Oh Lord, I pray that we will all gain the type of faith that never runs dry. That our hope in Your promises will remain until the end of our days. A faith in You, Jesus. We accept Your sacrifice for sins and come unto You now. And Lord, I pray that if people’s faith is not strong now, that it will increase and not die off. If people’s faith is on the verge of deteriorating, I pray that something happens that will spark new life into them. Sometimes we need a jolt of lightning to wake us up to the knowledge of our sins. And I pray for these lost souls, and for more boldness to go and talk to them. We are Your light in this darkened world, and I pray that more people will shine brightly, that people will see them and glorify You, God, in the heavens. Lord, help us know who needs to hear Your gospel message of hope and who is not ready. Time is a ticking on this earth and we do not know when it is will be our last day or others. Therefore, with urgency do we do Your will on earth as it is in heaven. We ask that You would have Your way in our lives and the lives we touch. Help us to know the things we ought to be doing, day in and day out, that will please You, Lord, and my King. I pray that what I am up to now is respectful to Your best wishes for us God. And if there is anything that needs to be removed from my life and others, make those things obviously aware to us. I will change for Your sake, especially since You are leading me in a way that I ought to live. I love You, Lord. I give You praise. Amen.
Romans 4:23-25 (KJV)
23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;
24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;
25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
God’s righteousness is imputed upon us when we fully believe that Jesus died for our sins and also rose from the dead.
