Another Christian brother in the theres.life instance of Mastodon shares prayers fairly frequently. They are in Portuguese so I translate them (DeepL is THE BEST translator I’ve ever used!) into English. He has given me permission to share here. While I don’t like praying the prayers that others write (other than praying the Scriptures of course), this brother’s prayers are wonderful jumping off points for me to talk to the Father about what I’m reading, sort of embellishing them, or “making them my own”. If you haven’t tried this, today’s prayer is an excellent one on which to start!
Lord God, our Father, whose name is worthy of all reverence and respect:
- May your kingdom take over my life and possess many hearts for eternal salvation.
- Give wisdom to your people so that we may live to please the Lord in all things.
- Let us not speak or do anything without the guidance of the Holy Scriptures.
- May our teaching be faithful to your Word, always within the truth, and communicated with love and compassion.
- May the moment of eating the Lord’s Supper together on the Lord’s Day be the highlight of our week.
- May Jesus’ death be our life, and may his life be our example.
- For him we pray, Amen.
