Prayer For Internet and Computer Time

Dear God, my Heavenly Father, my Shield, my Protector, my Fortress.

I ask You to fortify me with the grace of Your Holy Spirit while I dwell in the web of wires and connections, that is the internet.

Direct my hands and eyes only to that which is pleasing to You.

Help me to treat with love, charity and patience all those whom I encounter.

Make my computer more than a machine, render it:

  • A tool of growth, learning and spiritual development,
  • An altar for thanksgiving and blessing,
  • A conduit for faith and fellowship.

In the name of Jesus, I pray,

Amen.

Prayer: Be Near Me Father

Lord God the Almighty, the Spirit of Truth, God of Seeing—

Be near me Father, for I long to be near You.
I have made You, the Sovereign Lord, my refuge;
I draw near with a true heart, in full assurance of faith.
Your nearness, is my source of strength, of joy and of peace.

Be near me Father, through Your omnipresence;
You do not miss a move that I make; aware of every step I take.
Do not allow my sin to overtake me.
Help me to lead a disciplined life.
Let not my foolish decisions trap me in a dead end.

Be near me Father, through the Holy Spirit;
That everything I do begin with Your inspiration,
Continue with Your help, and
Reach perfection under Your guidance.
I hope to know the promise of Jesus, when He said to his disciples “I’m in my Father, and you’re in me, and I’m in you.”

Be near me Father, through Your Word.
As I read Your Word, let me hear You speaking.
As I read the psalms, let me hear You singing.
A I reflect on each page, let me see Your image.
Give me the strength of will to put Your Word into practice all the days of my life.

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Amen.

Morning Praise & Thanksgiving

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.

Amen.

Prayer of Saint Augustine

Today’s Morning Prayer

Prayer of Saint Augustine

Breathe in me O Holy Spirit,
that my thoughts may all be holy;
Act in me O Holy Spirit,
that my work, too, may be holy;
Draw my heart O Holy Spirit,
that I love but what is holy;
Strengthen me O Holy Spirit,
to defend all that is holy;
Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit,
that I always may be holy.

 

Amen.

Saint Augustine
