"PRAYING GOD'S WORD" Prayers for Overcoming Ongoing Guilt Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4
lead us up to today's 5th part of PRAYERS for "Overcoming Feelings of Guilt" from Beth Moore's Chapter 9 of PRAYING GOD'S WORD. (red= Beth'swords/prayers)
Today's scripture-prayers are taken from the book of Romans.
"O God, never let me show contempt for the riches of Your kindness, tolerance, and patience, not realizing that Your kindness leads me toward repentance." (Romans 2:4)
"Lord, apart from You, there is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks You, God. All have turned away. We have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one. (Romans 3:10-12) God, the righteousness that comes from You comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of You, God, and are justified freely by Your grace through the redemption that came by Your Son, Christ Jesus. (Romans 3:22-23) Help me accept that Your gift of grace has never and will never be relegated by my ability to be good and righteous. Freedom from the burden of my own sin accompanies true repentance and acceptance that Your Son's death fully pardoned me. "
Let us pause and reflect on Our precious Saviour Jesus Christ and His Crucifixion for us, our sins that separate us from God. Confess any sins and feel His forgiveness pour over you.
Now, it's your turn to PRAY GOD'S WORD from these scriptures in Romans.
Romans 8: 31;33;34;37
I hope that taking this week to practice "PRAYING GOD'S WORD" has been helpful to encourage you to continue turning God's Word into your prayers and also if you struggled with ongoing feelings of guilt that you can now be confident that if we are in Christ, we are not hopeless and if we realize we've never developed godly sorrow over certain sin, that this week we ask God to help us with this and He has and will do it, because He is faithful to His promises.
If we have repented of sin and yet guilt keeps assailing us, let's start refusing the accuser's attacks and fight back with God's Word through our prayers. He died to set us free, so let us lay that ongoing feeling of guilt at the cross this day and not take it back with us or allow the enemy to remind us of what is already forgiven, once we ask for God's forgiveness, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness... so IT IS FINISHED this day.
We are overcomers and the door has been opened to set us FREE!
"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." Galatians 5:1
It's Friday but Sunday's coming!
Have a BLESSED RESURRECTION DAY!
