A Sunday Morning Prayer

Dear Lord,

We come before You this morning with grateful hearts. We lift up our praise and adoration to You. We thank You for this new day and for the opportunity to gather together in Your holy presence.

We confess our sins and ask for Your forgiveness, Lord Jesus. We also ask that You would give us strength and wisdom to live according to Your will.

We lift up our leaders, our families, and our friends. We ask that You would give them Your guidance and protection. Lord, we also pray for those who are suffering, for the sick, for the lonely, and for the lost. We ask that You would comfort them and give them hope.

We pray for Your Church, Lord God, that it would be a light to the world, shining Your love and truth to all. We pray that Your kingdom would come and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Thank You for Your love, Your grace, and Your mercy. We trust in You and give You all the glory. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
