People surround me with hateful words and attack me without cause; in return for my love, they accuse me, but I continue to pray.

Psalm 109: 3-4

DayLight Prayer –

Dear Lord, Sometimes I wonder what you think of the attacks that come to those who are trying to follow you; who are attempting to live the righteous life you desire amid this world of skepticism, apathy and lust. Do you simply wait for our prayers of deliverance?  Then…let us pray!  Amen.

DayLight Prayer –

Lord, I see it now–if I don’t judge, I won’t condemn. If I don’t condemn, then what will need to be forgiven? Help me today to keep my feelings off of my sleeve and in check. Prevent me from making judgments that lead to condemnation and unforgiveness. Amen.

Proverbs 10:9

DayLight Prayer –

Lord, How is it that we forget that you know everything about us. It is certain then that our personal and secret “trash bags” are going to be opened up one day and all our mess will be laid out for review. God help me to need only the smallest Hefty bags, and not the bit black lawn bags! Keep me from making such big messes that my trash will need to be raked and hauled by trucks! Amen.
