Prayer of the Day
Third Week of AdventDecember 16th, 2014
"“For John came to you showing you the way of uprightness, but you did not believe him, and yet the prostitutes and tax collectors did.”" Matthew 21 : 32
Jesus is still talking to the chief priests and elders. He lets them know that only those marginalised people of society were willing to hear and repent on hearing the preaching of John the Baptist. They themselves had no time for John the Baptist.
Prayer Jesus, give us the courage of our convictions and make us ever ready to stand up to the bullies who try to tell us what is morally wrong is right because it has been sanctioned by the state or some authority. Amen
