Jesus heard that they had thrown the man out, and when he found him, he asked him, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” – John 9:35
Lord Jesus, for your mercy, I thank you. I was cast down and cast out because of my sin, and you sought me out. You planned for it before I was born. You sought me through my parents and others who brought your grace to me. You sought me out and taught to know your grace. You poured out your Holy Spirit on me and continue to do this throughout my life. For your abundance grace and mercy which has constantly sought me out and chased me down, I thank you. I should have been cast away from you forever, but you found me, poured out grace on me, and still keep me surrounded by your grace and mercy. I pray, keep me close to you. Keep me from hardening my heart and from growing bitter against you and others because of the things that happen in my life. Keep me from deflecting, from denying, from shifting blame. Make me honest with myself, with you and with others about my sin. And keep showing me mercy. I do believe in you, dear Jesus. Always keep me in this faith. Amen.
