Prayer for Romans 2:13

“For the hearers of the law are not righteous before God, but the doers of the law will be declared righteous.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your word of truth. Help me to cease from my own strivings by trying to produce works of righteousness, which You have said in Your Word can never justify me in Your sight. Help me to see clearly that the work that You require of me is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and that being a 'doer of the word' is to trust on Him, Who alone can justify the lost sinner and Who alone is the Justifier of all who believe. Help me to see that being a 'doer of the word' is not carrying out works of the flesh or trying to adhere to works of the law, but refers to the one Who believes on Christ for salvation  - knowing that it by faith in Him and not by works of the law that we are justified .. and that it is our faith that is credited to us as righteousness, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
