Prayer

By gracepoint In Devotion Text with Comments Off on Prayer

Our church is continuing our current devotional format, to devote Mondays and Fridays to prayer and study through Apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans on Tuesdays through Thursdays. As we memorize our hymn of the month together, we pray the sentiments expressed in the hymn “And Can It Be” and the gospel truths will shine brighter in our hearts and in our lives.


“Prayer – secret, fervent, believing prayer – lies at the root of all personal godliness.”

William Carey

Prayer of Gratitude

Prayer of Supplication


Hymn of September

And Can It Be

Verse 1

And can it be that I should gain

An int’rest in the Savior’s blood?

Died He for me, who caused His pain?

For me, who Him to death pursued?

Amazing love! how can it be

That Thou, my God, should die for me?

(Chorus)

Amazing love! How can it be

That Thou, my God, should die for me!

Verse 2

He left His Father’s throne above,

So free, so infinite His grace;

Emptied Himself of all but love,

And bled for Adam’s helpless race.

‘Tis mercy all, immense and free;

O praise my God, it reaches me.

Verse 3

Long my imprisoned spirit lay

Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;

Thine eye diffused a quick’ning ray,

I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;

My chains fell off, my heart was free;

I rose, went forth and followed Thee.

Verse 4

No condemnation now I dread;

Jesus and all in Him is mine!

Alive in Him, my living Head,

And clothed in righteousness divine;

Bold I approach th’eternal throne

And claim the crown,

Through Christ, my own.

Words by Charles Wesley, 1738;
