A Prayer for Strengthened Faith by Martin Luther

Special thanks to the Internet Monk.

Almighty God, through the death of your Son you have destroyed sin and death.
Through his resurrection you have restored innocence and eternal life.
We who are delivered from the power of the devil may live in your kingdom.
Give us grace that we may believe this with our whole heart. Enable us, always,
to steadfastly praise and thank you in this faith, through your Son Jesus Christ, our Lord.

A Prayer for Lasting Peace by Martin Luther

Special thanks to the Internet Monk.

Dear God,
give us peaceful hearts and a right courage
in the confusion and strife against the devil.
And so may we not only endure and finally triumph,
but also have peace in the midst of the struggle.
May we praise and thank you and not complain
or become impatient against your divine will.
Let peace win the victory in our hearts,
that we may never through impatience initiate anything
against you, our God, or our neighbors.
May we remain quiet and peaceable toward God and toward other people,
both inwardly and outwardly, until the final and eternal peace shall come.

Prayer To Be Kept in God’s Love In Difficult Times

Lord, how we wonder at Your love for us, in that while we were yet sinners
You sent the Lord Jesus Christ to die for our sins –
so that in Him we might become Your children
and be made the righteous of God, in Him.

Father it staggers the thoughts of our hearts to realise,
that while we were cold and rebellious towards You and and at enmity with God..
that You purposed the glorious plan of redemption in Your heart of love..
that guilty sinners could be declared righteous, through believing on the Lord Jesus Christ –
Who died to pay the price for our sins.. with His own life-blood.

Thank You that in Your grace and mercy, Your strong arm of love reached down to me,
long before my rebellious heart of stone, turned towards You for healing.

Lord my chief complaint is that my love for You is faint and fragile –
a love which seems to be so far removed from the depth of love I desire to have for You.
Help me I pray to develop a godly love for You,
that is commensurate with the love that You deserve from a sinner such as I –
Whom You lifted from the cesspit of sin and chose to save by grace through faith.

Thank You for Your unchanging and unconditional love towards me –
and help me more and more to come to a new and deeper understanding
of What the Love of God towards me truly means. This I ask in the name of Jesus my Saviour,



May God the Father
prepare your journey,
Jesus the Son
guide your footsteps,
The Spirit of Life
strengthen your body,
The Three in One
watch over you,
on every road
that you may follow.
