Today's Bible reading - 1 Timothy 2
What a glimpse into the heart of our God!
Having asked us to remember to pray for all people, we are shown why and what we should be praying for - pray because what pleases God is that people are saved, and so we are to pray for that salvation - by the only means it can be found - through the one mediator between God and humanity, the man Jesus Christ, who gave himself as a ransom for the very people God nows calls upon us to pray for.
A prayer for today
A prayer of repentance - Lord Jesus, we are too often cold, sleepy, bitter, slow. By the fire of your love, warm us, wake us, sweeten us and enable us to run to you. In your name. Amen.
