Daily Topic for May 31, 2009
So we come to the end of the book of Romans, a book in which God’s concern for all nations can be read on virtually every page. There is no more appropriate way to end this study than the way Paul ends the book: giving glory to our Lord Jesus Christ. We need to remember why we are concerned about taking the gospel to the nations: in order to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. All heaven will echo with the praises of people from every tribe, tongue, and nation. That is why we learn, pray and give every day on behalf of the unreached peoples!
Give glory to Jesus Christ!
(This is a condensed version of the prayer believers all over the world will pray today, the global day of prayer. Please join us)
Almighty God, ?together with believers all over the world, ?We gather today to glorify Your Name.? You are the Creator of heaven and earth.? There is no one like You, holy and righteous in all Your ways.? We submit to Your authority as the King of the universe.? Thank You Father, for adopting us into ?Your family because of Jesus Christ our Savior.??? Lord Jesus Christ, ?You alone are worthy to open the scrolls of history,? for You were slain and have redeemed us to the Father by Your blood.? We confess that You are Head of the Church? and Lord of all heaven and earth.? May people from every tribe and language become Your followers? so that Your blessing brings transformation among all peoples.? Let Your kingdom be established in every nation of the world ?so that governments will rule with righteousness and justice.? May Your Name be great, from the rising of the sun to its setting.??
Tear down strongholds and ideologies that resist the knowledge of God. Remove the veil of darkness that covers the peoples. Restrain the evil that promotes violence and death. Bring deliverance from demonic oppression. Break the hold of slavery, tyranny and disease. Come fill the earth with Your glory as the waters cover the sea!
The Spirit and bride say, “Come Lord Jesus!”
