A Prayer for You Today (1)

April 1, 2024


Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst.

But for that very reason, I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus, might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.

1 Timothy 1:15-16

Dear friends,


Knowing we could never do enough to change our predicament, the mercy of Christ's Crucifixion and Resurrection is He has done it all.



A prayer for you today.


Lord, I have nothing to move You to show me mercy—nothing that would convince You to be gracious to me. All I have would only engage You against me or shut me out from mercy.

If sin and unworthiness exclude a sinner from faith and mercy, I could lie down in sorrow and despair forever.

But it is the glory of Your mercy to run freely and flow out upon those most unworthy.

Such am I, Lord, the unworthiest of any whoever sought faith in You or that ever-found mercy with You.

But the more unworthy, the more will it be for the glory of Your mercy that I not perish. The riches of Your grace appear even greater when You give me faith.

Glorify Your mercy on someone like me.

Show yourself to be God. Show forth Your glory by doing for me what people and angels, what heaven and earth cannot do for me.

While they see me perishing, they all say, “If the Lord does not help you, how will we help?”

The more helpless my condition is, the more it will be for Your glory to help me.

Only You can help me.

Help, Lord. All other help is in vain. Amen

God bless you this week. Christ has Risen. He has Risen, indeed.
