Grace is the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings. If you are grateful for your place in this world, it’s important to thank God for gracing you with His love. Here are a few prayers that can help guide you through expressing your thanks:

Grace is a gift from God and can only be received by faith in Jesus Christ. It is undeserved, but it is given to everyone who asks for it—whether they deserve it or not! Grace is a gift of love, mercy, and hope that brings us into the very presence of God (2 Corinthians 3:18). Through His grace, we are saved from our sins and given eternal life with Him (Ephesians 2:8-10).
We thank You for this amazing gift of grace!
3. Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and that I deserve the punishment for my sins.
I know I am a sinner and that I deserve the punishment for my sins. But because of your love for me, you paid that penalty on the cross in my place. Thank you so much, Jesus! Please forgive me for all my sins of thought, word, and action; and help me to avoid them in the future. I believe that you died for all humanity’s sins through your death on the cross at Calvary. By His stripes, we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).
And now by faith in Christ’s work on our behalf, we are saved (Ephesians 2:8–9). We have been made acceptable before God through Christ’s perfect sacrifice offered once for all time (Hebrews 7:27). For our sake he made him be sin who knew no sin so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21). For this reason, it says ‘when he ascended on high he led captivity captive and gave gifts to men'(Eph 4:8-10).
4. Lord God, I believe in You, but my faith could use some encouragement.
“Lord God, I believe in You, but my faith could use some encouragement.”
Faith is a journey, not a destination. You have to keep believing in order to get to the destination. Faith can be an easy thing to doubt, especially when you’ve been on your own for a long time and no one has been there for you. But we are not alone on this journey; God is with us every step of the way—whether or not we feel Him at times—and He encourages our faith by giving us signs and wonders along the way. Faith isn’t about doubting; it’s about trusting Him no matter what happens along our journey together.
5. Almighty Father, You have supported me in many trials, and I cannot thank You enough for Your grace.

Grace is God’s gift of salvation that comes to you through faith in Jesus Christ. It is not deserved but is always given freely by God because of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Grace includes all His blessings and favors toward us (Ephesians 1:7-8; 2 Thessalonians 2:16). See also Romans 4:5; 5:15; and James 1:17.
Grace often refers to unmerited favor or kindness given by God to those who deserve wrath instead (Romans 3:23). Grace can also refer to His mercy or forgiveness toward sinners (1 Corinthians 15:10).

9. Heavenly Father, grant me the grace to forgive others for their sins against me so that my heart may be free of bitterness.
Forgiveness is a sign of maturity, strength, and love. It also frees us from bitterness, anger, and hopelessness. Lord, grant me the grace to forgive others for their sins against me so that my heart may be free of bitterness.
10. Most Holy Father, please give me the wisdom to guard against evil and temptation in this world and to find comfort in Your presence with grace thanks to Jesus Christ.
God is good, all the time. God is worthy of our trust. God is all-powerful. God is all-knowing. God is all-merciful. God is all-forgiving. And most importantly, God loves us with an undying love that will never fail us or leave us alone in this world to fend for ourselves against its many temptations and evil forces that seek to destroy us both individually and collectively as a people on this planet Earth!
11. Even when I don’t deserve it, you give me kindness and forgiveness – thank you, God!
Praying for grace is all about asking God to show you His goodness and faithfulness, even when you don’t deserve it. When we’re not acting like the people He wants us to be, it can be difficult to receive grace. But God still gives it anyway!
Let’s look at some reasons why we should ask for more grace from God:
- God is merciful. “Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors” (Matthew 6:12). This verse shows that mercy goes both ways—God forgives others’ sins and therefore expects us, humans, to forgive each other’s sins so that He can continue being merciful towards us.
- God is forgiving. “For if you forgive men the wrongs they do, your heavenly Father will forgive you” (Matthew 6:14). When we ask for forgiveness from someone else or from ourselves (as in this prayer), we are saying that their actions were wrong—not just inappropriate but actually sinful—and that by asking them for forgiveness, they have been given a chance to repent and change their ways so they won’t repeat those same mistakes again in the future!
If you have not done so already, you might consider writing out your own prayers. It’s a good way to practice writing and it can be a useful tool when we are trying to memorize something.
