Praying with Paul: 'None Righteous'

Friday, January 12, 2024

Romans 2:25-3:20

Dear Father, holy God,

Allow me to bear the marks of your covenant in my heart and my mind. May I be a spiritual descendant of Abraham. Let my praise be not from men but from you!

Help me understand that all human beings are under the power of sin, as it is written, "None is righteous, no not one!"

I ask forgiveness for all my sins by reason of your perfect expiation put forth in Christ Jesus. Clothe me with his righteousness, not my own. Having nothing to claim for myself, I put my trust in him.

In the name of Jesus, the all-sufficient sacrifice for sin and my holy intercessor, I pray. Amen.
