Day Seven Theme: Reconcile
As we forgive those who sin against us...
Pray with us for the following:
to break the cycles of resentment, revenge and racism so that relationships are restored.
for signs of Christ's reconciling power in the midst of militarized conflict, revealing God's desire to end all wars.
to restore relationships between women and men, to bring reconciliation in marriages and to renew relationships of children with their parents.
for those who suffer for the name of Christ to endure persecution in the Spirit and grace of Christ.
Scripture: Read Joel 2:23-27: A Call to CELEBRATE
"You will have plenty to eat and...praise the name of the LORD your God, who has dealt wondrously with you." (vs. 26)
When God's people return to Him with all their heart, there is promise of tangible changes and great joy in their communities. Where there has been the curse of oppressive poverty, God desires to bring forth abundance so that many will gratefully praise His name. An even greater spectacle will be God making His home in the midst of His people. He will act wondrously in both goodness and power, surprising the world by revealing His presence among His people.*
