A Prayer for You Today (1)

December 5, 2022


Only Jesus says, ‘I have come for the weak. I have come for those who admit they are weak. I will save them not by what they do but through what I do.’


Over and over again (In the Christmas story) God says, ‘I will choose Nazareth, not Jerusalem. I will choose the girl nobody wants. I will choose the boy everybody has forgotten.’



Tim Keller – Hidden Christmas



Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my plea for grace. (Psalm 86:6)

A prayer for you today.


God and Father, I know that I often do Your work without Your power, and sin by my dead, heartless, blind service, my lack of inward light, love, delight, my mind, heart, and tongue moving without thy help.


I see sin in my heart in seeking the admiration of others; this is my vileness, to make people’s opinion my rule, whereas I should see what good I have done, and give You glory, consider what sin I have committed and mourn for that.


But You show Your power by my frailty, so that the more feeble I am, the more fit to be used, for You pitch a tent of grace in my weakness.


Help me to rejoice in my infirmities and give You praise, to acknowledge my deficiencies before others and not be discouraged by them, that they may see Your glory more clearly.

Teach me that I must act by a power supernatural, whereby I can attempt things above my strength, bear evils beyond my strength, act for Christ in all, and have His superior power to help me.


Let me learn of Paul whose presence was lowly, his weakness great, his utterance contemptible, yet You call him faithful and blessed.


Lord, let me lean on You as he did, and find my ministry there.



Confessional Prayer, from, The Valley of Vision



May God bless you in all things great and small.
