Friday 7th August - Prayer for the day
Lord our God,
we thank you for establishing us on the firm foundation of your Word and your promise,
your promise that expresses the great longing
and hope in so many people's hearts.
For they do not want their lives to remain base and
petty but want to look toward something higher,
rejoicing that the promise can be fulfilled for them.
So today we too stand ready
for the coming time you are bringing,
and we exult in our expectation of the future.
We rejoice in the expectation of the time when you will
give your Spirit to us and to all those who answer your
call and become your helpers. Amen.
