You cannot make it without Gods mercy.
Do we just need Gods grace in dark and shameful moments? Are prayers for mercy only for those times when we really mess up? Jonathan Parnell says we need Gods mercy all the time. In fact, contrary to many church cultures, Parnell shows that asking God for mercy should be as regular as asking God for our daily bread.
Theres no doubt that David was in a terrible predicament when he first prayed the words of Psalm 51. It was a dark and shameful moment in the Bible, and one so dark and shameful it seldom feels relevant to us today. But Davids most desperate prayer is really a prayer for all of usand not just for our worst moments, but for our every moment. In these pages, you'll discover:

This is Gods mercy, and its Mercy for Today.
