My prayer for you and me this week...
Holy Spirit come to us, please. Out of Your great compassion and love, no condemnation, remind us of the dead, dry place from which You rescued us, such that our hearts will be overwhelmed with gratitude, once again, for Your life-giving presence!
Out of thankful hearts, may we reach back to those wandering in the desert, take them by the hand and walk with them to meet You, Jesus! For Your Glory, Lord God - Amen!!
But it was because the LORD loved you and kept the oath He swore to your forefathers that He brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. (Deuteronomy 7:8)
Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called "uncircumcised" by those who call themselves "the circumcision" - remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. (Ephesians 2:11-13)
