DANIEL 9:18 (NLT)
We make this plea, not because we deserve help, but because of your mercy.
EPHESIANS 3:12 (CEV)
Christ now gives us courage and confidence, so that we can come to God by faith.
We trust so much in God's mercy that we're unafraid of presenting our boldest requests to him.
Thank you, God, for listening to us -- even when we ask for the silliest things. You don't show us the door. Forgive me for being timid and afraid that I might offend you. Give me bold faith. I'm going to glory in your mercy. Amen.
