One Step Closer To Jesus

Father, I pray for all those close to me.    Those in our family.    Our friends.    All You have brought into my life and across my path.    Please bring each one, one step closer to Jesus.    We are all in different places on our journey down here.    Some are caught up in doubt that You even exist.    Bring them one more step towards faith.    Some have believed the lie that all roads lead to heaven.    Bring them one more step towards the truth.    Some believe You are real but You couldn’t possibly love them or forgive their sins.   Bring them one step closer to Your love.    Others have trusted in You and know they will live with You in heaven but they take your grace for granted and You are not a part of their daily lives.    Please bring them one step closer to following You.    Some believe You and follow You but they are confused and hurting because of trials in their lives.    Take their hands and lead them closer to Your heart.     There are those who love and follow You as close as they know how.    Take them even closer LORD.    Help them to know You better each day.    Please, Father, bring each one of us one step closer to Jesus today.    Wherever we are in our walk, may we be closer to You today then we were yesterday.

    “We are all in different places on our journey down here”

    that is so true. If we could only just accept and condone those differences; let others be as they are.

    thank you
