Pastor Kim's Daily Prayer: Let Us Be Witnesses of Your Great Work and Take Responsibility of the Work Entrusted to Us
Almighty Lord, who restricts the devil’s power! Praise You, Lord, for seeking those who are lost in confusion and fear, and offering salvation to them. Praise Your name, Lord for saving our lives when we were destined to die with our sins. We give thanks to You for giving us an opportunity to look back on ourselves to see if our actions really show that we are true Christians. Please help us not to have false kindness and act like we are righteous. We confess that is is difficult to love others even when we are well aware that it is one of Your instructions that we should follow. Have mercy on us for not being able to sincerely love one other, for we are selfish. We believe that the only way to enjoy abundant grace is to meet Jesus Christ. Allow us to be deeply moved by Your grace as we meet Jesus and receive forgiveness of our sins. Allow us to be confident that we are His child. You healed Simon`s mother-in-law and saved all other sick people by laying Your hands on each one. You also preached of the Good News in the synagogues of Judea. We see the glory of Your power through the Gospel that You have showed to the world. We reflect on whether we have been living carelessly due to our own judgments and biases. Help us to focus our life's direction based only on You and Your words. Lord who has completed salvation through Your mercy and forgiveness! Praise You, Lord for looking after Your people and accomplishing Your promise of salvation in Your time. Sometimes, Your plans may seem unexpected and unpredictable. But please help us to follow You by trusting You. Let us be a strong soldier and win over the spiritual wars that we are placed in. Help us to be a strong solier by the grace of the Jesus Christ. Help us to become stronger whenever we face difficult moments. Allow us to have strong faith towards Your words at all times.
