the Week of Proper 4 / Ordinary 9
Daily Light on the Daily Path
Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.
Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at
midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; for a
friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing
to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say,
Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with
me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. I say unto you, Though
he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet
because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as
he needeth. Praying always with all prayer and supplication in
the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and
supplication for all saints.
I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. As a prince
hast thou power with God and with men. Continue in prayer, and
watch in the same with thanksgiving.
Jesus went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all
night in prayer to God.
Luke 1:1 Luke 11:5-8 Ephesians 6:18 Genesis 32:26-28 Colossians 4:2 Luke 6:12
Forgive all my sins.
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though
your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though
they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. I, even I,
am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake,
and will not remember thy sins.
The Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins. In whom
we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins,
according to the riches of his grace. Not by works of
righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he
saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the
Holy Ghost; which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ
our Saviour. Having forgiven you all trespasses; blotting out
the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was
contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his
Bless the LORD, O my soul, who forgiveth all thine
