Today's Prayer

[For in the silence of our heart [inner core], when] we do not know how to pray as we should, the [Holy] Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
Stop worrying about anything. Instead, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving make your requests known to God. And the tranquillity which transcends all understanding will garrison your hearts and minds because of Christ Jesus. Finally, fellow believers, whatever is [doctrinally] true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is capacity for integrity love, whatever is commendable, whatever has virtue and is worthy of praise, concentrate on these things.

An Enduring Prayer for the Believer in Jesus Christ

Heavenly Father, in death we are reminded of the precious birthright of life and liberty you have endowed in your children. You have shown once again that those gifts must never be taken for granted. We pledge to those whom you have called home and ask you for patience to measure our lust for action, resolve to strengthen our obligation to lead, humility to wait for the leading of Your Spirit, wisdom to illuminate our pursuit of justice, virtue to abide in Your righteousness, and strength in the defense of liberty. We seek Your special blessing today for those who stand as sword and shield protecting the many from the tyranny of the few. Our enduring prayer is that you shall always guide our pursuits and our battles shall always be just. We pray this day Heavenly Father, the prayer the believer learned at another time of righteous struggle and noble cause, this enduring prayer for the believer in Jesus Christ. Not only that You, Father, will be by our side, but that we will continually remain by Your side. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ our Savior, our Redeemer and Reconciler, Who is King of kings and Lord of lords, Amen.
