7 October Liberating Love Devotion

Your weekly love note from God!

Daniel 8:18-19 Incline your ear, O my God, and hear. Open your eyes and look at our desolation and the city that bears your name. We do not present our supplication before you on the ground of our righteousness, but on the ground of your great mercies. O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, listen and act and do not delay! For your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people bear your name!’

How many people in your city are lifting up this kind of prayer to me? And what do those prayers seek? I keep listening for prayers seeking healing, seeking redemption, seeking a new way of being community in the days to come. I listen for prayers that are humble and confess the limitations of a people. Are your people praying the prayers that my son Daniel prayed for his people? What might your community look like if they did?
