Praying with Paul: 'More than Conquerors'

Romans 8:34-37

Dear Father, our ultimate security and joy,

Since Christ Jesus, who died, is at your right hand interceding for us, who shall separate us from your love? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? No, not even the sword, for it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered."

Shall any of these terrible things change your love one bit? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through you, the awesome God who loved us with an awesome love.

May I never forget your love or ignore your sacrifice. May I never use trouble as an excuse for not doing good, for you have the power and authority to use trouble to produce good, and so I submit myself to your transforming power.

In the name of your holy Son, I pray. Amen.
