Heavenly Father, I know it is simple…your work…believing in Jesus. Yet, some days I get confused and think that my own good deeds will please you and save me. Help me everyday remember, that I only please you as I believe in your son, Jesus.  Amen.

The words of the Lord are as pure as seven-times refined silver from an earthen furnace.

Psalm 12:6

DayLight Prayer –

God, today I pray for the wisdom to speak words that are pure, perfectly refined and pleasing to you. Stop me from saying untrue, unkind, unloving comments.

Blessed are those who mourn, because they will be given comfort.

Matthew 5:4

DayLight Prayer –

Heavenly Father, So many things have broken my heart, and I’ve carried the face of mourning. Yet your words are true. In the deepest darkness of loss, heartbreak and despair, you keep me company; you stand vigil over me even when I am so blinded by tears that I can’t even comprehend your presence. Your comfort is my unseen shield.  Amen.

DayLight Scripture –

When it was noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. Then Jesus cried out, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthanie? which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

Mark 15: 33-34

DayLight Prayer –

Lord, I’ve felt this way before, and I know many others who have as well, but…I don’t believe you forsook Jesus…though I think he thought you did. Our human frailty overcomes our minds sometimes, and I believe we just can’t comprehend your presence with us.  But thanks be to you, that you do not forsake us! Amen.
