Praying the Bible ~ Romans 3:23-26

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: Romans 3:23-26
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. God presented him as an atoning sacrifice in his blood, received through faith, to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his restraint God passed over the sins previously committed. God presented him to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so that he would be righteous and declare righteous the one who has faith in Jesus. (Christian Standard Bible)

Father, each of us have sinned. We have rebelled and spurned your truth. We deserve nothing from you. You owe us nothing, but freely you have given us your love. Thank you for Jesus. Without him, we have no hope beyond this world; but with him, we have forever hope. You not only have forgiven us, wiping the slate clean, but you have also declared us righteous with the righteousness of Jesus. Our debt has been replaced with funds that never run out. The gift of your grace. Thank you, Father. Amen.
