How to Approach God for Mercy
A Seven Fold Approach
1- Recognize and acknowledge to God that you are in need of mercy from Him.
2- Recognize and acknowledge that you have nothing of worth, yet you come before God because of His great mercy.
3- Call on the Lord reminding yourself that God gives mercy only out of His great and unfailing Love for you.
4- Recognize and acknowledge your doing wrong against God. Tell Him what you've done, knowing that you broke God's Laws. If your heart is honest and sad and you regret that you did wrong things against God, tell Him so. He is listening, and He promises to forgive the honest heart that turns away from its bad ways, and turns to Him for Life. It is better to be humbled by repentance before God than by judgement and wrath by God.
5- Be persistent and do not cease asking the Lord for the mercy you need.
6- Choose to know the Lord God and love His Name, meaning His character. If you love God, that means you will be in a continuous relationship with Him.
7- Show Mercy to other people.
If you do not show mercy, God will not show mercy to you.
