Lent Prayers – A Puritan Prayer to Cling to Christ and Rest on Him

I’ve been reflecting a lot on John 15 and what it means to abide in Christ lately, so I really appreciated this prayer posted by Trevin Wax over the weekend:

O Heavenly Father,
Teach me to see that if Christ has satisfied divine justice
He can also deliver me from my sins;
that Christ does not desire me, now justified,
to live in self-confidence in my own strength,
but gives me the law of the Spirit of life
to enable me to obey You;
that the Spirit and His power are mine by resting on Christ’s death…

You have taught me
that faith is nothing else than receiving Your kindness;
that it is an adherence to Christ,
a resting on Him,
love clinging to Him as a branch to the tree,
to seek life and vigor from Him.

-Puritan prayer (adapted)
