Saying Grace ~ Come Boldly before the Throne of Grace

My grandchildren Cammie and Marcus bringing a birthday cake.

My grandson Marcus loves to say “Grace” before a meal.  Whether he’s at home, or at my house with a crowd of fifteen, he’s ready to lead.  We all hold  hands and bow our heads.
“God is great, God is good, Let us thank Him for our food, By His hands we are fed; Give us Lord our daily bread.” Amen.
He takes this very seriously—his attitude one of reverence.  We all take note.
And what is grace?  Surely more than a little prayer before a meal. 
The grace of God is a free gift, unmerited favor, and it comes to us by the Lord Jesus Christ.
For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.  John 1:14
And the greatest act of God’s grace is salvation.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8
Abraham Lincoln said, “Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.”
I know I'm not self-sufficient.  God forbid that I ever be too proud to pray, even a little child's prayer.  It is by His all sufficient grace that we live.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.  Hebrews 4: 16
