The bride and the Spirit say, “Come.” The hope of salvation beacons. The Lord of Hosts calls to those who will hear, to the thirsty who desire the free water of life. Come. Come to the saving knowledge of God Almighty. Come to the household of the LORD and learn his ways. Answer the calling. Come to the One who stands to shepherd his flock in the strength of the LORD. Live securely in the hope of the Savior, the Prince, who is our peace. Come to Jesus. “Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling. Calling, ‘O sinner, come home.'” Whisper to the darkness, Father. Touch the shoulder of those bent in sorrow. Lift the face of the unbeliever to see you, Lord. Open their hearts, minds and souls to your message. Turn their heads toward home. Open the gates of heaven and bring them into your household. I pray in the name and authority of Jesus, Messiah, Immanuel, Prince of Peace, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“And he shall stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. And they shall dwell secure, for now he shall be great to the ends of the earth. And he shall be their peace.” Micah 5: 4-5 ESV)
