A Lenten Prayer for the Day
Scripture: To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. Psalm 25:1
Holy God, my worries are not new to you
You know them quite well –
even as you know every aspect of my being
the deep places too tender to name -
You know them.
Help me not to fret but to trust –
to receive your goodness.
This day is my gift; a sign of your love
tomorrow and all of my tomorrows
are held in your hands
no one can pluck them out or take away what have given
help me to guard them as the treasures they are.
I will lift up my head
for you alone are my strength
you alone are my shield; my protection
you alone are my guide leading me in the right way
you are my all and all.
And I will praise you, yes, I will praise you
and sing songs of praise
I will shout and be glad
I will declare your glory to all I meet
Thanks be to you Almighty God.
Prayer: Thanks be to You!
