Awaken within us, O Lord, a greater passion for Your Glory. Amen.
Snatches from Scotty Smith, Everyday Prayers
Sometimes the good news seems just too good to be true. So I pray for grasping powers today––power to grasp the multidimensional love that is ours in you,
Heavenly Father, I awake today a grateful man, and I want to live that way all day long.
Please, Father, open the eyes of my heart wider to behold the glory to be revealed in us and in creation. Heal me of spiritual myopia. Get the mornings got out of my eyes. Do gospel laser surgery so that I can behold these things more clearly, and live in love accordingly.
Blessed Lord, we lift up to You every single military person for Your protective care and safety. We ask You to protect their families and keep them connected by every type of media, including plain old snail mail.
Lord, sometimes we civilians and church people get so busy with our private lives that we simply forget about these men and women who have dedicated their lives to protect our nation. Watch over them in special ways. Meet all of their needs.
When we think of the millennials in the military, Lord God, we ask You for special grace to keep them brave and courageous and able to deal with the daily challenges that they must encounter. If they are Christians already, Praise the Lord! For the military millennials who do not know Christ as their Savior and Lord, save them, O Lord, we pray, for the Glory of Your Holy Name.
Trusting You to have Your way in their lives, we commit them to You in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

Praise the Lord for answered prayers.
How can we know God answers prayer?
There is a pattern seen in Scripture that emerges when we study the answered prayers of certain people. The pattern reveals specific characteristics about the One who hears our prayers. This pattern of seven answered prayers applies to our prayers!
Let’s see what the pattern is:
So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bore children. (Genesis 20:17)
Abraham surely was in great distress and remorse because (for a second time), he did not trust in Yahuwah’s [the LORD’s] protection. Now, as he stood before the king of Gerar, Abraham was reprimanded for his deception. Abraham was in a dilemma that most likely humbled him, and greatly frightened him. The king of Gerar could destroy Abraham for his deception. Abraham must have begun his prayer to Yahuwah with much anguish.
