Tonight we are at a prayer and worship time with our church. We read several Scriptures about grace. The verse that came to mind is Eccl. 1:3:
What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?
I have been working so hard reccently. But for what? I need to spend time with God and know His grace. My heart is hard to His holiness and worthiness for praise. I need to cultivate an attitude of thankfulness and gratefulness.
Heavenly Father, please forgive me for taking you for granted. I want to appreciate you and your grace. Lord Jesus, I want to be continually and genuinely thankful for your sacrifice and love. Holy Spirit, I want to be consciously aware of your presence and obedient to your leading. Please soften my hard heart. You are full of grace, and I am weak and broken, in need of your grace. I have no life apart from you. I love you, and I want to walk with you. I ask in the name of Jesus.
