Be My Fortress Prayer
God, my Fortress, unlike people, whom You have given the Sabbath day, the enemy does not rest. It strikes at every opportunity because it knows I am weak. Yet, You are strong, Lord. Embrace me today.

Mercifully hear me, Lord. Amen.
Let Me Taste and See Prayer
Heavenly Father, those who have tasted Your goodness understand its sweetness. I am learning that we must, again and again, return to taste and see that You are good.

Lord, hear this prayer and let my cries rise to You. Amen.
A Prayer of Daily Thanks
Jesus, my Savior, Your gifts are superabundant. They are so automatic that we often forget to thank You for the many little mercies You show us each day.

Resurrect This Day Prayer
Jehovah Rapha, my Healer, it has not been a good start to the day. Things seem like they are falling apart, and I don’t know what to do.

Amen.
A Prayer for a Better Attitude Today
O God of Loving Devotion, recent events have left me mad and embittered. I am not fun to be around, and I am sure that my bad day is also ruining someone else’s. Reform my attitude today. Help me to see that even when things seem bad, Your goodness still shines through. Give me a heart of gratitude and mold my thoughts to be kind, positive and uplifting this very day. Amen.
Lord, my Light in the Darkness, we are often so blind that we cannot get through our day without stumbling. We are truly like the blind leading the blind, and I feel like I am certainly bound to fall into a pit at some point today. Send Your Spirit to guide me so that I can avoid today’s pitfalls. Keep me out of the Devil’s reach and make my path clear. Lord, graciously turn Your holy ear towards me. Amen.
A Prayer to be Content Today
God of All Comfort, the last several days, I have struggled with coveting. It is so hard for me to be content.

Make it a better day, where I do not want and rejoice in what I already have. Amen.
