Sunday Scripture and Prayer

Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone. Because one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. But because one other person obeyed God, many will be made righteous.

God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 5:18-21 (NLT)


Thank You God, for providing grace to cover my sins. Thank you for creating a way for us to have fellowship with You, through the blood of Jesus. 

Give me courage daily, to confess and repent of the wrong decisions I make each day. I would love to not need Your grace, but I confess I need so much of it. 

Father, guard my heart, and keep it focused on You. Lord, I need You so much! Thank you for giving us Jesus as a Savior. 

Wherever I am today, I ask that You will cover me with Your Holy Spirit, that I will remain close to You, and choose to love You more. Help me to abide in Your gift of new life today. Refresh and renew my heart, that I might live that life fully, being a light in darkness and pointing others to You. 

In Jesus' Name,

Amen
