From sunrise to sunset, let the Lord’s name be praised! Psalm 113:3 CEB
Begin and End the Day with God
Ending the day with God is just as important as when you begin. Another day is ending, and maybe you’re you looking for a way to give your dreams to God, forgive the wrongs of the day, or ask the Spirit to speak to you in your sleep. If you’re unsure what to say as you face another night alone or a challenging tomorrow, you might like to pray along with this bedtime prayer and make Him the Lord of your nights!
Thanks for Your Faithfulness
Heavenly Father, my day is drawing to an end, and I’m ready to turn in. But before I do, I have to thank you for your faithfulness today. It’s always a good day, even when things may not go the way I plan, or when the world seems in chaos, because you are in control.
Thanks for Your Unseen Presence
Thanks for Your Love and Forgiveness

They did not see Him coming. Not Him. They saw a hope re-kindled, an end to their injustice, an easier path to follow.
They waved their palm offerings, laid down their finest clothes, but they saw only a temporary king, not a Suffering Servant. Read more
