From Simple Prayers, Day 347
I DRAW NEAR TO YOU, GOD
As I approach Your throne of grace today, I am grateful that You care about the things that concern me and that You want me to offer them up to You.
Who makes me different from anyone else? And what do I have that I did not receive? And if I did receive it, why I should I boast as though I had not received it? (1 Corinthians 4:7)
May Your merciful kindness be my comfort,
According to Your promise to Your servant. (Psalm 119:76)
Take a moment to share your personal needs with God, including your physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual concerns.
THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE
I will sing of Your lovingkindness and justice; to You, O Lord, I will sing praises. (Psalm 101:1)
As the gospel spread to the Gentiles, many rejoiced and glorified the word of the Lord, and all who were appointed for eternal life believed. (Acts 13:48)
I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH
By this is Your Father glorified, that I bear much fruit, showing myself to be Your disciple. (John 15:8)
MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD
God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. The one who sows to please his flesh will reap corruption; the one who sows to please the Spirit will of the Spirit reap eternal life. (Galatians 6:7–8)
Whatever is not from faith is sin. (Romans 14:23)
Lord, I thank You for Your lovingkindness and justice and for the good news of eternal life through Your Son. I pray that I would glorify You by bearing much fruit, and I ask that I would live by faith and sow to please Your Spirit.
