Daily Prayer & Reading for July 18
July 18, 2018
Heavenly Father, so many things can distract me from what truly matters. Guide me as I strive to make healthier decisions in my life. May I turn away from addictions and find comfort and strength in You. May I learn to live with less so that I can give more back to people in need. Help me to weigh each decision I make so that everything I do might bring me closer to You. Amen.
At that time Jesus exclaimed:
“I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows the Son except the Father,
and no one knows the Father except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”
