Prayer for Matthew 5:20

“For I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

Dear heavenly Father, I am not worthy to gather up the crumbs under Your table, and yet You have forgiven my sin and have clothed me in Christ’s righteousness – simply because I trust in Jesus as Saviour. I pray that He will live His life through me, to Your praise and glory in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
