Prayer to Show Grace

Father, help us to be living examples of Your unconditional love, grace, mercy, and joy, instead of the judgmental people the world expects us to be.  

Oh Jesus, you were battered, You suffered on that cross, You died, You rose again, so all of your children could be forgiven forever. Reminds us it's not just for the nice people.  Your death was for the angry, the disobedient, and belligerent people too.  For Your word says,

"God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the worth through him." (John 3:17)

Father, in everything we do, in everyone we come into contact with today, help us to honor You.  If we have accepted You as our savior, You live in us, then Your honor is at stake with every encounter we have.  -In Jesus' name, Amen

Prayer to Honor Jesus

 

Jesus we want to honor Your heroic act of laying down your life for us! Oh Lord, help our lives to reflect our appreciation! For Your word says,

 

"We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters." -1 John 3:16

 

Lord, replace our selfishness with generosity! Show us Lord, the areas of our lives that can we give up to better honor you and the sacrifice of Your son.
