Your arms are open. Your heart beats the rhythm of acceptance, for you desire that all come to a saving knowledge of you. Let us return to You, Lord. Let us run into Your arms that long to hold us closely to your heart. Holy Spirit, turn our paths toward Christ and not away. Turn our lives to repentance and forgiveness. Turn our futures to eternal hope and joy in the name and authority of Jesus, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“For if you return to the Lord, your brothers and your children will find compassion with their captors and return to this land. For the Lord your God is gracious and merciful and will not turn away his face from you, if you return to him.” (2 Chronicles 30:9 ESV)
