Gracious Heavenly Father, I come in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ to thank You for the promise in Hebrews 4:16. “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy [I don’t get what I deserve] and find grace [I get what I don’t deserve] to help in time of need.” It is a blessing that You encourage me to come to the throne of grace just as I am, and not only if I am worthy or because of any right actions I may take. It is completely because of my born-again relationship with Your Son, Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for my sins.
Thank you that because of Your grace, there is nothing I have done or can do in the future that will affect Your wonderful love for me. In fact, Your love is beyond measure. Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, said in Romans 8:38-39 “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.“
Remind me often to share about the many things of grace You have given me. You want me to extend Your grace to others even If I think they do not deserve it. Thank you for Your many verses of Scripture in Your Word, the Bible, that tell about the functioning of Your grace. This teaching gives me enabling power to do and be what You want me to be, as well as forgiveness and the renewal of my mind. The greatest part of Your gift of grace is that it is always enough, even when at times it does not seem like it. As You told Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:9a about his problem, “‘My grace is sufficient for you.’” In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
P.S. These prayers will only work if you have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. If you need help understanding God’s plan of salvation for you (the way to heaven), go to this page on our site: https://timewithourcreator.com/2016/06/02/salvation/
