Praying with Paul: 'An Invited Guest'

Romans 11:17

Dear Father, king of banquets,

May I enter your halls wearing the appropriate garment, the righteousness of Jesus Christ, not that of my own making. The false righteousness of adherence to man-made rules is a worthless covering. Only the true righteousness of belief in your Son will make my appearance acceptable to you.

Grant me true humility. If I boast, let it be about you. Let my pride be in what you have done for me, not in what I make of myself.

In the name of Jesus, the honoree of the banquet, I offer thanks for inviting me to your feast of good things. Amen.
