Father God, thank you that your Beloved gave out of his riches to redeem me. Thank you for your grace in accepting his blood in ransom for me. Thank you for your eternal purpose to unite all things, all peoples, all creation and all of heaven in Christ. I ask your heavenly touch on those who have yet to change course and believe. I pray you will drop the barriers and remove the scales that keep them away from you. I pray Jesus will captivate their hearts by his precious name and powerful authority, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.” (Ephesians 1:7-10 ESV)
