Our Prayer

Heavenly Father, we wholeheartedly thank you for your unending grace and mercy toward us poor sinners as we are. We desire to thank you again and again for your grace, grace, wonderful grace. Let us not forget that for a moment.

Father, we especially thank you for your dear Son—our Lord Jesus Christ: through whose propitiatory work on the cross you have eternally reconciled your peoples to yourself.

Father, we marvel at your perfect plan that was established from the foundation of the world. For graciously revealing to us, mortal sinful beings that we are, the wonder of your great Salvation.

Gracious Father, we always confess that we are a sinful and rebellious peoples and ask your forgiveness for Christ’s sake. That we too can rejoice with King David when he said: "Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one to whom the Lord will not reckon sin."

And now Father, we thank you and we praise you for all that we have or will have. And we ask Father, that you give us an accepting heart in every situation.

Father, we would also pray for all those who are suffering personal injury, sickness, or the loss of a loved one. That you would comfort them this day through all their pain and bring healing to body and mind.

Finally Father, we would pray for the leaders of our government. That you would guide them in all matters set before them. And Father, that you would grant them perfect wisdom in all their decisions.

Especially now Father, we pray for your protective hand over all the men and women who are serving in the armed forces around the world.

We pray all these things in the precious and holy name of Jesus the Christ: our risen Saviour and our Lord.

Amen and Amen
