Prayer for Trunk or Treat – Day 4: And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Our gracious and forgiving Father, we come humbly and fearfully to You. Indeed, “If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?

Yet with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with You is plentiful redemption. (Ps 130:7) Thank You for redeeming us and now…

Give us this day our daily bread. “He who did not spare his Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:32).

Because You are able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, (Eph 3:20) we lift up Cornerstone and the Trunk-or-Treat into Your hands. Let us seek Your will together and walk…
