Ephesians 4:2

Daylight Prayer – Oh God, would it be that we could follow these words of the apostle! No longer would there be so much strife and turmoil in our lives.

Romans 11:33

Daylight Prayer – Great God, Guide me today in your great wisdom. Help me to see as you do…the world around me. Show me how to love people who aren’t so lovable. Let me be a witness to you in such a way as to lift a spirit, calm a fear or light a path. I pray in Christ’s name. Amen.

Daylight Scripture – I sought the Lord and he answered me. He delivered me from all my fears.

Psalm 34:4

Daylight Prayer – Lord, It is amazing to me just how afraid people are these days. So many of the fears we have are baseless, particularly when we know that you are with us at all times. I am so grateful that you carry my fears and cares when I am at my wits end. Thank you for giving me the strength to seek you when I feel afraid. Freedom from fear is life! Amen.

Psalm 15: 1-3

Daylight Prayer – Lord, I suppose David could not imagine that you would come to dwell is the tent of your children. I am so grateful that you have. How else can I keep the commandments you have given unless you are there to guide and empower me? I praise you for the Spirit that you have anointed me with. Help me to strengthen that connection to you and your ways every day. Amen.

my morning rainbowDaylight Scripture – Just as a rainbow lights up a cloud on a rainy day, so its brightness shone all around. This was how the form of the Lord’s glory appeared. When I saw it, I fell on my face. I heard the sound of someone speaking.

Ezekiel 1:28

Daylight Prayer – Lord, thank you for the rainbows I see. They do indeed display your glory and fill me with the joy of the day. You bring me gladness in so many ways, and I do not always seek to give you thanks for it. Forgive me when I miss what you send my way, and help me to pay more attention to the gradual lighting of each new day. Amen.

Help me to acknowledge all the help you give me. Help me to see the majesty of your creation. Help me to gain understanding of your ways. In all things I praise you God, my creator, savior and Lord. Amen.

Daylight Scripture – The woman [at the well] said, “I know that the Messiah is coming, the one who is called the Christ. When he comes, he will teach everything to us.” Jesus said to her, “I Am—the one who speaks with you.”

John 4: 25-26

Daylight Prayer – Lord, I know that there are so many of us seeking you today. People who feel like outcasts, unworthy, and unable to know God like others seem to know you. Come to us as Jesus did to this blessed woman. Come to us in the everyday things we do. Speak to us. Tell us who you are. Convince us of your love. Convince us that no matter what we may have done, said, or acted like…that we are forgiven and saved by your grace. Amen.

Daylight Scripture – Happy are people who have pure hearts, because they will see God.

Matthew 5:8

Daylight Prayer – Lord, I want to thank you today for the pure hearts I have seen around me. Those whose faithfulness to you shine a great light in my life and cause me to want to be a better person. Were it not for those pure ones, what would the earth be like? It would be a place of darkness and hopelessness. I praise you for those who put your first in all things and for all that they bring to me and to the world. Amen.

Daylight Scripture –And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.

Mark 8: 34-35

Day Light Prayer – Lord, why do we fear giving our life up to you? For you take it forever to be with you, yet you let us live. Thank you for Jesus, for giving us a chance to gain heaven, to gain an abundant life, and to gain blessings yet unknown. Amen.

Daylight Scripture – Salvation belongs to the Lord; your blessing be on your people! Selah

Psalm 3:8

Daylight Prayer – Lord, I regret that some of us still do understand that we cannot save ourselves. Only you can. Only you can save us from our deeds that are so horrible. Only you can save us to the life of God in which we can live eternally. You are unlimited…but we, we are limited. We lack. We cannot forgive. Only you can. Thanks be to God for mercy, love and salvation. Amen.
