The Mercy Prayer Chapter 3–The Prayer of the Heart
Have you considered praying The Mercy Prayer with every beat of your heart?
The Closer We Get to God
What if the closer you get to God the more you pray the mercy prayer? What if our closeness to Christ actually increases the frequency of our requests for his mercy? Has this been your experience?
Have you ever tried praying “Lord Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me” as you are falling asleep? What was it’s effect?
In, The Mercy Prayer: The One Prayer Jesus Always Answers, I quote A.W. Tozer when he wrote,
Were there no guilt in the world, no pain and no tears, God would yet be infinitely merciful; but His mercy might well remain hidden in His heart, unknown to the created universe. No voice would be raised to celebrate the mercy of which none felt the need. It is human misery and sin that call forth the divine mercy.
It’s not about us, it’s about God! When we cry out to God because of our suffering and sin we give God another chance to reveal who he is to the world!
