Today’s Prayer

O LORD, my God, my Sovereign King, You are completely unfair in Your exchanges with me. I gave You doubt; You gave me mercy. I gave You parts of me; You gave me all of You. I gave You fear; You gave me faith. I gave You brokenness; You gave me healing. I gave You confusion; You gave me understanding. My Savior, my LORD, where would I be without You? You gave me redemption in exchange for the debt I could never repay. You gave me forgiveness for the hurt I inflicted. You gave me strength when all I offered You was weakness. You gave me light when I was lost in darkness. You gave me a way when there was no way for me. You gave me truth when I finally handed over the lies. Jesus, You are the only thing I need! When I gave You my broken heart, You replaced it with Your perfect heart. When I gave You my unbelief, You replaced it with faith. When I gave You my soul, You washed it clean in Your blood. When I gave You my self, You gave me Your sacrifice. When I gave You nothing, You gave me your love! Thank You, my LORD, for being unfair in Your exchanges so that I would not be lost; so that I would not be lacking the only thing I need –You. Under the blessed Word of Luke 23:33-34 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow in humble prayer.

And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified Him,
and the criminals, one on His right and one on His left. 
And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
Luke 23:33-34, ESV
