Gracious Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, thank you for the privilege I have as a believer to come to the throne of grace. It is such a great blessing to receive Your grace, which is the love and mercy given by You. If I obey You, You will not hold anything back that will help me to live for You. Hebrews 4:16Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Forgive me for the times when I have chosen to live in the world of performance where I try to look to myself to be good enough to manage situations. Sometimes I accept that I am saved by grace, but then act as if works are what will sustain my new life in Christ.

Direct me to continually seek ​​to deepen my relationship with You rather than just seeking Your blessings. Teach me to understand and recognize my limitations and that through my weaknesses, You develop my Christian character. My weaknesses are also the way You develop in me a sense of deep worship and praise. Psalm 34:1-2aI will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the LORD.

Thank you that when I am weak, if I ask, You will fill me with Your power that is stronger than any I could ever have on my own. It is Your power that makes me effective for You.

Show me how to find peace and comfort, as stated in 2 Corinthians 12:9a where Jesus said, “my grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.

It is in Your holy Name that I accept Your grace, Amen.

Heavenly Father, thank you for Your grace that gives salvation to all who respond to Your gift of Jesus dying on the cross, and His resurrection. I am reminded in Ephesians 2:8For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.

It gives me joy to know that You will demonstrate Your power toward me in my times of weakness, and that You are able to constantly bring me peace by Your mercy and grace as You tell me in Hebrews 4:16. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Since Jesus came  to highlight Your mercy, love, and forgiveness, direct me to know Him better so that I can increase my understanding of Your will for my life.

Show me how to trust You every day for all of my needs and all of my Godly desires. “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.2 Corinthians 12:9

May my walk with You be such that I clearly recognize my need to confess my absolute helplessness to You, so that I may receive from You the fulfillment of the promise in 1 Peter 5:10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.” Jesus, I want to thank You for Your unconditional love for me.

I bring this prayer in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
