Today’s Prayer Challenge: Remembering God’s Grace As The Source Of Our Salvation

“16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the  faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified…21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.” ~ Galatians 2:16, 21 (KJV)

Dear Lord,

We first and foremost come to You giving You all the praise, glory, and honor as the one and only true and living God. We thank You for salvation — sending Your Son to die on the cross for our sins so that we can have eternal life with You in heaven. Please forgive us of our sins, and we thank You in advance for helping us to overcome our weaknesses and shortcomings.

Lord, we come with a special prayer today thanking You for reminding us that it is not our works that save our souls but Your grace alone. Whereas producing good works is a byproduct of the spiritual transformation from Your saving grace, we openly acknowledge in Your presence that we are lost without You. Thank You, Father, for showering us with Your unconditional love despite our faults. Thank You, Father, for making salvation accessible to all. 

It is in the magnificent name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we pray. Amen.
