Freedom and Confidence Approaching God in Prayer

Sometimes we don’t feel confident that we are worthy of approaching God in prayer.  This prayer helps us claim the freedom that is ours through Christ.

Scriptures:

“In him (Christ Jesus our Lord) and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.”  Ephesians 3:12.

“For through him we both have access to the Father by one Sprit.”  Ephesians 2:18

“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”  Hebrews 4:16

Freedom and Confidence Prayer

Dear God, Creator of the Universe and Father of every person on earth, I come to you by means of your son, my savior, Jesus Christ.  Thank you that through faith in him I can approach you with freedom and confidence.

Here are the things that Christ has freed me from that otherwise would have made me unworthy to enter your presence….

Here are the ways my relationship with Christ gives me confidence that you accept me…

I thank you that through my relationship with Christ I have been given access to both you and the Holy Spirit.  Here are the parts of my life where I need the power of the Holy Spirit today….

Thank you that you sit on a throne of grace where you act with mercy and love.

Help me to confidently receive your mercy in the following parts of my life today….

Now please give me Your grace and help for the following need in my life….

Help me to confidently believe that you have heard me and help me to dare to do the things you desire.

Amen.
