Today is the Day of Salvation
Dear Father in heaven…we come to You this evening…our hearts burdened for one so very loved. Our precious Terry has been praying for her Daddy’s salvation for so very long and to date he has not accepted Your freewill offering of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord. Father…You are omniscient…we are not. You know the day and hour of Dad Golden’s salvation…we do not. Each day of his life was written before You even laid the foundation of this world. Your word assures us that You desire that all would come to repentance and that no one would perish. Father…we ask that Dad Golden is one of those “whosoever” that You have called. Your word also tells us that no one is able to come unto You unless You have drawn them. Father…we pray that even now…You are drawing Dad Golden to You so that he might receive the free gift of salvation. We pray that he will know the peace that comes with the forgiveness of all our sins. We pray that before Dad Golden undergoes his surgery that he will receive Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Who can resist You Jesus? You know what it is like to have a loved one not receive Your salvation. Jesus…when You walked in the earth, veiled in human flesh, You knew some people who didn’t receive You as their Lord and Savior. You know first hand the pain that can bring. So Jesus…it is with that pain and burden we come to You. We know that You have a perfect plan and know each day our lives. We pray that today is the day of Dad Golden’s salvation. We pray that You will oversee each aspect of his surgery. Guide the physician’s hands…enable them to clear the blockage with ease. We pray that the surgery goes well and that there are no complications. We entrust Dad Golden to Your perfect will, care and love for him. We ask he has an easy recovery, listens to the doctor’s instruction. We ask You to fill Terry and her family with peace. Peace because they know that the God who loves them…He who created the world. The God who knows the very number of hair on our head and collects our tears in a bottle is the same God in whose hand Dad Golden is entrusted. It’s in Jesus precious name we pray…Amen!
