I've heard people say their most common prayer is short: "Help."
I get that, but I am wondering if there are prayers with perhaps a bit more substance that you pray, say, every day and find helpful?
I pray the Apostles' Creed and the Lord's Prayer almost every day, for example. Here's another prayer that I find myself praying several times a week …
"Eternal and loving Father, so draw my heart, so guide my mind, so fill my imagination, and so control my will … that I may be wholly yours, utterly dedicated to you. And then use me, I pray, as you will, and always to your glory and the welfare of your people. Through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen."
I'd like to hear any such prayers that you find helpful.

Most mornings I pray Psalm 27:1 "The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my, life, of whom shall I be afraid?" I also usually pray the Lord's Prayer and Psalm 23 before I'm out of the shower.
I'm big on the Lord's prayer. Although lately, a wise old sage told me about the serenity prayer. I've been praying that some here and now…I find it very helpful here in Mexico.
Have you noticed that the Apostles' Creed says nothing about WHY Jesus came? No mention of propitiation, substitution, reconciliation, or salvation. Does that not seem a glaring omission? Was it intentional? I wonder why.
