Receiving God’s Mercy

Lord thank you for being so rich in mercy, because of Your great and wonderful love that You love us with (Ephesians 2:4).  Thank You Lord that Your steadfast love never ceases and Your mercy never comes to and end but it is new every morning, great is Your faithfulness.  Thank You Lord for cleansing us through a spiritual transformation of a new birth and renewing by the Holy Spirit because of Your compassion and mercy that You show us because we are children of the most high God whom You saved (Titus 3:5). Lord, because we have been saved, let us abound in Your abundance of mercy that has caused us to be set apart for your purpose in an ever-living hope and confident assurance through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (1 Peter 1:3).  Teach us how to repent, ask for forgiveness, and how to fall into Your hands of mercy as and when we make mistakes and not into the hands of man (2 Samuel 24:14).  Because there is now no condemnation [no guilty verdict, no punishment] for those who are in Christ Jesus [who believe in Him as personal Lord and Savior] (Romans 8:1)  Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace [that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing] grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16).  Lord guide us to be merciful (responsive, compassionate, tender) to others just as You have been merciful to us (Luke 6:36).  For blessed [content, sheltered by God’s promises] are the merciful, for they will receive mercy (Matthew 5:7).  Lord just as we have been given mercy, reveal to us how to be used as vessels of Your mercy.

In Jesus Mighty Name We Pray, Amen!
