There are several prayers in Matthew Henry's Method for Prayer (available online here) that fit our category for this weekly post. I plan to use some of them (or portions of them) tonight and in weeks to come. Below is the first offering.
Evening before the Lord's Day (portion)
Now give us to remember that tomorrow is the sabbath of the Lord and that it is a high day, holy of the Lord and honourable, and give us grace so to sanctify ourselves, that tomorrow the Lord may do wonders among us; and to mind the work of our preparation, now the sabbath draws on....Now give us to rest from all our own works and to leave all our worldly cares at the bottom of the hill, while we go up to the mount to worship God and return again to them.
The tweet on the left was from Tuesday. Were you preparing for Sunday then?
