Start your Tuesday morning in prayer as you begin to seek God's presence and direction for the day head. Prayer provides communication and communion with God. Through daily prayer, we have the opportunity to converse with the Creator of the universe.
Matthew 6:26 shares how His eye is on the delicate sparrow, and on each of us. God cares about every aspect of our lives, and through prayer, we can come to know His love, care, and guidance better.
Speak this heartfelt Tuesday morning prayer to ask for God's peace and guidance through the day.
Holy Spirit, we thank You for this Tuesday. Lord, we know that despite all of the stresses and chaos of the world, You indeed see us and care for us.
Lord, we ask today for more of Your Holy Spirit in our lives. Lord, it can be easy for us to become consumed with the fears that surround us in life, but we know that just as Your eye is indeed on the sparrow, so also do You care for and see us.
Lord, thank You for the truth given through Your holy word. Lord, today we present at Your holy throne all of our cares, worries, and fears. We thank You in advance that You will not only provide peace from these stressors, but that indeed You are working all things out for good.
Teach us today to become more reliant on You. Bring us into a greater discernment of how You operate, so that we may come into a deeper understanding that all we see with natural eyes is not all that is. Today we ask for eyes to see Your hand in all matters, and hearts open to Your work.
In Jesus’s name, Amen.
Daily prayer brings us into a deeper relationship with God.
Through prayer, we have the opportunity to not only speak but also hear the Father. The Father speaks often through His word, a gentle whisper (1 Kings 19:12), or through His Spirit at work within us.
Allowing God to speak to our hearts will not only refine them but will also grow us in our journey. We can rest assured that no matter what we are facing, He is right there with us. His ways are higher than our ways, and His thoughts higher than our thoughts.
Take some time today to be still in the Lord and allow Him to speak to you through His word, through your circumstances, or through His gentle Spirit. Resting in the promise of His love will not only provide tranquility, but assurance of the truth that we are never forgotten by the Almighty.
