Proverbs 14:34–“Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” Lord, cleanse your church, give us hearts willing to walk in obedience to You and Your word. Help us to be Your light of love, grace, mercy, and compassion to those who don’t know you. Let the world see Your love through us. As they see Your love, may they want it for themselves. Give the people around us who don’t know You a hunger and thirst for Your fellowship. As our love for You shines outward, may others also fall in love You, the Great God and Creator, the Savior of all who will accept Your great gift of salvation (from the chains of sin). In Jesus’s name, Amen.
