There are times when we feel like we are not kind to ourselves and others. We all make mistakes, and each one of us might be trying to break free from negative thoughts and behaviors. Our mistakes don’t mean we are not living by God’s grace.
It is normal to think or feel that way, especially when we are facing trials. But God will always give us His grace that will serve as a light during our darkest times. His blessing and power will strengthen and guide us in defeating all the negativity and worries that make us feel separated from Him. Praying for grace means we are relying on God to help us. It is also another way of growing our relationship with Him.
Let’s keep our heart and soul living by God’s grace no matter how tough the challenges we are dealing with. We just have to trust Him, rest our worries, and be honest of our mistakes through prayers. (Read: Prayers to Surrender Completely to God’s Will)
Prayer to Live by God’s Grace
Dear Holy Lord, for too long, I tried to live without you.
For too long, my heart wandered in the darkness alone.
You never stopped calling out.
You never gave up on me.
Now my heart understands you are life and love.
Without you, nothing else makes sense.
Yes, I must do my part.
Yes, I must obey.
Still, your grace is sufficient to satisfy my soul.
May it all come forth from that truth,
And may my life be made whole by the love and mercy of Jesus.
For only He is holy, only He is Lord.
Christ sits at the right hand of the Father.
And His Spirits set me free.
From the lie that I am alone.
Bring me before Your throne, Oh lord.
Let me bow down and worship, a sinner restored.
I am your child in Christ.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
