Praying For Open Doors of Grace
Today, we are going to be praying for open doors of grace. What is grace? Grace is a spontaneous gift from God to people. It is a gift from God that is totally generous, free, totally unexpected and undeserved. According to Charles Swindoll, “Grace is the kindness shown by a superior to an inferior, and there is no obligation on the part of the superior to show this kindness. Grace is a favor that is undeserved and unearned. It is extended fully and freely to those who won’t ever be able to repay it.”
Grace took Abraham an idol worshiper and transformed him to become the father of faith. Out of all the people in the world at that time, grace smiled on him and God made an everlasting covenant with him. Grace decided to use Moses, a murderer and turned him to a great prophet. He was not even ready again for God’s assignment. Moses gave so many excuses to God, yet grace preferred him. Grace turned Apostle Paul, a persecutor into a great preacher. The grace of God is not the product of your work, so you can not boast about it.
Many of us today are products of grace. Your salvation is by grace. We have so many people living in darkness today who have not known Christ. However, that grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. So, the grace is available for all to be saved. After your salvation, grace will also teach you how to live a godly life. Grace will teach you how to say no to ungodliness and to the passion of this world.
Examples of Those Who Experience Open Doors of Grace
God told Apostle Paul that His grace is sufficient for him. This is evidence that there is enough grace for everyone of us to run the race. Apostle Peter denied Jesus Christ three times. Yet, grace made him the leader of the Church after Jesus’ resurrection. The thief nailed alongside Jesus would have never been saved if not for God’s grace. That grace is still available for all of us today. We are going to be praying for open doors of grace. Grace is better than work, because it makes you achieve so much faster effortlessly. You will see great results in all you do and it will be so glaring to all that it is not by your effort but by God’s grace.
- Father, I thank you for opening the door of grace unto me. I thank you for saving me by grace.

2. Father, I thank you for freely making me right by your grace. Thank you Jesus for delivering me from the penalty of sins.
Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. (NLT)
3. Father, I pray for all those who are not yet saved, that they will see the grace that is available unto them. I pray that you will open their eyes of understanding to see the overflowing grace of Jesus.
But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! (NIV)
4. Father, I thank you for the redemption that I have through the blood of Jesus. Father, I thank you for the glory of your grace that made us accepted in your beloved. Lord, I thank you for the forgiveness of my sins according to the riches of your grace.

7. Father, I thank you for giving me life even though I was dead in my sin. Lord, I thank you because when Christ was raised from the dead, I was raised with Him. I thank you Lord for saving me.
That even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) (NLT)
8. Father, I thank you for saving me by your grace when I believed. I pray that you’ll open your door of grace to all those who are still wallowing in sins. Let them come to the knowledge of Jesus’
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. (NLT)
9. Father, I pray for the grace to constantly speak boldly about the word of your grace. I pray that there will be signs and wonders as we proclaim in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
So they remained for a long time, speaking boldly for the Lord, who bore witness to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands. (ESV)
10. Father, I pray for the grace to finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray for the strength to continually testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. (ESV)

13. Father, I pray that you will open my eyes to see the incredible wealth of your grace and kindness towards me. I pray that I will fully have the knowledge of what you have done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.
So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus. (NLT)
14. Father, I pray that I will always harness the grace that Christ has apportioned to me. I pray that the grace of God will work for me in every area of my life in Jesus’ name.
But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. (NIV)
15. Father, I pray that I will continually experience the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that I will begin to enjoy the riches that Jesus Christ had made available unto me when He became poor for my sake.
2 Corinthians 8:9
You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich. (NLT)
16. Father, I pray for the grace to be humble so that I can receive more grace. I pray that you will destroy every spirit of pride in me in Jesus’ name.
But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (ESV)
17. Father, I pray that from Christ’s fullness, I will continue to receive grace upon grace in Jesus’ name.
For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. (ESV)
18. Father, I pray for the grace to work harder and to do greater exploits for Jesus. I pray that the grace of God towards me will not be in vain in Jesus’ name.

20. Father, I thank you for who you have made me by the gift of your grace. I thank you Lord for the grace that you have given to me to preach the gospel. I pray for the grace not to let you down in Jesus’ name.
Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God’s grace, which was given me by the working of his power. To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ. (ESV)

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (ESV)

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. (NIV)
