Increase Our Faith

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
Renowned for mighty acts, thy fame
to future times extends;
from age to age thy glorious Name
successively descends.
 —Psalm 17:8
Suggested tune: Azmon (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!
—Luke 17:5
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
We wrestle and struggle with a little grace, a little faith, a little love, a little joy; and are contented if we can keep our heads above water, that we be not quite sunk and lost. How sweet would it be with us, if, upon a serious consideration from whence all these graces flow, we would apply ourselves to draw out farther degrees and heightenings of them, whereby he might dwell more plentifully in us, and we might always converse with him in his gracious train of attendants!
 —John Owen
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
I believe, Lord; help my unbelief...
 —Mark 9:24
 
YOUR OWN PRAYERS
Allow the above to help guide your own confession, praise, thanksgiving, and/or petition.

THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
