Miraculous Mercy

Have you ever thought, “I know I need to pray, but right now I’m just not worthy enough.  I’d better wait until I straighten out this situation.”  We were born sinners!  God loved us enough then to give His son to die for us – is that not unfailing love?   If we waited until we felt worthy enough to come to the throne, we’d never pray.   He has compassion enough to hear us in every situation, and to take our transgressions from us.

When immersed in our own sin, we should cry out to God, just as David did in this Psalm.  Then we won’t have to postpone our prayer.  No matter how sinful we feel, we must encourage ourselves to call out to God – “Have mercy!” God wants us to pray, not because we are worthy, but because He is merciful.
