Praying with Paul: 'I Confess!'

Thursday, February 10, 2022

Romans 10:1-8

Dear Father,

Thank you that Christ is the end of the law to those who have faith. Thank you that I am justified by faith in him, not by some system of merit.

May I not think of Christ as being so high in heaven that he is inaccessible to us, or, like unbelievers, think of him as being dead and not available.

May I continually confess with my mouth the belief that is in my heart: Jesus is Lord! And God raised him from the dead!

Help me rather to know that he is nearer than breathing!

In Jesus' name. Amen.
