Prayer for Romans 3:20

“For no flesh will be justified in His sight by the works of the law, for through the law [comes] the knowledge of sin.”

Heavenly Father, for too long I have striven to make myself righteous in my own eyes through my own merit - by attempting to do my own good works and by trying to keep the commandments in my own strength. But I recognise that there is nothing that I can do to make myself pleasing in Your sight, except in and through the life of Christ dwelling in me. Help me to live in total dependence upon You and not on myself. Thank You that in Christ I am justified, redeemed and clothed in HIS righteousness, and help me I pray, to live as You intended me to live, in utter dependence on YOU and not on myself, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
