Oh Lord, give us compassion and a heart to seek the lost and to care for the needy the way Jesus did. May you heal and deliver us from sin and its punishment. Open the eyes of these your children to see and their ears to hear your message. Soften their hearts to understand it and therefore accept the free gift of Jesus Christ. Free us from our bondage of our sin Oh God and renew us today. In Jesus Christ name, Amen.
