Day 18 on 21 Days of Prayer

Video Transcript

Hi everyone, today Day 18 we are going to pray for grace and mercy for those we interact with every day.

There are times in life when the cards seem to be stacked against you, when you are accused, rejected, and up against a wall. In this passage, Paul saw his options and changed his plan by calling for an appeal.
You might think that in calling for an appeal, Paul was acting out of weakness or fear (choosing to not stand trial before the Jews, but choosing instead to go before Caesar). But the reality is that Paul’s decision to postpone what was before him not only gave him distance from the immediate situation that he was in, but also gave him time to seek God’s wisdom and discernment.

Whether in our past, our present, or our future, we each face moments when we feel that our backs are up against a wall. Choosing to respond with the love and grace of Jesus not only reflects the transformation that God has already made in you, but also shines a light on how He is currently working in and through you.

Pray for our Church office, for Kirsty and Eveline and also Hannah our cleaner as they seek to bring God’s grace to all who visit or call the office and church buildings during the week.

Pray that we would have grace and mercy
