Almighty God, you are the God who forgives our sins, heals us, and redeems us from the pit. There is no other God who is like you. Father, I pray that 2018 is a year of great renewal and revival. I pray that you draw many our of the bondage of sin and into the arms of freedom. It is for freedom that Christ set us free. Call those to your side who need to find their way back to you. Call them by their names to come out of darkness and into your marvelous light. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, the one who finished the work of redemption on the cross, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2: 9 ESV)
