Almighty God, your Son Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the cross so that He might draw the whole world to Himself. We thank You for this and for another day to praise and worship Him ……
Grant that we, who glory in this death for our salvation, may also glory in His call to take up our cross and follow Him. I promise, O God, insofar as I am able, this day I will be as obedient a follower of Jesus as He was to you my God ….
As I come into this new day, I ask Redeeming God, that you would create within me a clean heart, renew within me a right spirit, and make me a woman of clean lips. May all I do and all I say represent you faithfully. May I live each moment today aware of Your steadfast love and faithfulness ….
Grant us this day that we who remain faithful during the persecution and trials we are persevering for righteousness’ sake may find rest for our weary souls and peace for troubled minds and hearts ….
May Jesus Christ –who for our sake was obedient even unto death, keep us and strengthen us as we go through this day. It is in His blessed name by which I pray, Amen ….
