“Prayerlessness is pride that says you don’t need God.” (The Daniel Key, Chapter 11)
PRAY WITH ME
King of kings and Lord of lords,
I bow before You. You are magnificent.
You alone are worthy of all praise and honor and glory and power and wisdom and wealth. You are the Source of life, the Sustainer of life. The next breath I draw is a gift of Your grace and mercy. How can I begin to think that I don’t need You? For everything. For anything.
You have said You did not come “to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” because sinners know they need a Savior. You have warned that the attitude— even within the church— that arrogantly refuses to acknowledge need, boasting, “I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing,” is repulsive to You and will be rejected by You.
So, I receive Your counsel, and come as one who is spiritually “wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.” I need You. You have promised that if I ask in Your name, I will receive.
I know I am coming to the King. Your resources are unlimited. Your grace is sufficient. Your power is undisputed. Your love is unconditional. I know I can never ask for too much. You generously give gifts both great and small. Bowing humbly before You, I ask for: _____________ Before receiving it from Your hand, I thank You.
For the glory of Your great name,
