I’ve no right to ask, but…

Luke 7:6 And Jesus went with them. When he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to him, “Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof.7 Therefore I did not presume to come to you. But say the word, and let my servant be healed.

I really have no grounds to ask you for anything.  You are God, You are holy and righteous – I’m somewhere towards the opposite end of the scale.  I have no right to even approach You, let alone ask for anything.  But like this centurion I pray to You, despite my total lack of suitability, because I believe Your grace is greater than my sin.  I have no right to ask but I do.  You have no reason to answer but You do.

And that is why I pray.

Thank You Lord that You listen to me despite myself and answer me out of Your bottomless goodness.
