Sunday, Week 12

And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.
— Luke 11:4 (BSB)

Heaven is full of answers to prayers for which no one ever bothered to ask.
— Billy Graham

Lord, You have been gracious to us. You have blessed us. This evening we mingle our voices in praise to You for Your goodness. Your love is everlasting. Your grace is never-failing. Your faithfulness is eternal. You never weary in blessing us.

We thank You for all the privileges of this holy day. Sanctify to us, the worship in which we have engaged, at home, and with Your people in the sanctuary. May our meditation on Your word enrich us and build up in us the beautiful things of Your grace. May the prayers we have offered, be answered in Your loving fullness. May the glimpses of Your love and glory we have had today, be inspirations in our souls in the days to come, making us long for the things that are heavenly. May the songs of the day, sing in our hearts all the week.

May we have grace to follow the instructions we have received from Your word, so that our lives may be holier. Help us to put away the faults which have been disclosed in us as we have looked into Your word and have thought seriously of ourselves. Help us to put on the beautiful things which have been pointed out to us. So may Sunday be blessed to us, and may its lessons be wrought out in our lives.

May Your Spirit follow all the work of Your church this day, blessing all the preaching and teaching of Your word, and all efforts put forth by missionaries everywhere to make known the name of Jesus Christ. May Your kingdom come. May its power in men's hearts and lives, become more and more complete. Grant us now a blessing as we go to our beds for the night. Spread over us Your shelter of love. And may grace, mercy, and peace be upon us forever. Amen.
