Praying with Paul: 'Israel's Unbelief'

Saturday, February 12, 2022

Romans 10:18-11:16

Dear Father,

How sorry I am that the people you chose, the nation of Israel, has spurned your Messiah and turned away in unbelief. But how thankful I am that because of their unbelief you have sent your message to Gentiles so that we can be adopted into the family of Abraham, grafted as wild shoots into the natural olive tree.

I rejoice that even today you have redeemed in Christ thousands of Abraham's natural descendants for your kingdom.

I rejoice that I share with them the blessings you gave. Thank you that we are one family.

In the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.
