Lord, I know you are merciful. I’ve been taught that you provide grace and mercy in spite of my behavior and in spite of my sins. You are a good God that comes to those that need You, no matter what.
And Lord, I need you now in my life more than ever. I know that I’m not perfect. I know that my sins are not hidden from you. I know that, at times, I sin knowing it’s a sin. I’m human, Lord, and while that’s no excuse, I know you love me despite my human nature.
Lord, I need you today to provide for me. I need your grace in my life to provide strength, because I am weak. I face temptations every day, and I wish I could say that I always walk away. I cannot do it alone any more. I just can’t. I need you to give me the strength and provide me with the guidance to overcome these desires to sin.
I need you to give me direction in darker times when I wonder if I can even face the next day. You can move the mountains that block my way in life. You can give to me what I need in my life.
Please, Lord, I ask of you to come into my life and offer your grace. I am open to it and ready to accept it. Allow my heart to always be focused on You and make my desire to live for You.
Lord, I know from the scripture that your grace is bestowed no matter what, so I just ask for it today. I may not always be perfect, but I strive to be better. Lord, help me be better. Help me see the clear, narrow path in front of me so I can walk in your ways and in your glory.
In your name, Amen.
