A Prayer Prompted by John 3

Dear Father in Heaven,

We thank you for sending Jesus Christ, your Son, so that we might believe in him and receive eternal life.  We do not want to be among those who would hear this message from Jesus and yet reject him all the same.

We grasp the fact that our eternity depends upon our response to Jesus Christ.  We receive him and believe in him so that we might be born again – born from above – and be able enter your kingdom.

We receive this free gift of eternal life, which we cannot earn or strive to achieve.  It can only come from you. This is in fact why you sent your Son, so that we might believe in him.  Cleanse and renew us now by your Holy Spirit’s power.

Let Christ now increase as we each decrease.  Let us be who you make us, nothing more, or less or other than who we now are, in Christ.

Amen
