Day 13: Prayer for the whole world

Today’s Scripture:

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Hebrews 4:12-16

Prayer + Reflection

  1. Ask God to give you His eyes to see things in the world the way He sees them.
  2. Ask God to show you the areas of sin in your own life and repent of the sins you have committed.
  3. Commit to follow Jesus in whatever direction He may lead and to participate in His work in your church and community.
