Then I turned to the Lord God and prayed and asked him for help. To show my sadness, I fasted, put on rough cloth, and sat in ashes. I prayed to the Lord my God and told him about all of our sins. I said, "Lord, you are a great God who causes fear and wonder. You keep your agreement of love with all who love you and obey your commands."
— Daniel 9:3-4 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, right now I confess my sins: ... Forgive me. Help me to turn from evil and live for You. I am willing to fast and pray to show You how committed I am to Your ways. Grant me a fresh desire to know Your word and follow Your instructions. As I think about how I have lived, Lord, I am truly sad and have many regrets about all the choices I have made. Forgive me. Cleanse me. And lead me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
