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: Matthew 1:21
“She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” (Christian Standard Bible)
Father, you sent your Son to be born of Mary because you love us so greatly. We sinned. We rebelled. We turned against you. We did nothing to deserve your grace. Yet, gracious you are. Thank you for giving us Jesus–The Lord is Salvation. Thank you that through him you have taken away our sin. Thank you that because of him we are able to stand righteous before you. And thank you that one day Jesus will return and make all things new. Amen.
