I'm Too Dirty For God To Forgive Me

In the book of Hosea, God uses the prophet Hosea to demonstrate His relationship with children of Israel. God tells Hosea to marry a prostitute and this marriage will reflect God's commitment and devotion to Israel although they worship so many other idols and false gods. God uses this book to speak of His pursuit of Israel, but also to foreshadow Jesus' pursuit and proposal to us even though we've prostituted ourselves by worshiping everything, but God. This prayer is for the prostitute (which is anyone who has ever sinned). The one who feels no matter how much they hope, they're too dirty for God to ever forgive.

Let's pray:

Lord, I place this soul before you at your altar right now. God you literally sent Jesus for the prostitute. Your word even says that the prostitutes and tax collectors will make it into heaven before prideful religious teachers. There is NOTHING that can stop you from loving us. There is NOTHING that can stop you from loving this soul. No one is too dirty to receive your hope and healing. No one is too far gone to receive your mercy and grace. You loved them before they even entered this world. You saw them taking shape in their mother's womb. You word says you ordered their days BEFORE A SINGLE DAY OCCURRED. You knew all that would happen in their life before they did it and yet STILL sent Christ to die for them. Still suffered on the cross. Still took the punishment of their sin, so that they can live eternally with you. That's love no human can fully understand because we're not capable of it, but you are and you have given this love freely. Lord overtake them with your agape love. May you wash their mind from the belief that they're too dirty to receive your hope. And fill their hearts with faith and revelation that YOU ARE LOVE and they are not exempt from YOU OR YOUR LOVE. Silence the lies of the enemy Lord and bring this soul near to your bosom. They are your masterpiece. May they see themselves as you see them. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

May your hope be in Jesus Christ,
