And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Identity

Father, you bring me out of my troubles through your Son and by your Son I am preserved alive. I long to be perfect as you are perfect. Let not your children be mistaken by those who will mislead. Thank you for my identity as yours, not as a child of the flesh, but as a child of promise. So then I will not depend on my human desire or exertion, but on your matchless mercy. To the Christ, who is God over all, blessed forever! Amen.

Romans 9
