Praying with Paul: 'Mutual Faith'

Tuesday, January 4, 2022

Romans 1:16-17

Dear Father,

Help us never to be ashamed of the Good News but to have great pride in it, since it is your power of salvation for everyone, the Jew first, then the non-Jew.

In it you revealed your righteousness from one degree of faith to another. As your prophet Habakkuk declared, "The just shall live by faith."

Grant me, Father, to be filled with faith and to show it in my faithfulness. In fact, I am able to live every day by my trust in you! I am sustained by my trust in you!

Thank you for being worthy of my trust! In the name of Jesus. Amen.
