Evening Prayer

Proverbs 3:1-4

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will never forget the Lord’s teachings, but will keep them in your heart. Remember His commands, for they will prolong your life and bring you prosperity. I pray that you will never let love and faithfulness leave you. May you bind them around your neck and write them on the tablet of your heart, then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. I pray that you will always remember His teachings, and that His favor will go with you.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Bible Verse

~ Luke‬ ‭9:23-24‬ ‭[NASB1995‬‬]

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ–by grace you have been saved– and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
