Prayer for James 2:21

“Wasn't Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?”

Heavenly Father, thank You there is nothing contradictory in Scripture. I pray that you would open my understanding of passages that may be difficult to understand or taken out of context, in order to promote an unbiblical doctrine. Thank You that we are saved by grace through faith and that my salvation depends on the work that Christ has already done and not on the works I do in my Christian life. I pray that I may live a life that is holy unto the Lord and honours Your name and that the works I do 'justify' my faith in You. Give me wisdom and understanding so I may mature in the faith; display patience in trials; show compassion to others be a doer of the word, through the power of Your Holy Spirit and for your greater glory, AMEN.
