Morning Prayer Guide - Thursday

Collect for Grace:
Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought us safely to this new day: Preserve us with your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all we do, direct us to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Collect for Purity:
Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hidden: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we might perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Read: Exodus 23:1-9 and Psalm 80:7-15

Today we read God’s commandments about social justice. God expects us to treat others fairly and to attack injustice. We are to be pure, not taking bribes or getting involved in falsehoods or perverting justice.

What are some ways you can apply this to your life and ministry? Ask God to help you see some ways to put this into practice. Write your own prayer.
