Prayer: Father in heaven, we thank you for the glorious gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, your Son, and our Lord. We grieve at the number of people who would rather starve instead of coming to the table filled with your bounty. We are saddened to see so many people in this world living as though there is no death, and there is no eternity. We long to see your churches full of people who are called by your name, singing your praises. We plead with you today to save our friends and family that do not know you. We know that you are a God who loves to forgive sin. We know that you are the only one who can change the hearts and minds of people. Therefore, we pray to you to work to open the eyes of the blind and the ears of the deaf. We ask that you would do this for the sake of your glory and the advancement of your kingdom. We pray this in the name of the Savior. Amen.
