A Prayer

YHWH, your mercies are new in the morning and great at night. You are faithful to your promises, remembering your covenant to children, and to children’s children.

YHWH God, my sins are great. I stand before you as Israel: broken and lost, in need of your grace. My only plea is the blood and righteousness of your Son, your Messiah, your faithful suffering Servant, the one in whom Israel’s and Adam’s purposes are summed up.

For Jesus’ sake, and for the sake of your covenants of promise: forgive my sins, restore me to fellowship through your Holy Spirit, and grant that my life would henceforth be honoring and pleasing to you, for your satisfaction and for the sake of your Name.
