December 18 – Evening


This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

(Matthew 6:9)


Dear God,

You are our heavenly Father, the one who is holy and deserving of all praise and worship. Your kingdom is what we long for here on earth, a place of righteousness and peace where Your will is done. Help us to live our lives in accordance with Your teachings, seeking first Your kingdom and Your righteousness in all that we do. Give us the strength and courage to trust in Your plans and to surrender our own desires to Your will.

We ask for Your grace and mercy as we strive to follow Your example and live a life that glorifies You. Forgive us when we fall short, and guide us in the path of righteousness. May Your kingdom come in our hearts and in the world around us, as we seek to love and serve others just as You have loved and served us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
