Praying with Paul: 'My Need'

Romans 5:6-11

Dear Father, gracious God,

Thank you, dear Father, that while we were helpless, Christ our Savior died for the ungodly. You showed your love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ your Son died for us.

Since therefore we are justified by Christ's blood, much more shall we be saved by him from your wrath! For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to you by the death of your Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life!

Let his life be lived in my life and the life of every one of your people! Not only so, but I now find so much joy in you as my God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received our reconciliation.

Thank you for your free and wonderful gift! Thank you for being my God!

By the authority of Christ and in his name I pray. Amen.
