Jacob’s Prayer

Jacob_Wrestling_with_Angel_God of my father Abraham, God of my father Isaac, God who told me, ‘Go back to your parents’ homeland and I’ll treat you well.’ I don’t deserve all the love and loyalty you’ve shown me. When I left here and crossed the Jordan I only had the clothes on my back, and now look at me—two camps! Save me, please, from the violence of my brother, my angry brother! I’m afraid he’ll come and attack us all, me, the mothers and the children. You yourself said, ‘I will treat you well; I’ll make your descendants like the sands of the sea,  far too many to count.’”

Prayer For Mercy

dominionGod of our fathers, LORD of all creation. You spoke everything into being by the power of Your word. You created us to have dominion over all the earth but we sinned and fell short of our intended purpose. Father, we pray for mercy for without it we cannot survive in a fallen world. We depend upon Your mercies daily, they are as vital as the sun itself. We ask for wisdom rather than wealth. Without wisdom we cannot know Your will; if we don’t know Your will, we cannot find your way. Wisdom is more precious than gold. Wisdom leads to right choices and right choices lead to the abundant life that Jesus talked about in John 10. Wealth without wisdom will lead to pride and pride will lead to a fall. Deliver us from pride and lead us in the right paths for the glory and honor of Christ our LORD and Savior.

Ronald Knox Psalm 123

Praying WomanUnto Thee O LORD I lift my eyes, unto Thee, who dwells in the heavens. As the eyes of the servant are fixed on his master, as the eyes of the maiden is fixed on the hand of her mistress, so my eyes are fixed upon Thee O LORD my God to show mercy to Thy servants. Have mercy upon us O God for we have had our fill of the world’s contempt and ridicule for Your Son and our Savior. Our hearts are sick of the scorn that the rich and famous heap upon our LORD and are weary of the mockery of the proud. We long to dwell in Your house forever.
