121 Days of Prayer

The purposes of this prayer are: Salvation, Holiness/Righteousness and Increased Faith.

Loving God, our faith in Jesus is the surety of our salvation. In his letter to the Romans, Paul explained that our good works cannot ensure that we will be saved, only living a sinless life could ensure us of that: “For Moses wrote that if a person could be perfectly good and hold out against temptation all his life and never sin once, only then could he be pardoned and saved. But the salvation that comes through faith says, ‘You don’t need to search the heavens to find Christ and bring him down to help you,’ and, ‘you don’t need to go among the dead to bring Christ back to life again.’ For salvation that comes from trusting Christ- which is what we preach- is already within easy reach of each of us; in fact, it is as near as our own hearts and mouths. For if you tell others with your own mouth that Jesus Christ is your Lord, and believe in your own heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:5–9 (TLB). Lord, we have said many times, and say again now, and will say again often, as long as we live, that Jesus is our Lord and Savior. We believe in our hearts that Jesus is Lord. Amen.
