The Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. – Psalm 145:18
Eternal Father, every day is a gift from you and we worship and give you thanks, celebrating each day, the greatness and goodness of your kind, powerful, and gracious nature. We know that your presence is manifested to all who, in faith, follow your Divine Will. To work our life in collaboration with your Holy Word, reading Scripture and giving expression to it in our lives, is to live in truth, to seek your favor and grace with pure hearts.
Lord, your Holy Gospel gives direction to our lives, as we strive towards perfection and become worthy to receive your grace and blessings. We glimpse your actions that reveal your attributes and your will for our life and our behavior. Is is in seeking you by allowing your written Word to permeate our minds and hearts, that enables us to pray to you, the way Jesus taught us, applying ourselves sincerely to purifying and sanctifying our innermost beings.
Lord, we implicitly believe that when we pray, meditating on your Holy Word, we build a close relationship with you, which impacts our lives powerfully. It is truly essential to walk with you and have you beside us, for you are a faithful God and your Holy Word contains all your promises to your people. You establish your peace and your protection with all who desire your presence in truth, for you will never abandon us. Help us, gracious God, and inspire us to take shelter in your strength, your mercy and holiness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
