Day 38

A Prayer To Contend For The Faith

"Beloved, while I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people."

Jude 1:3

Holy God,

You are Creator of all people, both saints and sinners alike. We plead to you that You might consider us saints through the power and sacrifice of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Walk alongside us today and remind us of the countless ways You have provided for us! Free us from the bondage of sin today, and as Paul addressed Jude, we long in this moment for You to call us “Beloved.” Holy Spirit, embolden us to action, transform our hearts of “assured apathy” into hearts of “loving conviction,” and motivate us to accept the charge to “contend for the faith.” In the name of the One who is the Only Begotten, Christ Jesus. Amen.
