Lord, soften the hearts of the unbelieving as we draw near to celebrating your resurrection. Bring them to a saving knowledge of You. Captivate them through your great love for them. Bring them close to your heart so that they can experience the joy of your nearness. Let them experience the joy of your redemption and your salvation in your precious and holy name, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“For you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name’s sake you lead me and guide me; you take me out of the net they have hidden for me, for you are my refuge. Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God.” (Psalm 31: 3-5 ESV)
