Prayer for John 6:47

“"I assure you: Anyone who believes has eternal life.”

Praying through John 6:47

Heavenly Father, I am astonished at the simplicity of the good news of the gospel of grace - that whosoever believes on the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ will not die in their sins but be forgiven and have eternal life. Father, there are many that are trying to gain eternal life through their own good works and their own charitable acts and benevolent character. Open their eyes to the truth that we are all sinners in need of salvation and that no one comes to the Father except through faith in Jesus, the Son of God - through faith in the sacrificial offering of Himself on Calvary's Cross for the sin of the world. It is not Your will that any should perish but that all should turn from sin to Christ and acknowledge Him as Saviour. In Your anger against sin, show mercy to those that are lost in their trespasses and at enmity towards You. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
