5.2.17 Prayer Prompt: My Grace-Full Life

PRAYER PROMPT ••• The name, My Grace-Full Life, was inspired by Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” 

I love these verses. 

They encapsulate so much in so little; this is the passage of scripture I claim as my “life verse.” 

But getting there took a while. 

As a child, I memorized John 3:16, and I knew, even during the years I strayed from my faith, that God loved me enough to send Jesus to die in my place. 

But I still felt like I needed to be perfect in order to “earn” my place in heaven. 

The first time I read those verses from Ephesians, my burden for “perfection” lifted. 

It finally clicked. 

What I had long-known from John 3:16 was that Jesus died to save me, but what the Holy Spirit finally got through my thick head was nothing I could do or not do was going to change my salvation. 

It was a God’s grace alone that gave me salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. 

There are no actions or good deeds that can sway it. 

God purposefully uses grace alone to keep us humble and dependent on Him. 

My life is full of His grace and I pray that you recognize the grace God so generously and lavishly pours out on all of you too! 

As you pray today, thank God for His goodness, His mercy, and His grace… 

The grace so great that when we accept His son through faith, we are promised eternal salvation, that can never be earned or broken… 

Pray a prayer of thanksgiving for the God-given grace that will lead to the most Grace-Full days for each of us who believe.

NOTE: Feel free to comment, but these prayer prompts are meant to be between you and God. Matthew 6:6 — But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
