Psalm 119:57-64 Prayer

Father, Forgive me for believing my fruit comes from idols, not from you. You are my portion, yet I often live as though other things were my portion. When I choose sin, I declare that you are not my portion. That you are not all my fruit. That you are not sufficient, or good enough. Forgive me and instill in […]

Confession from Psalm 119:33-40

Father of Mercies and God of all comfort, comfort your servants today as we mourn over our remaining sin. We have committed ourselves to you, but we are still sinful. We know that when we disobey your Word, we build our house on sand, yet we have continued to choose the bad portion. We pray with the Psalmist: “Give me […]

Prayer from Psalm 119:25-32

Merciful God, our souls cling to the dust. Give us life according to your word! We thank you that you hear our cries despite our many sins against you.

Confession from Psalm 119:17-24

Gracious LORD, you have dealt bountifully with us. We were once blind, but now we see wondrous things in your word. Your commandments were hidden from us because of our willful refusal.

Psalm 119:9-16 Confession

“Dear God beyond all praising, you are blessed. We confess this day that we do not deserve your blessing. We have not kept our way pure. We have not guarded ourselves according to your Word. Instead, we have let the words of the world, the flesh, and the devil speak to our hearts. Forgive us for Jesus’ sake! Blot out […]

A Prayer to the Lord of Glory

Heavenly Father, you proclaim to us that Jesus is the Lord of glory, yet we often view glory according to the flesh. We regard princes and princesses, seeking to be among those who are rich, beautiful, and popular, and despairing when we are not. This affects how we treat our neighbors, whom we are called to love without favoritism. Forgive […]

A Prayer for Evangelism

Pure and Holy Triune God, We confess this day that we have failed in various ways to uphold your law. Particularly, we have shrunk away from sharing the gospel. We confess that even our zeal for evangelism has at times been mere posturing. Our fear of rejection and persecution, of ridicule and mockery has given us pause. We have not […]

Another Prayer Based on Jonah 1

Gracious God and Father, we humble ourselves before you and plead for forgiveness today. Isaiah tells us that sin separates us from you, and we know it all too well. Sin also separates us from the neighbors we are called to love. You care for everything and everyone you created, but we are focused only on ourselves. When we run […]

A Prayer from Micah 5

Holy God, there is none like you. We bow down before your infinite majesty, your perfect justice, and your inexplicable mercy. You have done what human ‘wisdom’ cannot explain—bestowed salvation on those weak and lowly, saved us through Christ crucified. We give thanks to you for saving us through faith in Christ. You have done this despite our craving of […]
