Pulpit Notes: Struggles Lend Insight of God’s Mercy
Father, for all my supplications to be released from temptation and strife, each struggle I endure provides insight of Your mercy that helps to specify the boundaries of a holy and righteous life.
I sometimes fail, I often stumble, but Your Spirit illuminates Your Word and gives wisdom and direction. Write Your truth upon my heart, O God, and guide me; turn the bitterness of sin into the sweetness of grace. It is the life of reconciliation, the forgiveness of sins, the proclamation of Your mercy to which I am called this day. Mark then Your path for me, O Lord, and permit every strife and temptation to humbly point me home. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Soli Deo Gloria,
Reverend Dr. Conrad C. Sharps
