I am a Needy Sinner

Today, I stand in need of God’s Grace.

That it would be free, for I cannot merit it.

That it would be great, enough to cover a multitude of sins.

That Grace would proceed from God (source), through God (medium), and be found in God Himself, for I have none of it in and of myself .

That it would be sufficient to deliver me from what I deserve, to be cast into outer darkness!

That it would be mighty to save, because I am helpless to save myself.

That it would seal me and keep me, for I am prone to wander.

That it would be triumphant, for I have failed.

Oh, the kindness of your Grace, oh Lord! Oh, that you would lavish your Grace on me, a needy sinner!

“…set your hope fully on the Grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”   I Peter 1:13b
