It is Tuesday, February 23rd. TGFT.
Listen to the word of the Lord to us today
Luke 18:13 “And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.” (KJV)
The prayer that God hears. God hears the sincere sinners prayer. In the story of the Pharisee and the publican, they both prayed, but the sinners prayer was heard because he asked for grace and was not bragging about all he did. Let us be like the sinner who humbly comes to God seeking his mercy and his grace. Let us like the publican come to God, asking Him to have mercy on us. God be merciful to us today we pray in Jesus name, amen, and amen.
Prayer for the day: Father, thank you for your grace, mercy and love. God be merciful to us today and everyday. This we pray in Jesus name, Amen.
