Prayer for Faithful Lives

Gracious God, move us to live every day as if it were to be our last, for we do not know if it might be. Cause us to live as if we know it is our last hour. O grant that we may not die with any guilt on our consciences or any known unrepented sin, but that we may be found in Christ, who is our only Savior and Redeemer.

Prayer to Grow in Faith

Almighty and eternal God, by your Holy Spirit you have revealed to us the gospel of your Son, Christ Jesus. Awaken our hearts that we may sincerely receive your Word and not make light of it, or hear it without fruit as did your people long ago.

Instead lead us to fear you and daily grow in faith in your mercy and finally through your Son Christ Jesus, obtain eternal salvation; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one true God, now and forever.
