God of All Mercy, you have been merciful to man since the creation of the world. There are so many things that we have done that go against your word, but because you are a loving Father that cares deeply about his children, you have forgiven us and set us free from any condemning charges. Father, I ask for mercy on behalf of those who are lost. Let your mercy fill their hearts that they may be able to know that you’re the true living God who was and is to come. Help them to know that it is only in surrendering themselves to you that they will find real rest and unconditional love. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
