Prayer for Grace

Heavenly Father,

I come before You today with a humble and contrite heart. I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that I fall short of Your glory every day. I ask for Your forgiveness and for Your grace to fill my life to overflowing. I pray for Your strength to resist temptation and for the wisdom to make decisions that honor You.

I also lift up any specific needs or concerns I have, knowing that You are a loving and compassionate God who cares for me deeply. I ask that You would provide for me in all my needs, both physical and spiritual and that You would grant me the peace that passes understanding. I also pray for those who do not yet know You, that they would come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

I give You all the glory, honor, and praise, for You alone are worthy of my worship and devotion.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen
