We at The Christian Chain wish to acknowledge our Jewish brothers and sisters on this day of Day of Atonement. May this time be an easy fast and a fruitful time where you will see reconciliation in your life. Yom Tov
This Day of Atonement is a day of hope. Taking a cue from you, we all should seek inward recognition of our wrongs done to ourselves, our world and our God. We should seek forgiveness from the same. Divisiveness, which has always been present in our culture, is coming to light more and more and we desperately need to seek reconciliation with those that we have wronged.
Our prayer today is for our world and our country.
Lord, please be with us on this day and always. Help us to be mindful of those that we wrong and seek reconciliation; not just one day a year, but as soon as we feel the conviction of the wrong done. And Lord, help us to forgive those that wrong us so that reconciliation can happen. God, we do thank you for sending your Son to accomplish the ultimate atonement and reconcile the world to you. Jesus, thank you for giving up your life and paying the penalty of our sins so that we may have eternal life with you. Thank you for that Blessed Assurance. Holy Spirit, please be with us and give us strength to recognize our fallenness. Give us the conviction we need and help us to respond positively to your prodding. In all things we give this over to you God. Your will be done in our lives. Amen.
