Sunday Morning Prayer

Heavenly Father,

We come before You this morning with hearts filled with gratitude and praise. We thank You for Your unending grace and mercy, and for the gift of salvation through Your Son, Jesus Christ.

We humbly ask that You guide and lead us in Your ways, that we may honor You and glorify Your name. We pray for wisdom and discernment, that we may make decisions that please You and align with Your will.

We also lift up those in our community who are in need of Your comfort and healing. We pray for the sick, the hurting, the lonely, and the lost. We ask that You bring them hope and peace, and that they may know Your love and presence in their lives.

We also ask for Your protection and guidance for our leaders, both in our church and in our country. We pray that they seek Your wisdom and lead with integrity and justice.

Lastly, we ask that You help us to be a light to those around us, that we may share the love and truth of the gospel with those who do not yet know You.

We pray all these things in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
