    Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just,
    whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious,
    if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise,
    let me think about these things.
    What I have learned and received, let me do;
    and the God of peace be with us all.

    A verse in the New Testament, forgot which book it is in, we were just talking about this the other day. That would be a nice prayer too.
    I like the 23rd Psalm. And The Lord's Prayer.
    I did enjoy reading all the ones above too.

    O good shepherd, seek me out, and bring me home to thy fold again.
    Deal favourably with me according to thy good pleasure,
    till I may dwell in thy house all the days of my life,
    and praise thee for ever and ever with them that are there.
    (Jerome, c 342 - 420)

    A Beautiful Good Friday Prayer

    Lord,

    I thank you that you have not forsaken me. You knit me together in my Mother’s womb, you intimately know my thoughts, and you still love me. From the creation of the world, you set in motion a rescue plan so that I would not have to spend an eternity away from you. You stepped down from heaven so that the curse of sin and death would come untrue. Through your great sacrifice, you made a way for fallen mankind to have hope and a future.

    Thank you, God, for sending the gift of your Son to earth to bear the weight of my sin and shame. I thank you for setting me free from my sin and for inviting me to be a part of your heavenly family. I am humbled by your amazing grace, by the blood you shed, and by your love that is so much greater than I would be able to fully comprehend.

    Give me the strength to live with the obedience, just as you were obedient, even to death, to your Father. Help me to live with the humility that you showed as you walked this earth dying a criminal’s death even as the Son of God. Lord, empower me to show your love to those around me, just as you so graciously showed your love for us through your incarnation, death, and resurrection. May those who have yet to accept your message of hope and salvation come to have a personal relationship with you.

    Amen.
