Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever.

Amen.

Prayer for the Morning

Oh God the King eternal, who divides the day from the darkness, and has turned the shadow of death into the light of morning; I pray that this day you will incline my heart to keep your commandments, driving temptation from my mind. Guide my feet into the way of peace; that having done your will with cheerfulness while it was day, I may, when the night comes, rejoice in giving you thanks for a day lived in your presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Prayer of Repentance

O Lord our God, good and merciful, I acknowledge all my sins which I have committed every day of my life, in thought, word and deed; in body and soul alike. I am deeply sorry that I have ever offended you, and I sincerely repent; with true sorrow I humbly pray to you, O Lord: that in your unfathomable mercy, you will forgive me all my past transgressions and absolve me from them. I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, to change my way of life and to sin no more; that I may walk in the way of the righteous, offering praise and glory to the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Amen.

Community of Prayer

The Lord bless us and keep us. The Lord make his face to shine upon us, and be gracious unto us. The Lord lift up his countenance upon us, and give us peace, this day and evermore.

Amen.

Think of the day ahead in terms of God with you, and visualize health, strength, guidance, purity, calm confidence, and victory as the gifts of His presence.



Psalm 116

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death


I love the Lord, for He hears my voice and my prayers.
Because He has turned His ear to me, I will call upon Him as long as I live.

The ropes of death ensnared me, and the terrors of death came upon me;
I found distress and sorrow.
Then I called upon the name of the Lord: "O Lord, I beseech you, save my life!"

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; our God is full of compassion.
He preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me.

Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt graciously with you.
You have rescued my soul from death,
My eyes from tears,
My feet from stumbling.
I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.
It was You who I turned to, when I cried out, "I am greatly afflicted."
And in the time of my crisis, cried out "All men are liars."

What can I give to repay all His benefits toward me?
I will lift up the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the Lord.
I will honor my vows to the Lord; and may it be in the presence of all His people.

The death of His godly ones is momentous in the sight of the Lord.
For surely, oh Lord, I am Your servant,
I am Your servant, the child of Your handmaid,
You have untied my bonds.
I will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to You,
And I will call upon the name of the Lord.

I will honor my vows to the Lord; and may it be in the presence of all His people,
In the courtyard of the Lord's house,
In the midst of you, O Jerusalem.
Praise the Lord!

  • Daily Devotion Comments • Today's Music

    Thank you Mason for today's song, "You Say" by Lauren Daigle. I need to hear this everyday too. I am so blessed by this site, you and your staff.

    May God continue to bless you and your ministry.



  • Daily Devotion Comments • Re: Dali/David

    I think it had to do with dependence, David had always trusted God for his Kingship, he could have killed King Saul in the cave, but did not because he trusted God to make him King, so by taking a census he was checking his resources, in effect trusting his own logic and judgement on what to do next, .



  • Daily Devotion Comments • Re: Cursing

    I was talking to a fellow sister and she shared with me that hearing cursing even mild cursing upset her and caused her to stumble. At first I thought it was a little odd because we often hear it all the time. Then I asked her is she ever heard me curse and she pointed out that she had - I discovered I often curse to emphasize a point and did not even realize it.
    I share your struggle with this. But listen to the first verse of Psalm 39:
    "I said, 'I will guard my ways,
    that I may not sin with my tongue;" - Mason

  • Daily Devotion Comments • god's will

    The daily inspiration for Feb 22 on God's will is supremely helpful to determining what God's will is in the problems and solutions that come our way. Another "Thank you Jenny". Great insight.



  • Daily Devotion Comments • Loving Me

    Wonderful Words Jenny,I'm really hard on Me,without a doubt it is nowhere near the peace I should have from the words of Scripture but it gives me that thought of a Buffer zone and some added space to fail,the BIGGEST part for me everyday is a feeling of guilt before My Lord Jesus,maybe I need to STOP that somewhat...



  • Daily Devotion Comments • Re: Adds

    I never see ad's on here! And if you are it is based on your own algorithm, your search engine thinks it knows what you want to see.. I emphasize THINKS.. Lol

    Have a blessed day and God Bless...



  • Daily Devotion Comments • Feb 19, 24 Daily Inspiration

    May God bless you Mr. Barge. Thank you for your insight both on todays scripture, but especially for todays Daily Inspiration (and memory verse.) I far too often find myself "leaning on my own, very bent, understanding. Then I fall. May God guide us all with His infinite love and understanding.



  • Daily Devotion Comments • Dali/David

    Isaiah 42:15 In-Context is happening now.

    Why was The LORD so angry with David for taking the census?



  • Daily Devotion Comments • Re: Adds

    Good morning,
    I want to ask why TEMU is part of your adds? TEMU is not a company that is trust worthy or of The US.
    I don't determine what ads you see. They are based on your personal browsing history.
