My Prayer for the Day

Prayer Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy
Almighty Father, shine Your love by Your grace and mercy upon the Christians as well as those that are secular. As You and  Jesus asked those that are not Your children  by salvation, COME. I pray that they that are lost in their sins COME to Jesus who is the "Door" and the "Propitiator" to  you and YHWH. COME to Jesusbecause the next second is not promised to you. If your soul is lost, in Hades you will live for eternity with Satan and his angels for "ETERNITY",  with "weeping and gnashing of teeth". In Jesus' name. Amen.

They also reveal something about our place before God: it’s not good—not without Jesus’ saving act that redeems us from our sins.
