Want to find strength in the Word?

Try praying scripture. And then allow the Spirit to comfort you.

For example:

Scripture: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (I John 1:9)

Prayer: “Jesus, thank you. All I need to do is to tell you about my sin. Every time I can count on you to hear my prayer for forgiveness. You are able to forgive me because through the shedding of Your blood you’ve paid the cost. You’ve cleansed me of my sin by blotting it out with your sacrifice. I no longer stand before you unclean, for You, Jesus, have given me a robe of righteousness.

I praise You for this forgiveness. It is all I need. I praise you for my sin being cast away. For the covering of your blood. For the strengthening of me, your chosen child.”
