Father, what we need to heal the brokenness of our world you have generously and freely provided. If only we had the humility to receive it, the wisdom to use it and the courage to proclaim it. Of course Father what we are praying about is the acceptance of the Gospel spoken of in John 3:16 “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”
But Father, I wonder when we will be desperate enough and determined enough to have the resolve to acknowledge You as the one who has given us the answer and the way in Your Son. He is the only way to forgiveness, peace and reconciliation on earth. It is a narrow way because it is only through faith in Him and yet it is wide because it encompasses the whole world.
Father I pray that the announcement given long ago on a hill outside of Bethlehem will be heard and accepted today: Peace on Earth “…..by making peace through the blood of His cross—. Colossians 1:20 (HCSB)Father, this is the way You have chosen and it is Your answer.
