Below are Prayers for Today 3rd August 2022, Morning and Evening Prayers

Gracious Father, we come to You at the opening of the day to crave Your blessing. We thank You for the rest of the night. We laid us down and slept; we awaked; for You sustained us. We will not be afraid of ten thousands who might set themselves against us round about. You are our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble.

Now, our Father, send us out into the new day, on new errands. We want to take our orders from You. Incline our hearts to keep Your commandments. Cleanse us from secret faults and sins; keep us back also from presumptuous sins. You are able to keep us from falling — and we commit our souls to Your holy guardianship.

Deliver us from the Evil One. We have no power to stand against his crafty assaults, and can only entrust the keeping of our souls to You, as to a faithful Creator and Friend. Save us from the Tempter.

We ask that You will make us strong for duty. We have many things to do, which will require wisdom and persistence. Give us the strength which comes out of victoriousness in struggle. Fit us for doing good at home — one to another.

May our home receive rich blessings from You. Let nothing embitter our affection, or mar our fellowship. Make our love for each other more sincere, more patient, thoughtful, and kind. May we learn the lessons of love better and better.

May the light shine out from the windows of our home, to show others outside how to live more sweetly. May Your grace be upon us in proportion to our need, filling heart and life, and preparing us for every experience we may have. We ask all in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

See Evening Prayer

O God, who has taught us in Your holy word to be anxious for nothing — but in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, to make known our requests unto You — hear us this evening as we come to You with our supplications. There are many things in our lives which might cause us to be anxious, were it not for the promises of Your love.

There have been things in the life of this day which naturally would make us worry. There have been discouragements — not all our expectations have been realized. It would be easy for us to be anxious — if we would yield to our feelings.

But we remember our Savior’s earnest teachings against worrying — that we ought to take no anxious thought, because our Heavenly Father knows what things we need, and that we ought to seek first the kingdom of Heaven — and we want to obey His counsel.

Help us to learn this beautiful lesson. It is not easy to learn it. We are prone to fret, complain, and worry. Help us to overcome this disposition, and never to yield to its sway.

Help us to learn the lesson Your servant Paul tells us that he had learned — in whatever state we are, therein to be content. May the love of Jesus in us be so strong, that we shall not mind the little trials along the way. May Your peace in our hearts be so deep, so tranquil, so controlling — that all frets and discontents shall be swallowed up in its blessed fullness.

Help us to follow so intently the one essential thing of Christian life — the doing of Your will — that no hardness of the way, no cross bearing, no difficulties, no discouragements — shall have any power to divert our hearts and thoughts from our supreme purpose. We ask for grace to learn this lesson, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
