God did not appoint us to wrath but to obatin His salvation in Christ, through faith. Therefore, whether we be alive physically or not, we are still alive spiritually. We are always with Christ, for wherever we are, we are in spiritual union with The LORD.
And we pray:
We were all once the children of wrath as all others (Ephesians 2:3), O Lord, for in that state we were born. But You appointed us to escape that wrath and obatin salvation through Your Son. We know we are not deserving of anything good and can make no demands upon Your Essence – Father.
Help us, therefore, to in all our ways present our prayers to You in true humility as those seeking mercy and grace. Fill us LORD with Your Spirit, Amen
