June 9 – Noon


Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?

(Ezekiel 18:23)


Dear God,

You are a loving and just God, and Your desire is for all people to come to know You and be saved. In this verse, You declare that You have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from their ways and live. Your heart is filled with compassion and mercy, and You long for all to experience Your grace and forgiveness. Help me to have the same heart for those who are lost and in need of Your salvation, and to be a vessel of Your love and compassion to them.

I pray that You would open the eyes and hearts of those who have rejected You, and draw them to Yourself. May they come to know the depth of Your love and the power of Your salvation. Empower me to be a faithful witness of Your goodness and grace, and use me to bring others into Your kingdom. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
