Father God, I do not deserve Your mercy or grace. I am not worthy to gather the crumbs from under Your table, but I thank You that I have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb and in Jesus name, am able to approach Your throne for the grace and strength I need to keep me from falling, so that I may walk in Your ways and live godly in Christ Jesus.
Lord, I desire to be faithful, but I have yielded to temptation on so many occasions and though I have tried so hard to live up to my own standards and resolution, each time I have failed and fallen short. Lord, I know that I have tried to resist in my own strength and I confess that I cant do this by myself any more.
I pray that You would teach me to draw my strength from Your fathomless resources rather than to rely on my own limited supply. Teach me to trust my life into Your hands completely and to submit to the leading of the Holy Spirit in my life, so that I may walk in spirit and truth. Teach me what it really means in Your Word when it says “without me you can do nothing,” so that I may learn the truth that “I can do all things through Christ Jesus, Who gives me the strength.” I ask this in Jesus' name,
