Prayer for Thursday

Your name, O Lord, is worthy of praise.
You are holy and righteous,
full of grace and wisdom.
Your name is above every name
on earth and in heaven.

I pray, Lord God,
that you will look upon me
in mercy and kindness,
that you will forgive me of my sins
and forgive any who may have sinned against me.

Bless them, O Lord,
show them kindness and favor,
heal their wounds,
bind up all that is broken in them,
soothe and smooth every scar—

and in me as well, I pray.

Grant me grace, my Savior,
to face every challenge
and wisdom for every situation.
May good come from the work of my hands
and others be blessed by the labor of my life.

Do not let me grow bitter
against those who oppose me
nor take for granted those who do not.

Help me, O Lord, to delight
in returning good for evil
and blessing for cursing,
that I may be like you,
that you may be delighted in me.

To you be power, glory and honor,

H. Arnett
