Praying for a Merciful Heart
Sovereign Saviour, I approach your throne of grace and mercy asking that you touch my heart. Lord, grant me a merciful heart. Engulf and fill my heart with the type of mercy you gave, when Jesus died on that cross to save a lowly sinner such as myself. I do not deserve such a beautiful gift, but yet You gave to me without question. Your love poured out as the precious blood of the Lamb flowed, so that we can have that same mercy.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Allow me to be a replica of Your love, let Your light shine through. Allow me to have mercy on myself as well as others, let me follow in Your footsteps. May I forgive just as You forgave the world. Soften my heart so that I can touch the lives of others, lead me, guide me and walk beside me as I portray You in all that I do.
James 2:13 For judgment is without mercy to him that hath showed no mercy: mercy glorieth against judgment.
Today Lord, I forgive those who have done me wrong in the past and I forgive those who will do me wrong in the future, I release it! Every chain that binds me to negativity, hurt and pain will be broken, I curse it out and rebuke it and invite Your mercy into my heart, in Jesus’ Almighty name I pray, Amen!
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
