Prayer to live by grace

For many Christians, today marks the beginning of Lent. It may be a time when you decide to commit to fasting or give up a bad habit. Or you might seek to get free of negative behavior or attitudes.

If you do this out of obligation, it might help you. But if you make a change because of love, then miraculous things can happen. Even though you can’t force it, you can pray for it. Ask God to mold your heart. Let his grace transform you and purify your motives.

Instead of saying, “I have to,” let your heart say, “I want to. I want to because I am loved by a great God who sent his Son to save me. Now I can love in return.”

Prayer to live by grace

but he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2 Corinthians 12:9
