Who will condemn?

Praying the Scriptures

Romans 8:33-34  "Who shall bring any charge against God's elect?  It is God who justifies.  Who is to condemn?  Christ Jesus is the one who died - more than that he was raised - who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us."  ESV

Gracious God,
In case you can't tell,
this is supposed to be a judge's gavel...
You are so forgiving.
Thank you.
Thank you for such an amazing free gift!  
Help me to remember this gift - so freely given - 
is not just for me - not just for those like me.
You offer it to all 
because that's the kind of loving God you are.  
Help me to remember that it's not my job to judge,
not my job to condemn.  
It's just my job to love as you love me.
                            ~~ AMEN

Still trying my hand at this... bear with me, I know I'm not great at it but I'm trying!  Have you ever prayed the scriptures?  How did you feel about it?  Did you like it?  Do you still do it?  Have any words of wisdom?  Share!


  1. I'd like to really get a grasp on how to pray the Scriptures; I know it's important.


    1. I'm obviously still learning myself. I feel like a lot of my prayers are still pretty childlike but I've always prayed as if having a conversation with Him. I'm still a work in progress in all things! :)
