The purposes of this praye are: Justification, Conversion/Regeneration and Reconciliation.

Compassionate Lord, when Jesus died on the cross, his death reconciled two separate humanities, Jews and Gentiles, into one humanity: “In Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, this making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.” Ephesians 2:13–21 (NIV). It is by Jesus’ death on the cross, his sacrifice in our behalf, that his believers are justified. When we hear the good news of Jesus and accept him as our Lord and Savior, we become new men and women, not subject to the Mosaic law- no longer Jew or Gentile, but all now disciples of Christ. Thank you, Heavenly Father, for your plan of salvation that includes all peoples. Amen.
