August 1 – Evening


The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;

(Isaiah 61:1)


Dear God,

You have filled me with Your Spirit and have anointed me to bring good news to the poor, to bind up the brokenhearted, and to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners. I pray that You would continue to equip and empower me to fulfill this calling in my life. Help me to be sensitive to the needs of those around me and to be a bearer of Your love and hope to those who are hurting and in need of freedom and healing.

I ask for Your strength and guidance as I seek to bring comfort and restoration to those in need. Give me wisdom and compassion as I reach out to those who are suffering and help me to be a reflection of Your grace and mercy. Thank You for the privilege of being Your vessel of hope and love in this world. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
