Pray for Families (Pray or Prey?)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Those who break the law are put into jails and prisons.  They seek clemency from a judge that they hope will be fair and upright.

Those who break God’s laws, His commandments, find themselves in self-made prisons resulting from following their own will, not God’s.  They think that following their desires is a form of freedom, but instead they unknowingly get caught in the snares of the Evil One.  They become enslaved by their sin and are not free at all.  Luckily though, they are guaranteed a Righteous Judge.  All they need to do is to amend their life and ask for God’s love and mercy. His mercy is as deep as the ocean and His love is without measure.  True clemency and freedom exist only in Him.

He has sent me to bring good news to the afflicted, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, release to the prisoners, to announce a year of favor from the LORD and a day of vindication by our God. Isaiah 61:1-2

We are called to proclaim His mercy and to pray for each other, for we all fall prey to sin and imprisonment. The Lord even offers us a get out of jail free card.  Through our prayer and that of others, we are able to humble ourselves and with a contrite heart, ask for His mercy.

Pray for one another, so we will not fall prey.  Proclaim the liberty found in Christ Jesus.  Let freedom reign!

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Pray or become prey. Pass it on.
