Day 39

A Prayer For A Greater Faith

"For we walk by faith, not by sight."

2 Corinthians 5:7

Creator God,

You are the one, true, eternal God, Creator of all things visible and invisible. You declare Your glory in the heavens and exhibit Your beauty throughout creation. Through Your Son Jesus Christ, You revealed the exact representation of Your glory and divine nature. Jesus, as Israel’s Messiah, You revealed the heart of the Father through Your life, ministry, death and resurrection. You have led us to desire You through Your prevenient grace, and through faith we are brought into Your family to experience saving grace. The same faith that leads us to salvation now transforms us into Your image by your sanctifying grace. Lord Jesus, help us to walk by faith as Your disciples — not looking at the actions of others, the culture or even our circumstances around us, but by placing our total trust and dependence upon You and Your life-giving promises. Holy Spirit, increase our faith in this season and remind us that it is faith alone that pleases God. Enable us to live daily by faith, fixing our eyes on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. In His name we pray. Amen.
