For the promise is to you and to your children and to all who are afar off, as many as the LORD our GOD will call.
Dear Lord and Father of mankind, forgive our foolish ways.... So much foolishness, so many fools and blind, so many twists of Your Truth. I too was like that once, and even now, saved and being sanctified, I still am still believing a whole bunch of lies and twisted ideas that You desire to reveal and heal in me. Therefore, I thank You reverently, placing myself into Your Loving Care and Correction, declaring that I am Your beloved even with errors that are being revealed in order to be healed. I repent, oh God, of all fretting and worry about how other people's salvations will arise. You, oh God, will raise them up in Your Perfect Timing. My job is to leave them -- and me -- at Your feet each day, wrapped in swaddling clothes!
May we be nurtured into the Fullness of Life by Your Mercy and Grace, oh God. I thank You now, for what is to come forth in other hearts and mine, and for Your Blessed Assurance as I simply pray.
