Father touch all my Family and Friends, Some Hurting, Some Angry, Some wondering Why? God, you are faithful to pick up where we fall short. You fill in the blanks, so to speak, and when we surrender completely to you, we realize that there are a LOT of blanks. Holy Spirit, comfort the hurting people in our lives. Some of us are hurting right now. Some of us are hurting physically. Some of us are hurting emotionally. Thank you for being a personal God who cares deeply about our hurts. We receive your kisses of grace and mercy. Fill us with your love and peace. Caress our loved ones who are hurting and make them whole. God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Despite the evil, wicked, sinful nature of the people of this world, God still loves us. He loved us enough to die to take the penalty for our sins (Romans 6:23). If we receive Jesus Christ as Savior (John 3:16; Romans 10:9), we will be forgiven and promised an eternal home in heaven (Romans 8:1). What we deserve is hell. What we are given is eternal life in heaven if we come to Christ in faith.
