Prayer from Genesis 1-3

creation

Father,

Create me anew each day. Work within me in such a way that all will be ‘good’ in your eyes. Help me to hear and obey your voice. Give me discernment to know when I hear the voice of the Serpent who lies. Cover me with grace when I sin.

I acknowledge that I am from dust and to dust I will return. My trust is in You to bless the work of my days in this life, and to deliver me when this body returns to dust.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

I am reading through the NRSV Daily Bible this year. In my prayer journal I often use the Scriptures I’m reading to write prayers. I may share those from time to time here, though probably not every day. Thanks for reading! JD
