Praying with Paul: 'God's Sovereign Choice'

Romans 9:19-20

Dear Father,

All who are descended from Israel do not belong to Israel, nor are men counted as Abraham's children by mere physical descent.

You, O Sovereign Lord, have chosen, according to your own desire and purpose, those you want to continue your work in the world.

Thank you, dear Father, that your choice and mercy has reached to me. Thank you for all that you are doing in my life. Thank you for teaching me to love the descendants of Israel by the flesh. May my share in their inheritance cause even one of them to turn to Jesus Christ in saving faith and give thanks to you.

In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
