Prayer: Father, we give you praise for your infinite mercy and grace and for demonstrating your love to us that when we were still sinners, Christ died for us. We praise you because you are holy, and we thank you that you have redeemed us and called us to yourself. We confess to you that we are often faithless in thought, word, or deed. We ask that you would forgive us and help us to be holy as you are holy.
We pray for our friends and loved ones that do not know you. We pray that you would open their eyes and their hearts to the truth of the gospel. Help them to see their dangerous state and their awful end if they do not receive and rest alone on Christ. We know that we are not capable of changing the hearts of men. We plead with you to do this great work for your glory and honor. We pray these things in Christs’ Name. Amen.
