Day 5

October 5

Key Verse: “On hearing this, Jesus said, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners’.” (Matthew 9:12–13, NIV)

Prayer Point: Let us repent on behalf of the church, for thinking that we are better than the “sinners.”

Prayer: Father, forgive us for thinking we are better than those who are perishing. Give us Your heart for the lost, dying, and broken. Father, we cry out for mercy over the lives of those who do not know You. Just as You called us to salvation, we pray that You would call others in our region to come to You. Thank You for this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
