evening prayer (8/2/2017)


Father, we love You. Help us to entrust our lives to You, to submit ourselves to You fully. You have taught us what causes fights and quarrels among us – they come from our desires that battle within us. We desire but do not have, so we kill. We covet but we cannot get what we want, so we quarrel and fight. We do not have because we do not ask You. When we ask, we do not receive, because we ask with wrong motives, that we may spend what we get on our pleasures. Lord, You jealously long for the spirit You have caused to dwell in us. But you give us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Therefore, we submit ourselves to You. With your help, we resist the devil, and he will flee from us. When we come near to You, You come near to us. So we wash our hands and purify our hearts. We humble ourselves before You, Lord, knowing You will lift us up. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
James 4:1-10 New International Version
