A Prayer to Live Worthy Of The Gospel, A Prayer for March 12

This is short prayer of the day for March 12 is like a poem that asks God to help you to commune with Him and trust Him to serve well and turn from sin as you work with others for the good of the Gospel.  Read it a few times since there is a lot below the surface.


To Live Worthy of the Gospel,
A Prayer for March 12

O My blessed God and Father,
I bring worship for Your mercies,
And for blessings that You bestow.
You are watching as a shepherd;
With hand ready for quick rescue,
Though I often choose to transgress.
Give me power by Your Spirit
To live holy and be faithful.
Make me able to flee folly;
For to rebel is to betray
Him who suffered as my scapegoat.
Make me mindful You are watching
With love showing me my weakness
For Your purpose makes me complete.*
Be the freedom from my worries.
Help me subdue my bad desires.
Help me deny sin an entrance.
Let me refuse to be idle-
But be passion for Your service;
Make me willing to do kindness
And to offer acts of goodness.
Let me unite with those naming
Christ as Savor and True Master;
Help us labor for Your kingdom,
That the knowledge of Your Gospel
Will spread over this sad world.
For in Jesus is life eternal
Free to any who will receive.

"Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6.
