Plea for Grace

Archive for the ‘Prayer’ Category

It’s December; not only December, but it’s 11 days until Christmas, and 18 days until we stop writing 2019 . . .

If there is anything that I have learned in 2019, it’s that I can make plans and have goals, but . . .

Proverbs 19:21 ESV – 21 Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand.

I am learning to hold my plans and goals loosely; not to procrastinate; to take joyful advantage of every “good” day that I can; to not resent the “tough” days, but to trust that God’s purpose stands.

Beginning January 1, and continuing until Easter (April 12), by God’s grace I will be reading and meditating on the life of Jesus, using the book, One Perfect Life by John Macarthur

The pace will be such that there will be time for memorizing, praying, and simply being awestruck by knowing Jesus as He has revealed Himself in scripture. I would love for you to join me! The link above will give you any information you need to purchase the book, new or used, print or kindle.

Have a very blessed Christmas,




Knowing our temptations, God the Son intercedes for us. He opens the doors for us to boldly ask God the Father for mercy. Thus, God is both the initiation and conclusion of true prayer.

Hebrews 7:22-25 ESV – 22 This makes Jesus the guarantor of a better covenant. 23 The former priests were many in number, because they were prevented by death from continuing in office, 24 but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. 25 Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.

Romans 8:31-34 ESV – 31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died–more than that, who was raised–who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.

Lord God,

Not only are You Father, not only are You the Spirit who indwells me, but You are also God the Son, interceding for me. What a specific, intentional relationship! Thank You for Your great salvation.
