Father, I live in a time when Your Word has spread to cover almost all the earth. In Acts, this was just beginning. Thank You for spreading the Word to Gentiles as well as people in the Jewish faith.
For Cornelius, You sent an angel directing him to Peter. And to Peter, You sent a vision to prepare him to share the Good News with Cornelius and other Gentiles. Thank You for including me in Your message of salvation down through the ages.
Father, I ask that You would continue to send angels and visions to those who have yet to hear of You and Your love for them! All around the world, give each of these people understanding to see Your truth.
Lord, I have loved ones who have forgotten or walked away from Your loving care. Draw them back to You. Return to them the joy of their salvation. Give them a hunger and thirst to seek and receive Your Good News again.
They have been living under the lies and deceitful influences of the world, the flesh, and the evil one. Break their chains and set them free to love You again!
Your psalm tells “how good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!“ I pray for this goodness and this unity in my family. Please bestow this blessing on us so we can walk in Your goodness and Your mercy forevermore.
And even on a worldwide scale, I believe You can use even the worst circumstances imaginable to bring unity and salvation. The pandemic, injustice, unrest, even war – please take what satan means for evil and use it for good. Don’t let any of these painful circumstances be wasted. But use them all to bring people to a saving knowledge of You. Amen
