Heavenly Father, I thank you for every friend, family member, neighbour, school-mate, work-mate and acquaintance in shopping or in travel. So many of them are pre-occupied with agendas that afford no room for faith. Please help them to see Jesus as very real, very necessary and very kind. Open their eyes and ears to the happy and humbling realization that you have been there for them all along, and that there is newness of life through simple repentance and trust in your timeless promises. This repentance is so much beyond the usual “I’m sorry”. It is revolutionary, and it is given by you. Do it now Father, I pray. Amen.
