Praying through Romans 1:21

Heavenly Father, the world is becoming increasingly evil, and the rejection of Your gracious offer of salvation, by faith in Jesus Christ, seems to have saturated this fallen world. But You are a God of mercy and grace, Who is not willing that ANY should perish, but that all should come to repentance and faith in Christ. Thank You that every man has the free-will to accept Your offer of salvation, by trusting in Jesus, Who died so that they might live. I pray that many, who are in the valley of decisions, would turn to Christ and trust in You today, for the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting, and use me I pray, to touch the lives of some with the good news of the gospel of God. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

Praying through Romans 1:22

Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing book of Romans and the clear way that it explains, step-by-step, the depravity of fallen man and consequences of our sin, but then goes on to detail, that our sins may be forgiven – by grace, through faith in Christ, and how we may live in the power of the indwelling Spirit. We pray that many whose eyes are blinded to the truth, whose consciences have been seared and who foolish hearts have bought into Satan’s deception, will turn from their wicked way and call out to Christ for the forgiveness of their sin and life everlasting. This we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Keep me ever mindful of Your goodness and grace towards me and all the children of men - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
