Begin with praising the name of the Lord. God instructs Him with thanksgiving and praise. Click the hyperlink at the end of this page for a list of God’s names to worship.
Today’s prayer is based on the Prophet David’s prayer from Psalm 25.
“For the honor of your name, O Lord, forgive my many, many sins. Who are those who fear the Lord? He will show them the path they should choose. They will live in prosperity, and their children will inherit the land. The Lord is a friend to those who fear Him. He teaches them His covenant. My eyes are always on the Lord, for He rescues me from the traps of my enemies. Protect me! Rescue my life from them! Do not let me be disgraced, for in you I take refuge.” Psalm 25:11-15, 20, NLT
