Prayer for Romans 4:7

“How happy those whose lawless acts are forgiven and whose sins are covered!”

Praying through Romans 4:7

Heavenly Father, thank You for the truth in Romans that we are not justified by when we do, but in Whom we believe. Thank You that I am not justified by works of the Law but by faith in Christ. Thank You for what He did for me on the Cross, when He bore my sins and carried my iniquity on His sinless shoulders. Thank You that all my lawless deeds have been forgiven - past, present, and future, and that by faith in Him I am born anew and have been placed into eternal union with Christ Jesus my Saviour. Keep me from thinking that works of the Law are required for my initial salvation or my ongoing sanctification. I pray that I may work the works of God that You have prepared for me to do, in the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, and for your eternal praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
