Praying with Paul: 'No Partiality'

Romans 2:8-11

Dear Father, holy and righteous judge,

I know that you will render to every man according to his works. To those who are factious and obey wickedness instead of the truth, there will be wrath and fury.

You have foretold tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, to the Jew first and also the non-Jew, but glory and honor and peace for every one who does good, to the Jew first and also to the non-Jew. For you show no partiality.

Help me do what is good, but not out of my own resources, for my goodness is unacceptable to you. Help me do what is good by living in and for Christ, whose goodness you will accept.

By your grace alone am I saved, as I entrust my soul to you. Thank you that you will impute Christ's righteousness to me on this basis.

In the name of Jesus I ask for your acceptance through my faith. Amen.
