Compassionate and Gracious God, thank you for your Son, Jesus, the atoning sacrifice of our sins and the sins of the whole world. God, make those that are lost in the darkness to know the atoning sacrifice that Jesus made for mankind at the cross. Open their eyes that they may see how much Jesus loves and cares for them. God, may the sacrifice you made touch their hearts in ways that they cannot deny the power of the cross. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
