Prayers and Praises

Let Us Pray:
Lord, help me today to realize all that You have done in my life. You are faithful even when I am faithless. You love me even when I am unlovable. Your forgiveness covers my sin and frees me from its penalty. I praise You for your love and faithfulness to me. Your presence in my life changes everything, empowering me to live each moment of every day, content in knowing You are in control. As I face today, Lord, remind me that no matter what happens, I can trust in, and call on, You!
