employment and enjoyment, for thine elect. O God, keep me in this faith, and ever looking for Christ’s return.

A FEW FREE PRAYER IDEAS:

  • Thankfulness to God for sustainment in life
  • That we would be regularly praying for one another’s spiritual growth as we live and look forward to Christ’s return
