Reading the passage again as a whole, how does it cause us to pray?
We can confess to the Lord our natural character and it’s continuing impact on our life.
We can recognize that if we are to be followers of Jesus the values and behaviours of much of the wider world are incompatible with our faith and pray to live distinctive lives for Christ.
We ought to consistently give to God our thanks and praise that he loved us before we could love him.
We can recognize that God’s grace in Christ Jesus is not limited to a one off act at Calvary but is expressed in his continuing handiwork in our lives enabling us to undertake the good works he has prepared for us.
We can pray that we will faithfully follow him in this life until we join him in the heavenly realms.
