A Prayer for You Today (1)

February 5, 2024

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him so that by the power of the Holy Spirit, you may overflow in hope.

Romans 15:13


Much grace was upon them all.

Act 4:33

Dear friends.


Every Christian has to be poor in spirit. To be poor in spirit is to know we have a debt before God. We are a Sinner. We are not well off and cannot possibly make good on that debt.


Therefore, outside of Christ, we are broke. We are spiritually bankrupt, and it is only by the infinite costly grace of God, who came into this world in the person of His Son Jesus and died on the cross for our sins, that we are only forgiven and justified because of God's infinite grace at infinite cost to Himself.


Therefore, Christians live by the generosity of God.




A prayer for you today.



Almighty, everlasting God, and Father, we acknowledge and confess that we were conceived and born in sin and, therefore, inclined to all evil and slow to all good, and we are sorry for this. We ask for Your grace and help. Please, have mercy upon us, most gracious and merciful God and Father, through Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.


Grant us more grace and increase Your Holy Spirit so that we may know our sins; from the depth of our hearts, grieve them and know we are forgiven of them.


Fill us with Your grace that we might rightly know and share with others our possessions, Your love and mercy, and Jesus Christ, Your Son, who is our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. Amen.


Taken and slightly abridged from the prayers of Ambrose (339 – 397 A.D.) and Henry Thornton (1760-1815)



May God’s grace abound in your lives this week.
