Today’s Morning Prayer: Morning Praise & Thanksgiving
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.”
— 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Thank You, Heavenly Father, for the honor to be able to awake this morning and talk to You in prayer.
Thank You, Father, for Your mercy and grace — Your willingness to walk with me in spite of my sinful nature.
Thank You, Father, for Your faithfulness. I am filled with joy to know that You are always with me. It gives me courage and peace knowing that you are my constant partner.
Thank You, Father, for your loving discipline when I give in to my flesh. Forgive me for the times when I resisted Your Holy Spirit when he tried to give me godly counsel.
I praise You, Father, because You are righteous, and just in all Your ways.
As You have been merciful to me, I desire to be merciful to others.
As You have blessed me, I want to be a blessing to others.
As You have forgiven me, I want to forgive those who wrong me.
Lord, I commend my head, my heart, my tongue, …my life, to Your spirit. Let my life be a reflection of Your glory, when I don’t speak of Your gospel, may my actions and lifestyle, speak for You.
Glory be You Father, and to Your Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
