“Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God and having Jesus as my Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
"Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sins to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gifts to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."
Today's Genesis 28:20-22 shows us a conditional prayer of Jacob after his big experience to see God in Bethel. If you read it carefully you might find that funny, and sad! How can we as creature tell our Creator that if you watch over me on my journey and everything good and I can come home, then, I will give a tenth of all that you give me!
Wow! This is a conditional prayer, very small faith!
On the contrary, in today's Matthew 9:20-22 and 28-30, the woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years and the two blind men's simple faith is totally different!
What kind of faith do you have with Jesus?
