Praying the Bible ~ Luke 17:15-19

Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.

Text: Luke 17:15-19
But one of them, seeing that he was healed, returned and ,with a loud voice, gave glory to God. He fell facedown at Jesus’ feet, thanking him. And he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus said, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Didn’t any return to give glory to God except this foreigner?” And he told him, “Get up and go on your way. Your faith has saved you.”  (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, we sing of your amazing grace, but sometimes our hearts aren’t really amazed. We live with spiritual leprosy until, through Jesus and our faith in him, you make us clean. May we be more thankful for your kindness and more worshipful for your goodness. Every good thing in life is a gift from you. May our hearts resonate with thanksgiving each day. More than that, may we always remember the cleansing from sin that you provided. For, even on the worst of days, to have Jesus is to have more than we can dream or imagine. Thank you, Father. Amen.
