A month ago I wrote a prayer in my journal that has honestly transformed my relationship with Jesus as of late. I’ve been longing for intimacy with Him and this prayer reflects how the gospel becomes more personal to me every day.
I pray that you good news would never get old to me. I pray that every time I hear it, I would be reminded of Your son’s perfect sacrifice for me. That He took all of my doubts and fears with Him to the cross and conquered them for me. That He loved me enough to lay down His life for me. That He loved me enough to take on human flesh, experience every temptation I ever would and not fall once, then take on the weight of every sin I would ever commit, wear it on your shoulders, and take the punishment that I deserved, died and rose again just so I could be in right standing with You. That even though I fall short of Your glory daily, You remind me that Your grace will always be sufficient for me. I pray that I would never forget that I am holy and blameless in Your sight, that You have ordered my steps down to the very intricate details, and that You’ll never stop pursuing me.
You’re truly the coolest.
Thanks for everything,
