A simple prayer to pray from Keller’s “The Songs of Jesus”

songs of Jesus

Father, thank you that you are a God of grace – you give to us what we believe we deserve when in fact we don’t. Thank you that you have saved, rescued, protected us from so many forces of evil around us and you have saved us from ourselves. We wrongly believe we can handle our lives on our own but we need you. Help us to believe/live what the apostle Paul said, that “your power is made perfect in our weakness.” We want to give you space in our lives. We want you to be strong in our lives, and we’re strong as we acknowledge our weakness and need for you. Father that is grace…to not continue in our deluded thinking but to embrace your truths about who we are and about who you are. May this knowledge of your grace, of your good news in Jesus, make us more intensely devoted and faithful to you by obeying you because we love you.

Taken in part from Keller, Timothy. The Songs of Jesus: A Year of Daily Devotions in the Psalms (p. 266). Penguin Publishing Group. Kindle Edition.
